BEST OF 2008: Flip Ultra

flip video logoIf you haven't seen this camera yet, you're going to "flip" when you do.

The Flip Ultra is small enough to slip in your pocket or purse. It's simple enough for even the most technologically-challenged to use with ease. It's stylish. It's sleek. It creates stunning movies. And it's only $149.99. You know you want one.

flip ultraI love the ease of this handy little gadget. It's so wonderful to have around because we can record short films throughout the week when our 2-year-old daughter is doing something irresistible (which happens often). Just last week, we filmed her singing the ABCs in front of the Christmas tree. For some reason, she combines the ABCs and "Jesus Loves Me" almost every time she sings it. It's a cute little medley - and I'm so happy to have captured that moment forever.

You could also use this camcorder easily when you're out and about. This is one video camera that you could actually tote around Disneyland with you and not feel weighted down because of it. I'm telling you...this thing is tiny...and it's a treasure for any parent.

WIN IT! One winner will receive a Flip Ultra. To enter, leave a comment on this post prior to Wednesday, December 31 at midnight (don’t forget to follow the rules). * Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

  1. Going a a really big trip this summer: Alaska cruise. Love to have the Flip to record it. Thanks for the contest.

  2. Even though I don't have a camcorder, I would give this to my daughter (she'd record things for me!) because she is into making movies, doing plays and animation, etc...
    harmonden[at]wowway.com

  3. I've wanted one of these for a long time. I'd be very happy to win. My children would run and hide because I'd probably use it daily at first!!

  4. I don't take as many videos of my son because I don't lug our big camcorder around. I feel like I miss some of his funniest moments and it would be nice to have something portable that actually records well

  5. I never had a video camera to record my chidlren when they were young, but, it would nice to record their achievements as young adults. Thanks for this chance.

  6. I'd love to win this and gift it to our daughter for her birthday, she got a fuji camera this past year, and it broke through no fault of hers, and fuji won't stand behind their warranty, bad fuji!

  7. It's so cute! I'd love to have one to record my critters so my nephew (who lives in another state) could see. He loves animals, so he'd love to see a video of animals from my house.
    Thanks!

  8. Could really use this. I'd love to post videos on my blog but don't have an easy way right now. This would be so perfect. Plus, I could capture all those little childhood moments you don't want to forget. Thanks ever so much!

  9. What an amazing prize--it's so convenient that it plugs right into the computer via USB! This would be great for me--I'm getting married in a few months and I'd love to be able to film the ceremony! I don't have my own video camera, and this would be a wonderful way to put my wedding online for out-of-country friends and family!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. I see this advertised alot in blogs and whatnot. I love the concept of the built in usb port to make uploads simple. I don't have a video camera and shoot with a DSLR so I feel my kids are missing out on something they will enjoy later in life. I don't have any videos of myself as a kid and I wish I could see my mannerisms and hear my little voice from way back then ( not really THAT far back ;) lol) I love seeing videos of my husband when he was 3 or so it's so sweet to see and hear him as a little boy. Thanks for the entry

  11. Wow, this is a cool looking camera. Would love to win. Great giveaway, and thanks for having the contest. Happy Holidays!

  12. Ooo these look so cute and I love that you just plug them into the USB port and go... I dropped hints but alas no Flip....

  13. I have been thinking about getting a Flip. I hardly ever get out our old camcorder, the little mini tapes are such a hassle. A Flip would be fun for our whole family to use.

  14. this woud be so great, i still have the old school kind from the 90s with the actual mini tap in it! this would be such a better change, i hate having to lug that thing out!

  15. Oooooh... a camcorder. My wife has been getting into photography lately. I was able to get her a new camera last year and she's like a addict! She has taken several short videos with her digital camera, but nothing like what she could do with this! She has been doing a wonderful job recording my boys youth. This would be a neat tool for her to have!

  16. This camera is sure genesis. It's so small, convenient and most of all practical for a busy Mom who wants to capture memories that will last a lifetime. Yo, metro mom I know you know that this is one of the most amazingly easy to use little cameras out there. It’s stupendously rad and even the kiddos could use it. Keep up you amazing blog it’s so insightful and full of useful tidbits!

