Coming with 12 hours of video storage and four hours of recording time, the SlideHD lets you record and instantly play back your videos on its slide-out 3-inch touchscreen display. The mini camcorder comes with 16GB of internal memory, a two-hour battery span, 2x digital zoom, and video recording in high def resolution (1280x720) at 30 frames per second. Plus, you can customize your SlideHD with different artist skins, your own photography, or don a generated pattern to give your Flip some flair. As you already know, the Flip SlideHD is available online and in stores now, and comes with a $280 price tag.
Add in the 16GB on-board memory, and a comfortable grip made to mimic a natural wrist position, and it's a win all around. The Samsung SMX-C24 would be great for beginning geeks who want to start recording video, moms who want to document their kids' sporting events, and anyone who just wants something simple to capture memories. No prices or release date yet, but you can look for the C24 to land in two colors — red and blue.
The Playsport boasts a two-inch color LCD display and allows you to upload your videos (or stills) right to YouTube or Facebook with its built in USB and software. Sounds familiar, right? The only difference between this and other mini HD camcorders is that this baby can record in up to 10 feet of water. That's right, water. The Playsport comes in three colors (abyss black, wave crash blue, and rush purple), is compatible with both Macs and PCs, and will hit shelves in April for $150.
I love a good mixed tape, which is why I love all these retro-inspired goodies that resemble the 80's icon. Who didn't love receiving a good mixed tape from a friend, or even better, a crush? I thought so. Check out some of my favorite mixed tape items right here in this slideshow!
The 120 min MinoHD is currently only available in brushed metal, but after Nov. 9, you'll be able to personalize your new Mino with an image of your own or one from The Flip's design gallery.
Well Samsung has just announced their new HMX-U10 compact camcorder and it's already gaining attention from Flip fans. With its high def capturing functionality, the ability to take 10 megapixel stills, and a built-in video editing application, the U10 has everything you could want in a pocket cam.
Other notable features include a 2-inch LCD display and a one-touch option for uploading videos to YouTube. . . although no word of included fancy schmancy video editing software.
These cameras are making their way to the UK in September, so I'm assuming they'll be stateside by Christmas. Rumored pricing is said to be around $200 each.
