Digital camcorders are increasing in popularity today as the number of users capturing and sharing videos across the Web climbs.
Users are turning to online video sharing sites to watch TV shows, music videos, upload personal content, and more. In fact, according
to Nielsen Online, video sharing site YouTube (News
), for example, nearly doubled its audience since last year.
Along with the increased capturing and sharing of videos, comes the need for digital cameras that are affordable and easy to take along any where users go.
To answer to this need, Pure Digital Technologies
is introducing a new version of its Flip Video camcorder, Flip Mino HD, a small, easy to use HD camcorder that fits into user's pockets and makes editing and uploading videos over the Web fast.
The company's Flip Video family of digital camcorders has experienced great success after just one year in the market with over 1.5 million camcorders sold.
Market Research firm NPD notes Flip Video is currently the number one best-selling camcorder in the U.S. Also, the company has been ranked
the fastest growing
Silicon Valley Company by Deloitte (News
) in their Technology Fast 50 program.
The Flip Mino HD camcorder, offered at an affordable $229.00 (MSRP), will make it possible for more users to take part in the online video sharing phenomenon.
Because the camcorder weighs just over 3oz. and can record up to 60 minutes of HD video, it's possible for users to take it with them and easily capture moments at any time and share them across the Web.
The camcorder also comes with Flip Video's FlipShare on-board software which includes a simple drag-and-drop interface and allows users to simply plug the camcorder into a computer using the camera's flip-out USB arm and automatically organize, edit and share video on YouTube, MySpace (News
), AOL Video or via email
“Flip Video camcorders are affordable, easy-to-use and, most of all, fun.” said Jonathan Kaplan, Pure Digital’s Chairperson and CEO. “FlipShare now extends this experience to the computer, making it even simpler to organize, edit, and share videos with anyone.”
With more and more consumers demanding personalization, Flip Video also offers a next-generation personalization platform so users can choose from designs or create their own design for the camcorder.
More options mean users can choose styles that match their personalities, lifestyles, even clothing and these designs are available at no extra cost. User designs can be shared with others to earn commission for themselves, or for non-profit causes.