  17. Some dingwad friend of my husband's stole my video camera when we moved 3 yrs. ago and I've missed 3 yrs. of moments to video of my daughter. I hope whichever dingwad friend stole it gets a groin rash every single time he uses my stolen camera!

  18. Wehave a 10 year old (literally, we got it when we got married) video camera that is on its way out. This would be a way cool replacement.

  19. my husband and I are retired now and I am always grabbing a camera for either my grandkids fun and also when we travel. Thanks for a nice giveaway!

  20. I would love to win this camera. The convenience of keeping it in my purse would allow me to capture those great moments of my childen, otherwise would have been missed.

  21. I've been trying to win one of these for my nephew. But after all the Christmas bills...I'd probably keep it for me. 8)

  22. I have an old VHS camcorder, I need a new one and this looks perfect for my needs. I would like something that is lightweight and small enough for my purse but still offers great technology. That would be a Flip Ultra! Thanks for the giveaway. Happy New year!

  23. What a truly beauiful and inspirational website!
    How wonderful that you share your stories and offer pertainant information to other women. You go girl! With congratulations on your growing family, my best wishes for the new year. Deb

  24. I just bought my sister a Flip camera for Christmas -- she used it to tape me and my parents opening our gifts, and I was shocked how great the video and audio quality were for such a compact camera. I'd love to win one of my own now that I've seen it in action. Thanks for the chance!

  25. This looks like just the ticket for an old geiser like me. Easy to use, easy to pack around and looks to take fine video. I could catch my nine grandchildren in all sorts of great situations.

  26. I was just thinking that I needed something like the easy-to-use Flip Ultra to record some of the funny things that my children and dogs do.

  27. These Flip camcorders are the NEATEST things! I gave my son one for Christmas, but unfortunately he's heading back to college next week...with his Flip...

    I tried his camera yesterday, and I've got to say this is so, so easy to use. You just film (easy), plug into computer and your videos are right there...the software is built right into the Flip!

    I so desperately want one of these for myself...I got hooked using his!

  28. I have been wanting Flip Video Ultra for some time now. My huby and I were hoping to get it as chrismas gift, but no, we did not get it. :( I love the trim design and software package. Hope I win!

  29. I love this!! My grandkids are always doing cute things. I always saying, I really need to record them. They grow up so fast!

  30. My kids are always doing amazing things, and I would love to have this "at the ready!" How cool that it has it's own USB connection attached, and I love the waterproof case accessory.

  31. This is a great prize. I love how it is so small. It will be able to fit in my purse with no problem to catch all of the random moments in life.

  32. I would love to have this camera while traveling. Headed to Guatemala next month and it would be put to extensive use. Especially with the built-in USB connection, it would be so easy to pull it out at any old computer and upload it all to the internet

  33. I love how compact this is! It would be wonderful for taking videos of the kids, especially since we don't have any and they're already 5 and 4.

  34. We have camcorder, but it is hard to bring it with us all the time. The Flip is so small and light I can carry it with me all the time. Cool contest.

  35. I've been hearing a lot about flip camcorders and think they sound fantastic. I don't have one but think it would be a fun gaget to have, particularly in the summer for vacations and for family traditions. Thankfully electronics get more affordable as time goes on so perhaps someday I will own one. Until then, I guess I'll just keep snapping photographs. :)

  36. My friend just posted a video of her new son through flip. She's not that bright (hope she's not reading this!!!), so I know it has to be super easy to use!

  37. I have been reading some about this camera online and it really sounds like a great gadget, and the price is very reasonable as well!

  38. My husband and I have been wanting a Flip Ultra camcorder for quite some time now. Our daughter is almost 6 months old now (and wow has the time gone by fast) and we would love to capture some of her adorable candid moments quickly and easily with this! We were hoping to get one for Christmas, but there were so many other necessities that we needed that this had to be put aside this year. It would be a dream come true to win one! We would get so much use and enjoyment from it! Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

  39. After reading your original review and looking at their website I can easily see why you chose the Flip Ulta as one of your Best of 2008! Crossing my fingers that we win this great (yet small) camera!

  40. We are expecting our first grandbaby and also a trip to Australia! THIS WOULD BE WONDERFUL FOR US TO HAVE TO CAPTURE OUR SPECIAL MEMORIES!!

