Today we received the Flip Video for PC from our Follett Library rep. We will be testing it for a week. Our 7th and 8th grade students create a daily news program and their equipment needs updating! We are trying to find money and inexpensive equipment.
The Flip Video is about 3 1/2 in. tall and 2 1/2 in. wide so it's very portable. It has built-in video mixing software but is compatible with imovie and Movie Maker. It runs on two AA batteries and has a built in hard drive. It also has a USB plug so you don't have to fiddle around trying to find the correct firewire to load the video on the computer. I just did a quick test video and will see how easy it is to transfer it to the computer.
