I love capturing time, especially when it comes to my children. Whether it be with pictures or with videos, I would snap every moment if I could. I typically carry a small arsenal of items in my diaper bag, so the thought of toting around a camcorder in addition to the usual goods is not very appealing.
At least, it WAS not very appealing. A fabulous mommy friend of mine reminded me of the “Flip” and all of a sudden the thought became much more appealing. In my husband’s defense, he has a camcorder and has been good about documenting holidays, vacations and major milestones. However, I always seem to get stuck with the camcorder in my bag. Between packing around my arm candies, and my usual bag of goodies, I might as well be a pack mule. Not to mention, I never seem to see the videos once they have been recorded. The camcorder discs are placed neatly on a shelf, never to be seen again.
Enter The Flip. This palm size wonder is perfect for a busy mom who does not have the space or the desire to tote around a massive camcorder, but still wants to capture and share the most precious moments. The Flip can fit easily into a purse or pocket for that matter. It has a built-in flash-drive that makes downloading and sharing a breeze. Not to mention, the price tag is unbelievable!! As of this morning, the Flip Ultra 2nd Generation was priced at $114.99! Who wouldn’t flip out?