  41. Camcorders keep getting smaller and so convenient. This Flip looks stylish and fun, great to have with you ALL the time and never miss a special moment.

  42. I have a friend that started taping me with a flip. Not realising that it was a camcorder, I "Froze & Posed". When my friend told me that it was a camcorder, I just smiled and said "I'm standing still just to get more attention!" ;)

    It would be great to capture the whimsy of the world with one of these great camcorders!

  43. I would LOVE to get this! Our camcorder only works about 20% of the time and I feel like I'm missing so much of my daughter's special moments!

    Thanks! You have really great giveaways!

  44. I would love a new Flip. We have one of the originals and it comes in handy with our toddler's antics. It is soooo easy to upload videos and share with the built in USB port- love it.

  45. I want to take this fishing so I can share with the world me hauling in a one hundred pound plus alligator gar on the Brazos River.

  46. This flip camcorder is super lightweight and easy to use. I can think of at least 4 people who I would gift it to if I win. Thanks for the contest!

  47. I love the idea of a small video camera. I can take video with my still camera, but it is ugly, nasty, worthless. From what I've seen, the Flip has pretty good video, and I would love to be able to have video of my kids as they grow!

  48. What an absolutely fantastic giveaway. This Flip which can be carried in my handbag will make those times when I would say "wish I had my camera" a reality. Some Kodak moments should never be missed. This Flip would make those times a reality. Thanks for the opportunity.

  49. I have been wanting one of these since they first came out. I think it would be easy to use and I could carry it easily in my purse. I would love to own one of these. thanks for offering it to us.

  50. im 15, i love your posts! i'd really like to win this i was going to ask for this for christmas but i can't afford it ! this is a great contest its one of the things christmas is about making people happy!

  51. I went to purchase "tapes " for my camcorder this week......I guess I'm really out of it. They are close to not even selling "tapes" anymore. I'd love to catch up with technology with this baby!

  52. I wanted a flip but decided against it since I am getting a Nikon D90 and it take decent HD video. Then I realized how long it's going to take to save for a Nikon D90. This would be great to use for the YEAR until I get it. ;)

  53. I'd so love to win this! I don't think there's any way, even at that reasonable price, we can afford to buy it, so I'll have to win it! Thank you for the chance!

  54. Some days I feel like I am the only person in my whole town without a video camera. I'd love to have some videos of my beautiful, amazing kids to supplement all the photos we take. Thanks for the chance to win!

  55. I could definitely put this awesome camcorder to good use! I've been needing one that makes vlogging easy. I'd love to win.

  56. I would do back flips for this handy camcorder. I'm old enough to remember the first bulky camcorders that you needed to work out just to hold one up. Now even a weakling grannie can make movies!

  57. I don't have a camcorder and would love to capture some of the cute things my niece does and says.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  58. This would be so Perfect for me. As it is small enough to carry in my purse so that I will never have to miss another priceless moment with my children.
    Thank you so much for always offering such a wonderful contest.
    Happy Holidays !

  59. I would love one of these. It would come in so handy for recording all the cute things my granddaughter is doing now. Thanks for having this great giveaway.

  60. It is so nice that someone made a camcorder that is basically point and shoot. Not being a technically savvy person, this is the best of both worlds!

  61. I love that this camcorder is simple to use and can take up to 60 minutes of action. It is enough time to get any family special occaision or vacation days activities. I'd use it when hunting mushrooms to teach my granddaughters what to look for and to "get my mushroom eyes." You can always find them faster after you have spotted the first Morels of the season.

  62. These flip cameras were such a great invention. And the new flip minoHD - too cool! Flip has tapped the market of on-the-go moms and dads, wanting to capture special moments with their kids. Being so small and portable, makes it all reasonable and possible. Love it.

  63. These are so nice! I have wanted a camcorder for so long but this is the one I really want! :)
    Thanks for the contest.

  64. this is so small it will fit in my pocket. that way i would always have it handy for those special moments.
    please enter me and happy holidays.

  65. I've been trying to win this since I first saw it online. I keep seeing things that would make great videos if only I had....Winning it would be...........VICTORY!

  66. Count me in! I have been following the reviews and would love to have the convenience to film my kids on a moments notice. Thank you for the contest!

  67. I used to do professional work in video, with costly rented cameras. Now I'd love to have a Flip Ultra to document my personal life and memories!

