Video taken of my plane in low light, dusk, setting.
And IMO did extremely well considering the end of a day, and not being very bright out side. I and my son just LOVE this camera. Too heavy to put in my plane though :(

Video 2
This one was taken with my plane, around 12~. I have to say in the short time I have owned this cameras, and I have owned a LOT of other flash video camera, Sanyo, Samsung, and others, that this one is by far my Favorite. For what I paid, and they are still asking for, I cant see why anyone would pay $50-$150 more to have a HD Flip, or other camera. The sound is pick up is outstanding as well as the picture, EVEN IF YOU USE THE DIGITAL ZOOM, it stays clear and vivid. This one I am going to keep for a good while, and you'd be a fool not to buy this one vs any other. No I may not of had a $400 flash video camera, but this one is under 1 bill, so I dont need to buy anything else, right now. Its good even under low light, it gets a little grainy but it still looks great, only fault I can even say about it is the little 2x digital zoom, thats it, and we been using the piss out of it so far,

HD video shot with said camera.
there are a lot more on youtube to see. The audio, and video of this thing is very impressive, and at almost half more the cost I paid for a cheap spy pen camera at dx. Should prove to be very interesting the footage I will be able to shoot with this camera vs my spy pen, so needless to say, Im very excited about getting this camera myself and what I will be able to capture with it.

After seeing some of the footage of this device at youtube, my wife gave me the go ahead and get it to put in my rc stuff to get and capture grat footage when I drive or fly my stuff.

Cant wait to make great looking flying videos.

I know, which is one of the reason I begged with my wife to put it on PP credit before it goes back up to regular price, and the fact when I last crashed my plane the shock took out my spy pen camera with it, footage of the crash in my sig.

Glad I got mine ordered last night then :)
But still a great price for a decent HD (720P) flash video camera. I have a Samsung MX10 I paid $200+ for beginning of the year, and it doesnt shoot in ws or hd, so Im still happy with the price and what I have seen of it so far.

Since it is no longer a "special" buy, coupon FREESHIP should work with it then
That alone should be about what I had paid with shipping.

Buy it from Geeks, but it from Amazon it wont matter in the end because:


List Price: $199.95
Price: $69.99
You Save: $129.96 (65%)
In Stock.
Ships from and sold by Computer Geeks.

And when did geeks take a dive into the crap venders? I been buying from them for years and have never had a problem, so your reply makes no since that just because you wouldnt buy there, or heard of them it would be bad to buy from them

Which I get thats really funny, is how you warn people not to buy from Geeks.com, throw up a amazon link, and it coming from Geeks anyway at more more money and NO free Shipping.,

Its cheaper at geeks, use the promo code and get free shipping as well.

My mistake, didn't notice that it was coming from the same place.

Aside from the free shipping at Geeks vs. Amazon, however, your reply makes just as little sense* - "I've been buying from Amazon for years", "Well, I've been buying from Geeks for years!" - see how silly that is?

I've got nothing against Geeks.com - I was just pointing out what looked like a very feasible alternative, considering how heavily used Amazon is. People may have gift cards/credit for it, people might want to use their Amazon credit cards, etc...

Well I got my camera today, and all I gots to say is, awesome!

There may not be that much in the way of menu features and set up, its pretty well set right out of the box.

Ive never tried a flip camera before, but for $60~I couldnt be more happy then what has showed up. The mic on it kicks ass, everyone and everything is clear as a bell, I am looking forward into seeing how this works out when taking onboard video in the plane or in one of my cars. Feels sturdy, and if it was not for the heavy batteries it wouldnt weigh all that much,. It weighs in a 1/4 lb with batteries and without, the camea and batteries each weigh in a 1/8th of a lb, so not heavy enough in your hard to wannt to put it down. Mu only concern I have is I think it may be over the weight my plane will handle and take off with. But for sure in the cars it will go, or outside shots of the cars going.

All in alll, I have to say considering this is my 2hd camera, my other being a Panasonic TZ5 that recorded in 1280x720, that for the price, Its a steal, which I had more money, Id buy 2 more of them.

I honestly cannot see people not liking this camera, its small, its light, and the mic pick up noises and sound NATURALLY as they are spoken, and you dont have to be right up in their face to pick them up. I was walking through my kitchen and it picked up my wife and oldest going at it in the background.

OH and the day I stuck this up was the day I ordered mine, took 3 days to get to me, and thats not bad either.

Go geeks!

I went to my local Wal-Mart and for 4 days they had these for $40.
I went ahead and bought 4 bundles. The camera is a steal for price and quality.

Thanks OP

Mine had them for $70.

They are great if you dont need bells and whistles, just a turn on and shoot, they are beautiful for, to capture those moments. I been using mine mostly for Youtube videos and its great I can shoot in HD, and replays in HD on youtube, and it doesnt make huge files shooting either. A 8-10 shot is around 400mb. Its been perfect for what I wanted it for, only downside for me is it will not make it on my plane, too damn heavy :(
