FLIP camera advise please

by mjbmedia 8 replies
Hi I have one, taking it on Hols in Jan , just wondering if anyne knows of any device I can use to be able to offload the videos i take so the camera isnt full up.

Im not taking my laptop with me , will have minor access to some PC but as Im on a cruise I aint gonna take time out doing that side of it.
On the Flip site it says you can use other things to download the videos onto but wont say what and whether theyre any good so Im asking here please.
The camera has a USB arm on it but I dont know much tecchy things so not sure what i could use
thanks for any advice

    I'd wager you need stuff like these:

    Digital Camera Memory Cards

    I own a flip camera.My advice would be to bring either PC memory cards you can transfer your files to or cds/dvds that you can transfer them to.
    That's really about your only options.

        How well does the Flip work? Thinking about buying one.

          works well, easy to use and easy to download to PC with its own built in software allows you to edit etc.

          I recommend it for quick easy to shoot videos that need to look good but not super professional ie you tube etc

    You would need to use the limited PC access to do what I suggested.Sorry if I wasnt clear on that.
