Want to email a video to grandma and grandpa? No problem! Like all Flip models, the SlideHD is pre-loaded with the proprietary FlipShare software that allows consumers to easily organize, create and share their videos. Using a PC or Mac, Flip video content can be instantly uploaded, both privately and publicly, and is instantly ready for one-click sharing. From social media sites such as Facebook, MySpace and YouTube, to email, mobile devices, Flip Channels, and the TV, FlipShare is the easiest solution for consumers who want to share their videos.
The unique nature of the Flip SlideHD is that it allows users to use touch screen technology to record and navigate through the on screen menus. There is also a manual control (not on the screen) that is that allows you to navigate through the menu with touch.
I love this feature! When you visit the Flip Video website, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from thousands of designs from artists, leading design firms, celebrities, and iconic brands, or easily upload your own image to create a one-of-a-kind camcorder. How cool is that?
We have been using the Flip Slide HD for a few weeks now and I think it’s nearly impossible to beat how user friendly this unit is. Simply turn it on, press one button and your instantly recording! The amazing feature of the Flip SlideHD is that once your done shooting your video, you can simply flip up the 3-inch widescreen and share your video instantly! We found this feature to be rather lovely when it came time to entertain the kids for a few moments!
The touch screen was a little less impressive and although it worked fine to navigate through the menu’s, at times I found that we had to press rather hard or multiple times for it to respond. However, I will say that the touch screen record button worked fabulos! There is a bar located under the flip up screen that you can also use to navigate through the menus, rather than using the touch screen, and I find myself using that more often. The quality of the videos are truly amazing and I have a tendency to reach for this camcorder first because of it’s ease of use.
I also love the convenience that Flip camcorders offer. I can grab it, throw it in my person and be on my way. I don’t have to worry about loading my camcorder into a bag and toting along with us when we head out for vacation or a school play. Overall, we absolutely LOVE the Flip Slide HD and we think you will too!
SlideHD retails for $279.99 and can be purchased at major retailers, online retailers and at the Flip store .