  68. I checked this out at a Best Buy recently and it is truely neat. Fits in your hand and with the built in USB hookup very easy to d/l stuff to the laptop.

  69. Ive never owned a camcorder so would love to have one and would take videos of my son and pet and wildlife and nature. skyxsky27(at)gmail.com

  70. I keep hearing lots of great things about the Flip. I especially like hearing how easy they are to use. Would love to have one.

  71. I would love to win this camera! It’s small enough to carry in my purse all the time, that way I can always capture those special moments and memories of my boys.

  72. Finally, a gift for me that I didn't have to purchase. I would love to win this.
    Thanks for the nice item.
    Happy New Year!

  73. My wonderful but disabled wife of more than 38 years would just LOVE this prize. She has been wanting a recorder for a long time. Thank you for this great contest and prize!

  74. Fabulous little gadget! Would love to have one to video the kids before they're off to college! Thanks for the giveaway!

  75. I don't have a camcorder. It is a shame, because I don't have a video record of my kids growing up. They are not quite grown yet and it would be great to save some memories of them now. I've heard good things about the Flip. Old camcorders were so difficult to deal with. This looks like a piece of cake.

  76. I would love to win a Flip camcorder--I would have so much fun making videos! It would be truly fun to have one for a long-awaited trip to Ohio I am taking in May to a big science fiction fan convention!

  77. checked out the specs. and it's pretty good that it can record for up to an hour. a lot can happen in and hour and it's easy to transfer. thanks for the chance!

  78. Our regular camcorder recently stopped workong, and this would be a great thing to capture all the funny and silly things my three kids do.

  79. We have a daughter on the way and I would love to be able to capture her special moments. I've heard great things about the Flip video so this would be awesome.

  80. I would really love to win this. My grandchildren are growing so fast and I'd love to capture some of those special moments.

  81. I won one of these a while back. It is so cool and so easy to work. I used it yesterday on Christmas Eve. If I was to win this one, I would give it as a gift. Its a really cool product.
    Thank you

  82. I love how it is so simple that even I could use it without any real problem! I love the easy USB connection and easy editing options

  83. I don't own a camcorder, and I saw that the Flip Ultra is the best small camcorder on the market. I sure would like to have this one .

  84. Wow! I would love a Flip - we have a chunky camera from the late 90's, so it doesn't get used much - and I never get the right tapes for it. Thanks for the chance.

  85. I'd love to win this and capture all those little moments that happen on the go. I love how small it is, much easier to carry around in your purse than a camcorder

  86. I can think of a hundred times just in the last month when I wanted a camcorder handy. This is just the size to keep with you at all times. Thanks for the generous giveaway. :-)

  87. I've been trying to save for one of these for months now....but especially with Christmas, the money just seems to have other places to go. I don't have any video of my gorgeous boys, and would love to be able to document their childhood on video. Thanks for the great giveaway and Happy Holidays.

  88. I would love to have one of these cameras...I have been looking for one, but they are so expensive I haven't been able to get one yet.

  89. I heard about this but knew I wouldnt be able to afford it. I am a mother of four and have been married for 17 yrs. but have always lived paycheck to paycheck as my husband is the only one who has worked. We owned a video camera when we first got married but had to sell it so now we rely on using a regular camera. It would be nice to win this in order to take home videos to share with our kids when they get older..and their kids years after that.

  90. My husband has really been wanting to take home videos, but our camera is too big to lug around with us. This would be very very cool.

  91. I'd love a Flip, we've always wanted a camcorder and this would be perfect for family get-togethers and concerts at my daughter's school.

  92. I have been trying to win one of these forever. If i don't win one i am going to have to buy one..it is a good thing it is reasonably priced.

  93. these look awesome. my sister is always filming her kids in their activities using her digital camera, but that only gets a little bit of video and it's a bit grainy. this would be so much better. Thanks.

  94. I would love to win a Flip. It would be much better quality & more convenient to use this than the record feature on my old digital camera.

  95. We need a new video camera BAD. Ours stopped working the other night, right in the middle of my son's Kindergarten Christmas show. What a bummer.

  96. Wow--my old camera takes up so much space when I try and take it any where--it is a dinocam--would love to have one of the new small ones like the flip.

  97. this would be such a perfect valentine's day gift!! i've been trying to get my hands on one of these, it looks so awesome

  98. Its amazing how far technology has come in so little time. I remember when the first camcorders came out. My FIL bought one and it was a behometh. The thing weighed like 20 pounds. Plus it had a wire attached to it so you couldn't go too far while filming. Unbelievable!

  99. I want one of these so bad...they're so small and easy to carry around with you for when something is unexpectally happensw

  100. I think owning a Flip would be great because of its compact size; it'd be simple to always slip it in your pocket or bag so it's always available to capture a moment.

  101. We have an older Flip and love it. The quality is not quite as good as our large camcorder, but it works great for travel. I would love to win this for my brother who doesn't have a camcorder. Thanks!

  102. I love the Ultra in black, looks so modern and sleek in that color. I love that they have The Flip Video Underwater Case, I would buy the case to be able to take underwater scuba video.

  103. I've had very bad luck with camcorders and after two attempts still don't have a functional one. Thanks for the giveaway!

  104. These look so great. I have been wanting to get one. These would be great with 4 kids and 2 of them just babies it would come in handy. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  105. true story,my daughter was just saying we should get one because she has heard great things about the Ultra Flip camcorder. my kids are growing so fast and this would be a great thing to win, thanks for the chance

  106. I entered hundreds of Pepsi points trying to win a camcorder, and I never won one, maybe I will be lucky with this cool site.

  107. i really need one of these my kids are growing up before my eyes and i need to catch it as soon as i can please let me win

  108. I have been wanting one of these cameras since last Christmas. Unfortunately Santa didnt deliver ;) I would sooo love to win. Thanks!! If I win, I can take photos to send to friends/family out of state, and work on video reviews for my website.

  109. If I won the Flip, I would gift it to my fav niece who just gave birth, via C-section, to her first child last week! She will have many memories to keep during her Motherhood and the Flip would be the perfect tool to record those!

  110. This would be great to win and keep with you at all times. That way if you are ever involved in a vehicle accident you could film the positions of the vehicles etc., proving the other person came in your lane and hit you and that you didn't hit them, especially if you are in an area where there were no witnesses. You could also get their license plate that way, as well as a picture of them if they should claim in court that they weren't driving and that their vehicle was stolen.

  111. Who wouldn't love to win this to capture all those precious moments of their children?! This would be much nicer to use than my digital camera.

  112. yes i must say this is a realy nice video camera and well what do i like abt it every thing with some thing like this i could take it every wheres and well get some grate video and things of my little one its just too nice and well all the colors thay got it in there all so grate please enter me in for this i realy love to win it thanks beside that i never had any thing as nice as this

  113. I've never had a video camera, but this looks easy enough that even I could figure it out! Besides, it's time I move up from taking 100 pictures of the same thing to show action sequences!

  114. 'Awesome' giveaway prize offering! And just what I asked Santa to bring me this Christmas! Please, include me in your giveaway drawing. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

  115. This would be great to capture those moments when my daughter is incredibly cute. It would be so nice to capture these moments before they are lost.

  116. Wow! So tiny! It could fit in my purse, and be readily available for kids' sports events, concerts, school functions, and impromptu day excursions. Thank you for this opportunity.

  117. I have lusted after this camera since it came out and I think I have tried to win it from every possible contest giving one away! It just isn't in our budget to buy one, but I would love to have something so small and easy to take along as well as so easy to operate!! Thanks for the chance to enter. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

  118. I have been wanting one of these and have looked at them. This would be a great Christmas present, and probably the only one I will get!

  119. I've been looking at these flip cameras for a couple of months. I would love to have one. Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity!

  120. This camcorder looks cool and useful for traveling and going places. I love making films, so this would be perfect for me!

  121. What a fantastic prize! These Flips sound so great and your description really makes it sound wonderful. I'd love to get one of these to carry with us to capture those ever precious moments with our children. Thank you so much for offering this giveaway!

  122. It's so small. I love that it can fit in your purse to capture those great moments you aren't expecting. My first subjects would be my nieces.

  123. I have been looking at these for some time, but can't justify the expense just now. I would love to be able to get some video of my grandbaby. I really want to capture an episode of "cute face," when she scrunches up her face and laughs after being told not to put something in her mouth.

