So you all had very nice things to say about the great production quality of the Wicked Plants video my brother, an actual filmmaker, made. But today we’re slumming it in my backyard, where I am trying out the totally amazing Flip Mino HD I got for Christmas. I am so in love with this little camera that I am working on getting one for all four of us GardenRanters so that we can build our Internet video empire. These babies range in price from $130 to $230, are small enough to fit in the pocket of your jeans, and come with insanely easy-to-use editing software built right into the camera (which, by the way, has a built-in USB connection–no cords necessary).
OK, enough geek talk. Oh, except for this: if you’re in the market for one of these, go to YouTube and click ‘watch in high quality’ to get a better idea of what the uncompressed version looks like. Sorry the sound’s a little iffy–now that I’ve done one of these, I’ve figured out how far away I can get from the camera and still get good audio. The next one will be better.Posted by Garden Rant on January 12, 2009 at 5:36 am, in the category Watch Someone Else Do It.
