A number of new video cameras have emerged that are changing the way in which we use the Web. One of those cameras is the Flip - named for the flip-out USB connector.
The Flip has editing software built in. It allows you to take video and instantly plug in the USB to edit, store, share or upload to YouTube!
Here's an example of simply putting the camera down on a table and sitting down for a brief interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ny5uj-_0i8&feature=related
