Flip and Slide: Flip SlideHD Camcorder

Techstination feature for Monday, April 26, 2010

A new Flip camcorder designed for playback. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Cisco's line of pocket sized Flip camcorders is growing again. The new Flip SlideHD adds a three inch touch screen that slides up on an angle...for viewing. Consumer products marketing director Jodi Lipe says also the capacity....

"Currently in the market we have the one hour and two hour high def cameras. Both the Mino and Ultra are available in one hour and two hour record time. The SlideHD allows for four hours of record time or up to twelve hours of storage."

Ease of use has always been the strongest selling point of the Flip cameras....and the SlideHD continues that tradition....although now the big red record button is on a touch screen. The added features come at a price. The SlideHD lists for about 280 dollars. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin
