Flip Camera Quality

If you are old enough to remember the first video cameras, you'll know why the tiny, slim flip cameras are so amazing to me. Our first camcorder was a huge machine, sat on your shoulder, and you had to look through a tiny view finder to see what you were shooting at, or place it on a tripod. It also used clumsy VHS tapes. The little flip camera is small enough to hold in the palm of your hand, and you look at the screen on the back so you can shoot from any angle. It's also thousands of dollars cheaper than the first camcorders on the market. Even though most cell phones are about the same size, and many also take video clips, you can take much longer video on a flip camera than a cell phone, and the quality is usually a lot better.
