SlideHD Flip Video 16GB Records 4 Hours

Updated on July 30, 2010

 

Flip has a new video camera and this one is quite different than the earlier versions – namely the new sliding viewing screen, the 16GB internal memory allowing up to four hour HD video recording and the 12 hours of video storage.

My first flip had a tiny approximately one inch screen that was used both to shoot the video and to view it afterwards. In contrast the SlideHD Flip has a much larger – 3 inch - resistive touch widescreen. What is a resistive touch screen? It simply means that you use a stylus instead of your fingertip to interact with it. It is also transflective which makes it easier to see in bright light.

One of the best features of a compact video camera is that you can carry it with you – everywhere. It fits in a pocket, a purse or in a tote bag filled with other necessary stuff. The SlideHD Flip video camera is ready to shoot within 4 seconds. That is extremely important when you want to capture unexpected events. No one wants to miss the event while waiting for the perfect shot.

 

Before you head out to shoot some amazing video you need a charge. The lithium ion battery is integrated and it is rechargeable. If you plan to recharge the SlideHD Flip Video camera via USB allow approximately 3 hours. Save an hour by charging via the power adapter. A full charge should get you about 2 hours of recording.

The SlideHD Flip Video camera measures approximately 4.13 inches x 2.17 inches x .98 inches. It weighs under 6 ounces. There is no need to carry a USB cable with you since there is one built in. A small arm with an integrated USB 2.0 connector flips out from the side of the SlideHD video camera and can be inserted into the USB port of a computer.

 

One of the most difficult filming situations is in low light. The SlideHD has ultra low light sensitivity and has automatic low light detection features. Automatic white balance features allow for great video is normal lighting condition. The resolution is 1280 x 720 HD.

 

Although you can use headphones to watch and listen to your stored videos you do not have to. There are built in stereo speakers. If you prefer to watch your videos on a large screen you can connect the Slide HD to a television via the HDMI port.

Video is great but sometimes a still digital photo is better. You may want to post it on a website, you may want to print it on photo paper or you may want to include it into a photo slideshow. The SlideHD allows you to snap a still photo from any video that you shoot.

 

A fancy computer is not necessary. Both PC and Macs are compatible. Compatible OS included Windows Vista or Windows 7 or OS X Leopard 10.5 or Snow Leopard 10.6. The SlideHD operates with built in software that can be updated on demand. Sharing your video is easy with uploads to FaceBook, MySpace and YouTube and editing possibilities include title, music and credits.

The SlideHD Flip Video camera is compact, lightweight and easy to use. It captures video and you can capture still shots from the video. It automatically adjusts for low light and white balance. Both PC and Mac users are covered and the HDMI port lets you watch your HD videos on a television. The slide-out resistive touchscreen lets you share on the spot as well.
