Flip Video Introduces Next Generation Flip MinoHD To Canada

Slim and Sleek Camcorder Delivers New Design, Double the Memory and Larger Screen

TORONTO, June 30 /CNW/ - The maker of the acclaimed Flip Video(TM) family of camcorders today announced the second generation of its popular Flip MinoHD(TM) line. The premium Flip MinoHD offers consumers an easy and stylish way to capture and share high-definition (HD) video with a sleek new design, up to two hours of recording time, and a large high-resolution screen. Also included is FlipShare(TM) software which offers consumers direct video uploads to YouTube(TM) and MySpace along with editing and organizing tools.

"The original Flip MinoHD has been a hit with the social networking generation because it delivers the perfect combination of sleek design, ease of use, and great video quality," said Jonathan Kaplan, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco's Consumer Products. "Our second generation Flip MinoHD lets users shoot twice as much video, enjoy a bigger screen, and even upload videos directly to popular social media sites with the included FlipShare software."

The all-new Flip MinoHD camcorder offers a stylish new look with brushed metal finish. True to its heritage, the new MinoHD can be personalized with one of thousands of designs or can be custom designed by the user at www.theflip.com. The sleek device now has a slightly rounder design, responsive touch-sensitive buttons, and a durable brushed metal finish. Along with great new looks, the second generation Flip MinoHD includes double the memory for up to two hours of recording capacity, a bright two-inch transflective screen for no-glare viewing even in direct sunlight, and an HDMI jack for direct input to HD televisions with an HDMI cable. The new Flip MinoHD is priced at $239, while the original Flip MinoHD - with one hour of recording time - is priced at $209. The Flip MinoHD with 2 hours recording time is scheduled to be available in select retail stores mid July while orders at theflip.com have begun today.
