Flip Video Revisited

Chris Pirillo recently discussed the Flip Ultra in this youtube video.

 Push came to shove last week when we discovered our media center’s digital videocamera was unusable.  I pulled out the Flip Video camera to film the English III Jazz Age Literature classes’ presentations.

The camera captured the presentations well, as I expected it would.  However, I was reluctant to use the camera’s software after having little success with it last winter.  I had downloaded an upgrade to the software on my personal laptop, but hadn’t asked to do so on my desktop at school.  I brought the camera home, uploaded the video clips onto my laptop, and saved them with no problem. 

The software fix solved the problems I had with the program freezing up and it performed beautifully.  I am impressed with the email and greeting card capabilities the software offers and used them to share a clip of my three-month-old grandson laughing.

I am now a convert of the Flip Video and will get the software fix downloaded onto my school desktop so that students and teachers can make use of this little gem.

    Are you able to post any of the presentations? Would love to see what they were doing and how they came out with the camera…

    I can ask the teacher who is part of the presentation if I could post just the portion of the video featuring her; I don’t have permission to post the videos of the students.
