Flip Offering Customized Video Cameras

Oct 14th, 2008 | By | Category: Digital Video Recorder, Podcasting Hardware, Video

The makers of the Flip Video family of camcorders have announced a new personalization platform that lets you design a custom Flip Mino camcorder.

This new service, created in partnership with CafePress, also gives you the option to share designs with the community to earn commissions. 

“We created the Flip Mino to be a fun and simple way for people to share their stories with video. And now they can express themselves not only with the videos they record, but the camcorders they use,” said Pure Digital CEO, Jonathan Kaplan. “We see this as the new design frontier in personal electronics.”

Users can choose from thousands of designs from artists, leading design firms, celebrities, and iconic brands, or they can upload their own image to create a one-of-a-kind camcorder. CafePress users have the ability to design Flip Mino camcorders to sell on www.cafepress.com or www.theflip.com,

The Flip Mino features an internal rechargeable battery and 2GB of on-board flash memory for 60 minutes of video. The Flip Mino retails for $179.99. Flip camcorders are compatible with Windows software and Apple’s Mac video applications.

    Unfortunately Flip Mino is not shipped to Europe – and the one I bought in US during NME in Las Vegas I had to pass over to a Mac-user – it was not compatible with my Windows XP.

    Instead Ihave bought a Creative Vado – but the software does not include emailing or editing videos.

    The makers of the Flip Video really hit the spot making them customizable. My good luck drove me to http://www.cafepress.com/flipminohdcams where some of the greatest designs I’ve seen are available, highly recommended to everyone looking for a flip mino!
