Flip Video Mino 2GB
Advantages: Sleek, lightweight, very simple to use, inbuilt software, very reasonably priced
Disadvantages: Editing software very basic
I'm a bit of a ludite when it comes to gadgets, so wanted a very simple camcorder that I could slip into my handbag and which wasn't too pricey. I looked at some reviews, which were all very favourable, but the price swung it for me, as it was cheap enough not to be too distressing if it was relegated to the back of the cupboard. The Flip Mino has been an absolute gem. It's sleek, small (mobile phone size) and so simple to use. Pop the flick out connector (no bits to lose) into the USB drive of your computer - the software is preprogrammed and takes a couple of minutes to be recognised. The Flip has one red record button .....and thats it. Simples. (You can zoom in and out and replay/delete easily too). There is 60 minutes of recording time, which is ample and downloading the footage is a matter of popping it back into the USB drive. The editing software is a bit basic, you can fade clips together and add music, title and credits and save stills from the footage but thats about it.( A major feature is the ease of sharing clips on Facebook, but I've not used this). This is a fantastic first camcorder for the novice, very simple, compact and lightweight, the only downside is the amount of memory the films take up when storing them on your PC.
Summary: Fantastic starter camcorder for the novice
