Please note -TechSoup Canada is no longer offering the Flip Donation programFlip Video Cameras are small, handheld cameras that take up to 1 hour of HD video. They're nice and simple so anyone can use them without much training (the most important skill is being able to push a button!).
That's great - but what could you do with a flip video camera? The advantage with Flip Cameras is that they are small, convenient and portable. You could use them for many things - for example to:
- record an event,
- interview staff, volunteers or clients,
- show your programs in action, or
- shoot footage for a video you are making.
(See other ideas for free to low-cost videos).
Since you get six, you can give one to your ED, your communications staff, your volunteers - anyone who might run across interesting things to video in the course of their work. Here's an example of a video that People for Education made about their upcoming conference - shot using a Flip Video Camera and edited in iMovie:
People for Education is also planning to use Flip Video cameras at their upcoming conference, so volunteer videographers can capture the event.
