I’ve now had a little pocket ‘Flip’ video camera for about a year now. It really is a great tool. The controls are simple, the quality is fine and it has a built in USB connector so you plug straight in to a PC to upload your movies.
I’ve experimented a lot with it – using it with students to let them record each other – often on location in the countryside during map reading exercises. I’ve also had a year of reportage – using it to document my travels around Europe – and I even took some footage in Korea which ended up as part of a broadcast on Korean TV!
Having inflicted these home movies on my family for a year my youngest daughter decided to take her revenge. She created a video montage of some of the most embarrassing bits and posted it to the world.
I take the joke in good heart – but I have to say she has combined her editing skills with an eye for the humorously absurd (with a father like hers she has witnessed plenty of this!)

I am sure she is available for similar commissions – but I will be expecting a 15% cut!
