The Flip Mino
The Flip camera is changing the way you record your home movies. The camera is small enough to fit in your purse, briefcase or even your pocket. The camera flips open to show the USB port, which is how you upload the video to your computer.
The Flip Mino is smaller than its original counterpart. The camera holds 60 minutes worth of video. The camera is easy to use; with only 7 buttons for zoom, playback, record and delete. Batteries are not required in the Mino; the camera charges in your computer's USB port. The Mino can also be personalized with various designs and themes.
