I would take videos of as many beautiful attractions this country has to offer, like Yosemite, Sedona Red Rocks etc. as I drive across country to visit my family for the 1st time in a decade and give the videos to my nephews and nieces so they can see what this country has or maybe had at their point of being old enough to appreciate it.


From Marcella Cook on June 01, 2010 :: 9:23 am

I’m subscribed and I would use the camera to video my son and his father.  His father is in poor health because of complications from brain surgery related to service in Iraq. Though he’s slowly getting better!

I subscribe and I would record my 1 year old grand niece so that my father (her great grandpa) will be able to see her grow up!


From isabel on June 01, 2010 :: 9:58 am

I subscribed .  I would want the flip sideHD because I am a young adult that is going into her senior year.  I want to go to school for promotions and marketing and music management.  Having this awesome camcorder could help me capture so many moments during shows and other events that I couldn’t have done before.  Life is tough right now for my family with the economy so I can get all the goods such as a sweet camera or a nifty camcorder but winning this giveaway would really enhance my career with promotions and marketing just being a teen still in highschool.  thanks!

I will talk about it endlessly on FB, where I have 1577 friends.
I will love it.
It will have its own room.
It can have all its friends over for sleepovers.
I will treat it like my son.


From susitravl on June 01, 2010 :: 8:20 pm