  124. I am so technologically challenged that something like this that is so uncomplicated to use is perfect. The size is great as well, can be carried anywhere.

    brn2lisn(at)gmail(dot)com

  125. I would love to win one of these Flip camera's I keep hearing so much about, they look like they are pretty easy to use which is a big help for me since I am technically /electronics challenged and can use all the help I can get when it comes to electronics, Thanks for the great giveaway and Merry Christmas to all

  126. This Flip Ultra looks awesome, I would love to give this to my daughter, she takes awesome videos, but her camera broke and I haven't been able to replace. Thank you for the opportunity. Happy Holidays!!

  127. Thank you for offering such a great prize. Good luck to every entrant. The Flip Ultra is a video camera anyone could carry with ease and use at every opportunity.

    Best wishes for happy holidays and a prosperous 2009!

  128. I really like this FLIP ULTRA Video camera! I would take much more video carrying this around in my handbag. The size and convenience is great!

  129. Ooh, new camera much needed at christmas time. I really hope we can get one seeing as ours has been played with a few too many times by our 3 year old who believes herself to be the next photographer in the house!

  130. The Flips are quite popular aren't they? My video camera burned out several years ago...and sadly we've never replaced it. I think of all the things that I should be recording. It kinda breaks my heart to know that I don't have those moments on camera. I'm hoping to take the kids to Disneyland this summer (touch wood) and I'll be going solo with my 2 as my hubby will stay and work. Where it is small and compact, now I really, really want one! Thanks for the chance to win!

  131. WHen I first saw one of these I wanted it. For the same reasons as yourself. To capture those little moments that you want to last forever. Well, hubby bought me a nicer camera instead that took good little videos as well. Unfortunately that was the camera that was stolen a couple of weeks ago when our home was broken into. So, I'm back to square one wanting something to capture those little moments. Hum, just thought, hope my parents brought their camera, it's better than the one we have left.

  132. I have been wanting a small camcorder to record family events, something nice and portable and I love that it's so easily hooked up to the computer!

  133. my sister needs to create a portfolio for her application to parsons, she could really use this! would love to win it for her

  134. This is perfect to pull out at any second to snap that pic of your favorite hottie...It's nice to have something so small they won't notice.

    Ok that sounded creepers, but I swear I'm not. ;)

    -Danielle

  135. Today is my husband's birthday and it's snowing very hard outside... I didn't get him anything yet. So if you pick me I can give him the flip camcorder and he can take with on his fishing trips.

  136. since we do live a long way from family, I would love to get into volgging! This would be a perfect tool to help me get going on that!!!!

  137. What a concept! A digital movie camera that isn't too bulky to carry around. There are always things I would love to record for posterity but don't want to lug anything around. The Flip sounds amazing!

  138. I just love the idea of a camcorder small enough to fit in your purse. I can't tell you how many times I've been out somewhere and thought "If only I could get this on video."

  139. I've seen this tiny camcorder and thought about buying one for my son and wife who do not take nearly enough pictures of my granddaughter. I'll give it to them and insist on videos of their little sweetie

  140. We don't even have a video camera so we would love this. Lily is now crawling all over the house - I would love to show my parents or in laws how fast she is or how messy she is when she truly "digs" into dinner.

  141. Wow, those look really fabulous. With a baby comes tons of stuff to lug around. I always want to be ready to capture cute moments on film, but I don't want to lug around all the equipment that goes with it. A flip would be perfect for squeezing into my already overfilled diaper bag.

  142. Oh my goodness! What a great prize!! This would be perfect to keep in my purse so I never miss another moment of my daughter's humor. I'm always wishing that I could capture more funny moments on camera. m_huston(at)hotmail(dot)com

  143. We typically use our digital camera to take short videos but it would be great to have a gadget that's actually meant to take videos. It also wouldn't consume all the memory on our camera memory card!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  144. I just had a baby, so this would come in handy. I heard that these are really easy to use and they're so small! That would be great considering I'm already lugging around enough stuff in my diaper bag!

  145. These are the coolest little units. Seriously. I had one in my hands for about 1.25 minutes before it disappeared with my daughter back to college. :(

  146. My niece has one of these, and she brought it while visiting last year. The little hand-held device is one of the coolest electronic items I have seen in a long time. Given that I refuse to lug around our 10-year old heavy and outdated camcorder, this would be great!

