Pure Digital Technologies is the provider of innovative imaging solutions for the mass market, including the Flip Video family of digital camcorders.
The Flip Video camera is a simple digital camcorder designed especially for Internet video sharing. The camera contains on-board software enabling one-click uploads to YouTube, AOL Video, MySpace and other websites. The latest model, the Flip Ultra, has been the best-selling camcorder on Amazon.com since the day of its debut, capturing about 13% of the camcorder market.
It captures video in 640x480 resolution at 30 frames per second. It uses 2 AA batteries.
