I’m glad I didn’t get a Mino, introducing the SlideHD camcorder

the SlideHD Camcorder

The Flip Video brand released the SlideHD this morning. The Slide is a new shoot-and-show pocket camcorder that features a 3-inch-wide touchscreen. They call this the share mechanism because it is easier to huddle around and present to spectators, it’s kinda like a mini theater…or an iphone. The video aspects are great; the Slide has a f/2.4 lens which is fast for a 300 dollar camera, it can record up to four hours of HD video, a touch sensitive slide strip for scrolling through your data and a built in rechargeable lithium battery…I want one.
