Essential Gear For Your Band: Flip Mino HD


I am about to get really evangelical on you. The Flip Mino HD Camera is absolutely amazing and revolutionary! For between $150-$230 you can have a high quality camera with great picture and sound that is amazingly easy to use and transfer to iMovie in one click. What makes these cameras so revolutionary is they put an hour of HD video recording in your pocket to pull out anytime in an easy to use interface for very little money. In the past we have told you of the importance of taping your live shows to improve upon them, this enables this to be done instantly. Nevermind, the potential it brings for making video updates, YouTube uploads, behind the scenes studio footage and any other content your fans will enjoy. Record yourself rehearsing and look for bad habits like pulling strings or hitting the drums off center. Everyone from Wired on down to your local soccer mom is losing their mind over this thing, it is time you should be hip to it too!
