We have both Kodak and Flip hand held video cameras availalbe for
checkout. The Flips are older 4:3 aspect ratio cameras that record
on internal flash memory. The Kodaks are 16:9 cameras that record
on an SD card, but a couple of the Kodak models have built-in USB arms
like the Flip, other models require the use of a USB cable.
Tripods are also available for checkout. The image stabilization
on these cameras is not great, so consider using a tripod for any
Kodak models available

We have 12 of the Flip Mino and 5 Flip Ultras avaialable for checkout.
These models will record up to an hour of video. The Mino battery

Flip software runs on both PC and Mac and records in various formats,
depending on how the data is transferred.
The Flip video camera is an easy-to-use, low-end video camera
with all required software pre-installed on it. A simple setup
program will install the software on the client computer the first time
it is used and update, if necessary, through an Internet connection.
