On first sight, the new Flip Video is no flop

Just got hold of the new Flip Video device: a handheld video camera, expected to retail for £75. First impressions are very good. It takes 60 minutes of video, runs on a pair of AA batteries and shoots richly coloured, high-contrast video. It’s incredibly intuitive to use and didn’t break when I accidentally dropped it on the floor. Here’s some footage of a seagull feeding frenzy, taken at Motcombe Park in Eastbourne yesterday.
