flip-video-ultra-camcorder-series-1I’ve been writing posts discussing various mini-camcorders, which I guess the new term is ‘Shoot and Share’ camcorders. These are my favorite since they are so easy to use and pushing videos up on the web is a snap. They are fantastic for video blogging (vlogging) and being so compact, you could always have one on you.

I’ve been waiting for a good listing of the popular brands and models, and finally I came across a great list broken down by bestseller and brands at Amazon. Please check out the Shoot and Share with an Easy-To-Use Camcorder page.

The Flip series cameras seem to be the bestsellers for sure, but there were a few other brands making that list as well. They are currently breaking down brands with the following manufacturers: Flip Video, Kodak, Samsung, Sony as well as other brands.

The other great thing I found was a very comprehensive learning guide about shoot and share video. If you have any questions about resolution, storage, software, etc., this might be a great place to start. Please check out the Shoot & Share Video Learning Guide at Amazon!

I asked a few people what the best camera for video blogging or vlogging. There were a mix of opinions from mini-camcorders to web cams. The Apple iSight was mentioned a few time as the best web cam you can buy, so I thought I would pull up some information on this great web cam.

You can pre-order Creative Labs Vado HD cameras at Amazon! These cameras are pretty sweet. They fall in the line of mini-camcorder with HD capability. They shoot 720p HD and you can purchase the 4 or 8 GB version.

Here is the official description of the cameras:

Catch the perfect snowboarding stunt, your baby’s first steps or your kid’s graduation, share it online and save it for a lifetime with Creative’s Vado HD Pocket Video Cam. The thin, lightweight Vado HD is small enough to fit easily in a pocket, purse or the palm of your hand, and it captures video in 720P high-definition quality with just the touch of a button. Sharing videos online is simple with built-in software that helps you post videos to YouTube, Photobucket or Box.net. The Vado HD is the only pocket video cam to feature true HDMI connectivity and an included HDMI cable for a superior viewing experience on an HDTV. Take the Vado HD Pocket Video Cam with you everywhere you go and never miss a moment. Product specs include 720p high-definition video, wide-angle glass lens, 2x digital zoom, 4GB of video storage capacity, up to one hours of recording and playback per charge, up to four hours of recording time at 640×480 at 30 frames per second, HDMI and RCA connections for TV, HDMI cable included, A/V cable sold separately, removable and rechargeable lithium battery, Vado Central software for simple video editing and sharing.

Today, I wanted to talk about a great piece of software that use on a regular basis. It’s called AVS Video Converter. Here we have a extremely easy piece of software that allows you to convert video formats from one to another. Beyond changing formats, it can easily compress your videos (if needed) and can capture various screen snaps.

I started using this when I when I needed to convert videos to Flash and grab screen captures for another web site.  It is extremely easy to use. Basically pick the ‘source’ file, then select the the type of file you’d like to convert it to, select the compression (it uses download speed as a gauge) and click convert. It cranks for a while and then drops a newly converted file next to your original file (it automatically renames it).

I like software that just ‘works’, and is not full of options and features. This does a great job. If you’re needing to convert various video files in your camcorder projects, I highly recommend AVS Video Converter!

AVS4You.com who makes AVS Video Converter also have other great tools as well:

AVS Video Converter
AVS Video Editor
AVS Video ReMaker
AVS DVD Authoring
AVS DVD Copy
AVS Video Recorder
AVS Media Player
AVS YouTube Uploader

I was glad to see the Sanyo Xacti VPC-E2 digital camcorder. I personally like mini-camcorders, and this was one that I haven’t had a chance to write about yet. It does not shoot HD video, but records at full 640×480 resultion at 60 files per second. The one great feature that stands out to me, is that it’s waterproof! So in a way, it’s similar to a POV camcorder where you can take it anywhere, but it’s not a true POV since you can mount it (well.. you probably could if you wanted to). This camcorder is also a 8MP digital camera as well, which is conveninent.

Currently at Amazon, they’re offering this camera for $169.99 (down from $199.99) which saves you 15% on this purchase. This is limited to the blue camera only.

I’ve been writing a few articles about POV (Point of View) cameras. These types of cameras are extremely fun and innovative for unique video content. But when I see 50% off on anything, I have to get excited. Here we have the ATC2K waterproof action cam. It normally is $99.99 dollars, but you can get it currently at Amazon for only $49.99! That is a deal!
