Flip Video Flip MinoHD Premium (2nd Gen MinoHD) Announced Updated MinoHD Boasts 8GB Capacity, New FlipShare Software, Revised Styling

Flip Video have acted to cement their somewhat elevated position in the
pocket YouTube camcorder market with the introduction of the 2nd
Generation Flip MinoHD, or premium Flip MinoHD as they bill it, which
serves to build upon the phenomenal success of the 1st Gen Flip MinoHD
by offering increased onboard storage capacity as well as a cool,
brushed aluminium body " though, of course, you still have the option
of personalising it with an array of designs offered via the Flip
website should the brushed aluminium not quite do it for you.
On and above the increased 8GB capacity, which will see you good for up
to two hours of 720p HD video capture, the new 2nd Gen Flip MinoHD still
hasn t gained onboard image stabilisation but its does come with a 2
anti-glare 960 x 240 resolution screen and an upgraded version of the
FlipShare software suite allowing easy uploading to site such as
Facebook, YouTube and MySpace whilst debuting a feature called Magic
Movie which, according to Flip Video s press release automatically
trims and arranges a user's selected video content into their own movie .
The original Flip MinoHD has been a hit with the social networking
generation because it delivers the perfect combination of sleek design,
ease of use, and great video quality, said Jonathan Kaplan, senior vice
president and general manager of Cisco's Consumer Products (who own Flip
Video, incidentally). Our second generation Flip MinoHD lets users
shoot twice as much video, enjoy a bigger screen, and even share their
stories directly to Facebook with the latest version of FlipShare.
