I went to Costco on December 24th to buy some groceries to make dinner for Christmas. While there I saw a Flip Cam and decided to purchase one. Flip Cams have gain popularity the last few years because they are easy to upload videos using the USB ports and is relatively cheap between $100 to $250. This is a Flip Video Ultra HD Camera with 8GB of memory, which can record about 2 hours of video and cost about $170 and is the exact model below. I thought it would be great to use this to make some videos for vitural tours of my listings and also some videos for my websites.
My Canon camera have a video function which records pretty decent video but is not as convenient as the Flip Cams in downloading to the computer or uploading to video sharing sites like YouTube or Facebook. Just the time-saving and convenience factor, I believe after using it about 4 times within 2 months would give me the full return on investment. I am planning to spend about an hour a day, 3 days a week within the next 2 weeks to learn more about the flip cams and do some videos and get back with any tips or issues. So far I only used it once about a month ago at a real estate home fair to capture a few short videos of each booths and the video quality were good.
