Just got it today and am figuring out what it can do...

Anyone else use one and have some tips?

the Mrs has a Flip Mino. Really a cool little device, perfect for her. I have my G9 and Optio for movies...

The flip is fun for general stuff - like the eldest son and his Christmas morning new yoyo:

This one was edited in the flipshare software... I'm the fat one on the orange K2 bike :)... the trails are about a mile from the house...:

I don't have a Flip, I have a Kodak Playsport (http://www.amazon.com/Kodak-PlaySport-Waterproof-Pocket-Camera/dp/B0030MITDK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1274113413&sr=8-1) - same animal, different species.

I made a hat tripod for it.
I just drilled a hole in the center (toward the back) of the brim of a cap, inserted a size appropriate bolt from the bottom and tightened up with the corresponding nut.

The Playsport goes up to 1080p, but this video was shot on the lowest VGA setting:

It's a little awkward to wear at first, but after a while you don't notice it (although others might point and stare :lol: )
