Flip Video Camera? Or, RCA EZ201 Video Camera?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Realty Arts

I got all fired up about video, Flickr video, and video in general.

Jeff Turner, Bob Stewart, and Brad Andersohn put me over the top.

I pulled up the CNet review for the Flip and that led me to the RCA EZ201.

After a little more reading, I was at Amazon, and, of course, EBay.

I decided to look into the EZ201, based on the CNet review's mention of the rotating screen, and the tripod mount.  Also, I like the USB dongle that slides out.

And today I scored an RCA EZ201 on EBay.  Slightly used, but "Mint."  $64.88 to my door.  It seems that the EZ201 hasn't achieved the "hot" status of the Flip, but it is RCA's licensed use of the same design.  Cheaper for not being "hot?"  I'll work with it.

Now I'll be watching the mail every day until I get the new toy.  That should give me enough time to make a list of video projects.

Interviews come to mind.  Home tours.  Parks and other amenities.

Fired up....

Missy,

Not because I am a crazy flip supporter (I just want people doing video in general) but I have a tripod for my flip.........I heard that some of the first models didn't have the piece on the bottom to screw the tripod into, but the new ones do......

(really just coming back to remind about those bonus points I have for the first interview with a principal :-) )

Bob,

I spent enough time with principals in my academic career...

Ray,

LOL.  Keep them off-balance.

Mike, OK, I guess I have to get on the bandwagon. How much does the RCA cost if I don't want to do the eBay thing?

Bob, How about bonus points for just buying the Flip?

Great posts everybody. I personally am partial to the new Flip Video Ultra 60

 Plus:  Great sound, Great software, can edit, splice, add effects and music all in one simple step.

Minus, no rotating screen (I put a stand up mirror behind mine when I'm talking into it so I can see the screen!)  Would prefer expandable memory or swappable memory cards.

Sounds good I will have to look into the device.  I have seen a lot of media about them.

So, Mike, how about an update since you've probably gotten your new toy by now, right?  I'm anxious to hear (or see) about it!

Ryan,

I have picked it up a couple of times, but, for shame, so far the new toy is a paperweight.

Thanks for the reminder!

If I can get one for the same price you did - I'll snag one.  Did you see that they also have a one touch DVD burner dock for this camera?  That looks COOOOOLL!!!

Based on my experience with my company I've gone w/the flip since its the one that AR seems to be embracing.  I love it and my tripod.  Mixpo will be up and running on Monday.  The heat is on and not just summer heat!

Tracy,

The differences between the two cameras are minimal, as they use the same technology.  RCA just failed to put a cute name on theirs, and were 2nd to market, so they are less well known.  Either camera is a ton of fun!
