Here we go again


From Rosemary Graham on May 10, 2010 :: 7:08 pm

I would use it for family events!


From Ron Causey on May 11, 2010 :: 1:55 am

I really need this camera because I would like to get into doing videos and photo editting because I have always enjoyed it but it is so expensive for me. I would use this great camera to film my trip to Peru and my trip through all of Europe. I know it seems weird that I can’t afford this camera but can afford the trip but I am only spending a little bit of money on the trip because we are going to all put money together. I don’t have any extra money and it is hard enough to get money for this trip. I would also like to finally have a nice camera so that I can have my wedding filmed. I will be visiting many historic areas in Europe and I want to share it with everybody and document those areas how they were before and how they are today. This would mean so much to me to have this camera. I also would like for my family to be able to see my fiance and I because I work so hard to see her and I am only 19. She lives in Peru. I work full time and I also study and college can also be very consuming on time and money. The places I will visit are Chernobyl because I will get a pass into the exclusion zone and Auschwitz, I am facinated with history and would love for others who aren’t as lucky to experience to see those areas today and others who are interested to learn from my experiences. Good luck to you all and I hope I can be considered.

Wow, That would be awesome!
I have many things coming up this summer that I could use the Flip Slide HD on. To start off the amazing summer, my son is graduating. In mid July, as a graduation gift we are going to NYC for a week, then LA for a week as a family. To end the summer, we will take a road trip from our home in Minnesota, to his soon-to-be home at the College Campus at University of Michigan in Lansing. It would be so nice if we could get the last summer with our son on video. This would allow us to keep many awesome memories forever. in HD!
