Oops. I crossposted the video above from the wonderful www.blip.tv , but then forgot to write the post which I wanted to accompany it. So apologies for the slightly... empty and pointless post!
So anyway, the actual point of the story is that the video above was the first that I've taken using my brand new toy...
...the very exciting Flip video camera.
And yes, it is very exciting, especially for a gadget nerd like me I. It's fantastically easy to use, requires no set-up or converters- you literally just plug it in to the USB and play or edit, no hassle. My year 9s were playing with it yesterday and it was so friendly that I didn't get a single question about it, they just got on with it.
So if you're thinking about geting a new videocamera for the department, I really recommend it. I personally can't wait for some moblogging...!!
