The Flip Ultra CameraRemember the days when home camcorders were the size of a television camera? InventHelp’s Invention Girl does; you could throw out your shoulder just trying to film a child’s birthday party!

With the soaring popularity of video-centric sites like YouTube, huge, heavy camcorders are just not practical. Not to mention, they’re very uncool (and you know InventHelp’s Invention Girl would NEVER be caught with anything uncool!).

Technology has come a long way since the first America’s Funniest Home Videos episodes aired!

The Flip Ultra is a pocket-sized digital camcorder, weighing just 5.5 ounces. Offered in 30- and 60-minute versions, it has an internal flash memory and a self-contained USB plug that slides out for use in a PC or MAC.

Built-in software allows you to edit your videos, add music, and send to friends.

This little camera is making a big impression, having appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, just to mention a few. Price ranges from $150-$180.