  147. I would love to win this...so I can take pictures of my growing toddlers! I love how small it is, I can take it anywhere!! Awesome! THANKS!

  148. These look so great and easy!!! It'd be so much easier than lugging around a heavy, bulking video recorder (which I did until it broke). I would love to win one.

  149. I have been looking at these for the last year and love the idea of them! I think if we had a video camera that fit easily in my diaper bag...we'd be a lot more prone to use it.

  150. I have heard great things about the Flip. I actually purchased the RCA Small Wonder instead but would love to be able to compare the two. They are great for capturing things quick and easy to transport too.

  151. I would love to be able to take pictures to share with our families. Everyone lives in California and we live in Washington, so pictures are an important way to stay in touch.

  152. I don't typically get all excited about new toys but I have on this one. I would love one so I could capture the funny things my son does and also be able to send the clips to family back home. I have a daughter who is 20 also and oh how fast they grow up and I didn't have a video camera back when she was small.

  153. I would love to have one of these. I have 4 kids that I would love to take video of. It would be great also to be able to send the video clips to their grandparents.

  154. This would be a great addition to our family holiday get-togethers. I would love to memorialize the humorous but crazy anti-Christmas uncle, the Festivus-for-the-Restofus-cousin, the dysfuntional husband's family -- haha -- and of course my normal family.

    Thanks for the wonderful opportunity. Happy holidays to you and yours.

  155. My husband takes movies of everything, wouldn't it be great not to have to haul that big camera around, especially when we travel. What a great idea!

  156. Wow, this does sound fantastic! I use the "video capability" on my little digital camera, but the storage space is really limited & the quality isn't great. I could definitely use help in being a better recorder of my cute kiddos!

  157. I have been wanting to get one of these for my daughter. Much cheaper so if it gets broke, lost or stolen...I wont cry as much. lol

  158. These gadgets are really nifty... I have a friend who has one and love it! I want one too!! I need a new camera to film my new baby due in February!

  159. Believe it or not - I don't have a camcorder and have been eyeing these Flip cameras. They look very portable and easy to use.

  160. I have been wanting one of these for awhile too. Our big camcorder is kind of intimidating to me. I would like something that is a bit more user friendly for uploading video, like the Flip.

  161. I've seen one of these in action and they're great! I would love to have one of these to capture those precious moments with my grandchildren.

  162. My project is making a film of the progress of our pond being cleaned and coming to life again for fish and wildlife. This would be of great help if I could get some video when I see the chances happening in front of me. Happy Holidays.

  163. One of my new years "resolutions" is going to be to keep a better record of all of the things our boys are doing/saying that we delight in! I know my husband got me some journals to record these precious moments in, but this camera could really help me out too!!

  164. I used these in one of my Education classes in College and I loved it! It is so easy to use. I would love to have one for me to play with.

  165. I don't have a camcorder to record all the special moments. It is one thing that my husband and I should have invested in a long time ago! I would really love to win this to help us record those memories!
    thanks for the giveaway!

  166. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I have been looking at these to get my niece as a shower gift for her first baby.

  167. I would like to win the flip, to record my children and step grandchildren's cherished moments. These moments can be a simple as eating their first ice cream cone to celebrating their first birthday. 19 Years ago i had a sony video camera. It was so big compared to this one. I look forward to not getting backaches from videotaping and possibly having a pocket/purse sized video camera instead. What a great prize!

  168. My 11-year-old daughter is a budding photographer and videographer and would love this. It's so small and compact. Thanks for the contest.

  169. I want my own camera that I don't have to share with my husband! Seriously! K, this weekend series thing is exciting. Yay! :)

  170. I've really been wanting one of these because they're so compact and easy to use. But my husband is skeptical of the quality. My fingers are crossed that I can just bypass him to get one for myself.

  171. I have been wanting one of these for a while! It would be so nice to be able to capture my kids on video and have a good picture and easy upload to my computer so I can share with family!!

  172. Wow! So tiny! It's amazing that it can record with such clarity and precision while being so small, but such is technology today. This would be a fun gadget to play with, I must say!
