We got a new video camera a few weeks ago. It is called Flip video. Glen Beck gave it lots of praise on his radio show, so we bought one. It was really cheap (for a video camera) and it is so easy to use, even my mom could figure it out...maybe even without reading the directions. It has a flip out USB connector right on the side of it, and all you do is flip out the plug, and stick it into your computer. It is so awesome. We also bought an underwater housing for it, so hopefully soon, Darwin and Brookin can take it out scuba diving with them. It has a really good quality picture, and the sound is good. I was watching the clip on the camera, and couldn't hear it very well, but when I put it on the computer, it sounded just fine. Anyway, here is a short video of us while camping this week.
**03/24/08**As a short side note...it took me four days to figure out how to post this video. It was too large (154 MB and blogspot only accepts 100MB or less), and even after setting up YouTube, it took me several hours to figure out how to link the two. Actually they are still not linked...it just says "fetching your information, please wait" and never loads, so I just copied the embedded link, and that is how I got it on here. If any of you have other suggestions, please share them!! Thanks! The video quality is much better than it shows too...so don't judge the video quality by this clip. I will try to post a shorter video using blogspot, and maybe it will be better quality. ~@~Melissa~@~
