My Experience
I'm a mom. So, naturally I'm an obsessive (somewhat pathological) picture taker. I love to capture all of the special moments, and the not so special moments, and my little cherubs just breathing and being cute on our camera. Although we have a camcorder (that's fairly compact) for some reason, it seems to be too much hassle to carry it around with me everywhere, so the video that we've captured in the past is sparse to say the least.

There are so many moments....a funny face, voice, the way my adorable princess cannot pronounce certain words (I don't know what I'll do when she learns how to pronounce properly! I'll miss her toddler language and all it's cuteness ;). So I was intrigued when I learned about The Flip, and excited to try out the new Flip
UltraHD! It comes with everything preloaded in the handheld video camera. With simple functions (Play, Delete Record, and Power Buttons), and brilliant video quality.....all you have to do is plug the camera directly into the USB port on your computer (the USB flips out from the side of the camera no cords required!) and the preloaded software automatically uploads , and allows you to edit & share your video! Very easy, very quick! Best of all? The video is crisper, and of better quality than our handheld camcorder!

Being that the Flip UltraHD is the size of my camera, its super easy to bring it along in my purse everywhere! When something catches my attention, and I want to film I don't have to fuss with a bunch of buttons or settings; I can power on the flip and hit the red record button. Yes, ITS THAT SIMPLE!

Every mom should own a Flip! To catch all of those fleeting moments & precious memories! The Flip Ultra HD would make the perefect Holiday Gift!
