Flilp video camera has 13-percent of the camcorder market
The Flip camcorder, the tiny, inexpensive, flash memory-based camcorder has managed to claim 13% of the camcorder market. Since its debut it has been the best selling camcorder on Amazon.
Here’s what it does NOT have:
- Video light
- Optical view finder
- Special effects
- Headphones jack
- High definition
- Lens cap
- Memory card
- Optical zoom
Okay, sounds like junk, right?
It has one button to start or stop recording, another to play what you’ve recorded, and a delete button to delete a clip.
As David Pogue, tech writer for the New York Times puts it, “it’s the video equivalent of a Kodak point-and-shoot camera. It’s the very definition of ‘less is more.'”
Its a camcorder that nearly anyone can use, from children to seniors and anyone in between.
Even transferring videos off of it is a snap. A USB connection swings out and you just pug it into your computer.
The video isn’t as good as standard camcorder but at 640 x 480 at 30 frames per second it’s really not bad and certainly beats a cellphone camera.
