New FLIP SlideHD Camera from Cisco

Posted by Joel
After tons of photos leaked on the net of the rumored FLIP SlideHD camera it's finally official. It looks a pretty cool gadget. It has a touchscreen and a widescreen. News features include image stabilization and a 1080p sensor with better low-light performance. With a price of $279, it has some mixed reviews. The Slide is basically a really chunky Mino HD when in camera mode -- you get the same buttons and the same interface, just implemented via touchscreen.

After reading some reviews, I was actually expecting a lot more. The Kodak Zi8 on the other hand has the external microphone jack, which I can find very useful. The Nikon S8000 offers 720p recording at up to ISO 3200, a 10x optical zoom lens, and a three-inch, 921,000-dot LCD that will absolutely crush the screen on the Slide.

For right now, I will wait and see what the competition has to offer... Hopefully Kodak will release its next generation of portable video cameras soon.
