Flip MinoHD 40% off


The market for Flip cameras, those handy little devices that record video and plug right into your computer for downloading, is heating up.

Amazon has knocked the price of the Flip MinoHD camcorder

from $199 to $120 -- a 40% discount -- and $39 less than the price Tuesday. The deal is part of a one day Gold Box discount, so it won't last.

I have a Mino 2GB flip camera and it is a lot of fun to use. It doesn't make the highest quality video, but is perfect for YouTube or Facebook. That makes it a great gift for teens.

The Flip camera has built-in editing software and I can vouch for the simplicity of the controls. I figured it out without even reading the manual. The model Amazon has marked down has 60 minutes of recording time.
