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.
