    Default Suggestion for video camera and posting training video...

    Suggestion for a very simple video camera for filming and posting simple training clips? Suggestion for how/where to post?

    Thanks!

    I've been looking at video camera lately, not decided which one to get yet

    Camcorders - Independent Camcorder Reviews, Ratings & Comparisons has been quite helpful for reviews

    Tempted with either the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 or Flip UltraHD

    I have a Flip Mino and know many others with one, and have been happy with it for shooting training video's and some others. You can save money with the regular version versus the HD model. Flip Nimo sells for around $150.00. JMO.

    Flip HD - surprisingly great quality and i like the HD aspect ratio.
    easy to upload vids.
    the minute with mike vids on b2d were done with the flip
    as was the arthrokinetic reflex one (example here)
    now these are reduced to an nth of the original size on screen - really happy with the full screen size that is the way they upload to disk before being chopped down to blog size.

    simple and good quality.

    I wouldn't spend a lot of money on a camera unless you are trying to make commercial quality vids. Uploading is easy, and I recommend YouTube or Flickr to be an online repository for all your vids and/or pics. Both have easy ways to provide link or embed them into blogs.

    This way, when you post your new PRs, people will believe you.

    The Flip Mino absolutely rocks and the software it comes with is relatively useful for a quick upload.

    One idea people forget about is the iPhone. If you're in need of a phone upgrade anyway, the camera rocks. Shot this the other day:
