The extremely portable line of Flip MinoHD cameras will be launching in the Middle East in a few months
Good news for YouTube content creators- Linksys is officially bringing their Flip range of portable cameras officially to the Middle East. At the DCC event, I was informed by their representatives that we will see the launch of their 8GB Flip Mino HD in September at a retail price of AED 799/- (US$220).
For those of you who don’t know about Flip, it’s a highly portable video camera with a built-in USB interface that plugs directly to your Mac or PC and allows you to upload your videos to places like YouTube. You do know have to deal with downloading videos to your PC, then converting and then uploading them. These devices make adding videos to the web extremely easy. We use it for recording interviews and events such as the following from the Linksys rep.
As you saw from the video above, the Flip MinoHD is an awesome device to carry with you for work or with kids. I have the slightly older model with 4GB and a lower sized screen but am sure looking forward to the official launch.
