The Fabulous Flip minoHD: A mummy blogger/vlogger review

This is indeed mummy’s new Flip camera. It looks and feels like a mobile phone and slides so neatly into my bag I can take it anywhere. Yippeee! I was given it earlier this year by those lovel y people from Flip at the John Lewis Christmas in July event. It is no secret I am a bit scared of technology ( we still use videos in ourhouse but hey they cost 50p from a car boot!) This gadget looked way to simple! It didnt have wires or plugs just one red button and 6 little thingys you could press. Hmmm. Was it being deceptive. 

As Frankie can testify this was one of my first attempts and apart form him v annoyingly moving the chair each time I tried to recording because it sounded rude (boys!) it all went a bit too well!

Here is the mini camcorders spec:
