Flip video and the All-Alaskan Racing Pigs

A quick trip to Walmart and we became the happy owners of a Flip video camera.
They have so many positive features, perhaps the best is the Flip out USB connector on the side so it doesn't need cables to download. It has a great built in microphone and records well in low light. It will not replace my Sony for television quality video though.
The first outing we took the Flip on was to the Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton. We had another first time experience while we were there and now you can enjoy it too...

And I have just been told about another tiny camera that folk at NECC08 are using. The AIPTEK. It is slightly more expensive, but it films in HD. Worth looking out for.


  1. I have been trying to get my hands on a Flip video for the last month or so.

    There was even one on Trade Me that Suzie V and I were bidding on but I got out bid by a random on the day Mum passed away.

  2. @allanahk They seem to be coming down in price here. Do you want to come to an arrangement ;) Email me if so...

  3. Pleased you are learning heaps to bring back and share and having a great time in the process. Loved this clip - it certainly puts a new twist on Max's flying pigs!

  4. Hi Mrs Burt,
    We liked your movie. The pigs were fast. We hope you have a lovely time in America.

    Love Room 10
