Excerpt: I have been a fan of Pure Digital's Flip Video camera ever since I took a look at one last year. I liked the small form factor, the video quality for the price, and the battery life. It is an ideal video camera for those moments when you don't want or need to pull out the more traditional video camera. In fact it is so minuscule that you can take it virtually everywhere you want to go and shoot very good video.
