What’s great about the latest model of the Pure Digital’s pocket video cameras isn’t what they can do today—this latest “Flip Video Ultra” can shoot up to an hour of video on its 2GB of internal flash memory—but what they’ll be able to do in a year or two when they’ll be in the discount bin: still take decent video with a device that you don’t mind losing.
In the meantime, if you’ve got $180 to spend on a camera, get one that takes miniDV tapes. It might be larger, but the quality will be better; failing that, you’ll be able to record for more than an hour at a time. It likely will not be pink and white, mind you.
