I love my Flip Video Recorder. It takes up to an hour of good quality footage. What has amazed me since I got it is the number of clips that fit in to that hour. Once my camera is full, I order the video from their website. You can also burn them yourself but it's $20 every few months and it's formatted semi-professionally with a cover etc. I just received our second video today and it had 96 videos on it. 96!!! I am finding myself catching many more of the everyday happenings in our family. Stuff that I would not pull out my Sony Handicam for. MJ's first ride on a tricycle, Molly's first coos, RJ playing a silly game with MeMaw. I think (and hope) these mundane events will be so much more meaningful in the future for Bobby, myself and the kids.
