Easy off

So you’ve just spent the past 5 minutes pointing your Flip at a friend who swears he can jump 12 vintage Ford pickup trucks with the aid of his skateboard and a homemade rocket pack. Finally, in an unanticipated moment of clarity, he chickens out and tells you to turn off the camera. Now you’ve got 5 minutes of him hemming and hawing and you calling him a wuss. YouTube viewers are pretty forgiving, but not that forgiving.

If you were using a full-size tape-based camcorder, imagine trying to delete that bit of video to free up some room on the tape—completely possible, but also a complete pain in the neck. With a Flip you can just press Play/Pause, locate the clip, and press the Delete button to delete the clip. Then you can go back to calling your friend a wuss as well as a chicken. With luck, he’ll succumb to the peer pressure, and you’ll have something memorable to shoot (and, possibly, something to show to his parents when they ask him, “What happened to your teeth?!”).
