The Flip SlideHD allows me to easily take quality videos whenever I want. Cisco is the company that created The Flip. Their website states that this is their 25th year of business and they are the worldwide leader in networking that transforms how people connect, communicate and collaborate.

I have a Flip Mino that I use a good bit, but it doesn't have as many features. Here is a picture of the two side by side. As you can see, the Flip SlideHD is a little larger and is heavier. I hate that it is larger because space is limited in my diaper bag, but the slide feature is the reason that it can't be as small.
All of the options are on the touch screen. There are no buttons to push, just a screen. How cool is that?!?
I love the slide feature. You can record any moment and then watch it over and over again on the 3-inch widescreen. Evan loves having me take videos of him being silly and then we will place it on the table and watch it.
If you slide your finger across the black strip on the bottom, you can quickly scroll through the videos that you've taken. As you see, they even have the date that they were taken and the length of the video displayed above each one. Once you find what you want, simply touch the video and it will start playing. The video will take up the whole screen when it starts playing.
To charge or get the videos off of The Flip SlideHD, simply push the button to expose the USB connector. Plug it into your computer and you're all set. You don't have to worry about cords or anything else when trying to charge it-you just need a computer.
Here are a few videos so that you can experience the quality. This first one was taken outside so it was sunny. The quality is definitely more clear and crisp on the videos that I download. The ones that I load into youtube don't seem to look as clear for some reason.
This one was taken in a restaurant so it was somewhat dark(I was feeding Isabella a lemon).
We have had so much fun with The Flip SlideHD. I have been able to take great quality videos without lugging around a huge camcorder. My friends and family have all been wowed by watching the videos that we take during different occasions on the larger widescreen. Who doesn't get a kick out of watching themselves on video?
Two of my aunts live out of town and love seeing more videos of our kids. The Flip SlideHD makes it more convenient for me to remember to capture every occasion. One day we'll be able to look back at these videos and relive everything.
