Taking personal videos

I was looking for a gadget were in I could easily capture videos and at the same time I could upload it on my computer to share it but it will not cost me $200 or Php 10,0000. I know that camcorders or video cameras are expensive and I cannot afford them. Also they are bulky and I cannot bring it where ever I go. So I did a bit of researching on the Internet and here is what I have found out.

The Flip Video Ultra with it's pure digital upgraded design, video quality, viewing LCD, and software of its lightweight video camera that makes it very easy to capture and share low-resolution video via e-mail and the web; Also that there's now one-touch video uploading to YouTube and AOL Video and that the Ultra is compatible with Macs. Price range is $115.47 to $149.99 or it cost about Php 4,965 to 6,449 (dollar rate at Php 43). Isn't it amazing?

However, No SD/MMC card expansion slot, don't expect video quality to match that of a MiniDV camcorder's. The Muvee editing features only work with PCs, not Macs. But the bottom line here is with improved video quality, a slightly trimmer design, and upgraded software package, the Flip Video Ultra is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the emerging low-end digital camcorder category.

Here is the Specifications:
