Capture Family Travel Memories with the Flip Ultra HD {Giveaway}

There’s no doubt that The Flip Ultra HD is one of the most user friendly digital video cameras. It also set the bar for competing companies to produce products. Sadly, The Flip is no longer being produced and is becoming harder and harder to find in stores. In the Research and Development Department, we’re always getting delivery of products for review and testing, including a variety of small and compact video cameras.

My first compact digital camera was The Flip, and for a beginner, it was so easy to use, even a preschooler could record a movie. It was sturdy, surviving a few drops on the ground, and still kept on working. Then The Flip Mino came on the market, and while it was a good product, I still liked the original Flip best.

This digital video camera is a classic for family travelers looking to capture their memories on video. It connects easily to any computer via the internal USB arm that swings out for connection. The software is already on the camera and the video can be edited and uploaded to YouTube or your favorite video sharing site easily.

Since we have an extra, brand new Flip Ultra HD, we thought we’d offer this for one reader to capture their next trip or family memory on video.

I asked her if she could plan a trip where would she go? After 65 years of doing what she was told and not really given choices, it took her a bit but in the end we went to The Grand Ole Opry and then drove over to Graceland.

After a two-hour hike in mud up to our knees, in the jungle with lots of scary insects and prickly branches, we arrived in paradise. It was just us, my partner (aka Frenchie) and I, and the blue ocean with palm trees standing tall on the beach and the backdrop of the green jungle. At night, we slept in hammocks perched high enough that I thought I could actually reach the stars. And we weren’t even on a honeymoon, but it sure felt like one.

Before we could even get out of Ontario, the awning ripped off the trailer while we were on the road. A lady and her husband carried it back to us.

It might not have been too funny at the time, but it has turned out to be the best and most funniest memory of travelling with my family 🙂

  152. I think my favorite trip was taking my kids to Sea World in April. What a great place to visit. Had a nice time and would love to revisit soon!

  153. My favorite trip was a trip to South Carolina to see my son graduate from basic training, my other son came with us and that was the last trip we all had together. We had a great family time. nupa123atgmaildotcom

  157. My favourite trip was travelling to Nigeria to meet my inlaws. Nigeria is a beautiful place and it made the day and a half of travel well worth it. How I miss you Nigeria and long to return soon 🙂

  158. I am on vacation now! I love visiting the retro hotels in warm, sunny Daytona Beach, FL! We found a great condo deal and always drive to our destinations!

  160. I would love to travel to the Caribbean. The white sand beaches and crystal, clear water would be a wonderful site.

  162. My favorite trip was to Vancouver B.C. with my wife and sons. Of course we did all the tourist stuff and had a ton of fun…but when we went whale watching that was fantastic, what a sight to behold.

  163. My favorite trip was to the beach with my family.
    It was my kids first time seeing the ocean so there were lots of great pictures.
    This video camera would have been perfect for capturing the look on their faces and the excitement in their voices.


  164. I have not been on to many trips, I think my favorite trip is going to be the one I take in a few days, and that is to move back to where my family is, I will be taking it with my husband and daughter. I am excited, and scared all at once.

  165. me and my family went to daytona beach and universal studios this summer

  166. My favorite family trip took place when I was fourteen. It was a roadtrip with my mother, brother, aunt, grandfather and my aunt’s cocker spaniel. We spent a week happily sightseeing, booking last minute rooms at hotels/inns, and sampling the local foods along the way. Great fun!

  170. my husband travels so much for work and so this summer we (2kids and dog)joined him so we could spend more time with one another. we traveled to many familiar cities(Atlanta, Dallas, New Orleans)that we expected to have enjoyable experiences , but the biggest surprise of our travel destinations was our 3 week stay in Baton Rouge. i’m convinced baton rouge is the birthplace of hospitality! the experience left such an impact on our family, that it’s the big joke around our home that i’m already making plans to send our daughter to LSU! the FLIP Cam would have been perfect to VLOG our summer experience.

  171. I have been to , canada, michigan, chicago, tennesse, north carolina, georgia, virginia, but I must say my best trips are to disney with my husband and 3 kids, nothing beats a smile mickey can make!

  205. My husband and I had recently gone to Arkansas for my daughters wedding. One of the most awesome part of the trip was being there to give her away and to see my family to which I hadnt seen in over 5 yrs. The worse part was we hit a deer along our way to the wedding, totaled the car (no injuries) and still make it to the wedding. 🙂

  211. My favorite trip was a road trip with 3 girlfriends, through Nashville, Mississippi, and Louisiana!

  212. My favorite trip was to Puerto Rico a few years ago.It was special because it was the last time that I would see my grandfather before he became ill and eventually passed.As an adult I still felt like a child around him because of all of my memories of the times that we spent together.It was hot,sticky,and uncomfortable in my grandmother’s home but I wouldn’t have traded that trip for any 5 star vacation in any other part of the world.

  213. My favorite trip was with our two children when they were younger to Florida for the Daytona 500. My husband and I and the kids took 2 weeks, travelled in our RV to Daytona, parked a Volusia Speedway during Speed Week; watched races there at night and went to Disney World, Marineland and just about any other attraction we could find.

  229. My favorite trip was a trip my husband and I took to Maui. We had a friend there whose father owned a bed and breakfast type place and we were able to stay there at a deeply discounted rate. We watched the sunrise 10,000 feet above sea level, went snorkeling, had a spa treatment, went to a street party, visited the national parks, walked to a waterfall, and enjoyed the darkness at night as there is very little outdoor lighting on the island.

  234. A few years ago I went to the island of Samoa. It was a long plane ride, but it was worth it. I stayed right on the beach at a place called Coconuts. If you just want to relax, then this is the way to do it, great weather, clear warm ocean, a nice pool too. What’s better than delicious drinks & food in a tropical beach paradise setting?

  237. My favorite trip was in 2010, when we were finally able to take all of our children on an 8 day trip to the Virgin Islands. We’re a combined family, so accomplishing this trip took us a few years, but was so worth the wait!

  238. For our 30th anniversary, my husband and I stumbled upon an actually-affordable 30 day cruise. Our travel agent said it was the best deal she had ever seen! Thus, we flew to Sydney (using our airline miles, we paid an astounding 90 bucks for both fares) , spent a few days there, then hopped a cruise ship for (get this!) New Zealand, Fiji, 2 Samoas, Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, 2 Hawaiian Islands, then back to Los Angeles, where we spent Thanksgiving with my cousin (another week gone!) before returning to a cold, snowy Ohio. The best!

  245. My all-time favorite vacation was a trip to Gatlinburg. My boyfriend had just got back from a year long deployment to Iraq and he took me to Gatlinburg for our first Christmas together. We stayed in a cabin on top of the mountain. We’ve now been married for 2 years 🙂

The kids and I traveled from South Carolina to California where we met up with my mother-in-law, 2 nephews, 1 neice, and my sister-in-law. It was great to see all the kids together and to spend the time making memories with our family.

    Thanks for the contest.

  266. In 1987, I wanted to go to the very first Star Wars convention sanctioned by Lucasfilm. It was cheaper to drive than to fly, so my mom came along and we took three weeks to get to L.A. and back to Florida. We went into Mexico for the day; visited the Alamo, Saguaro National Park and the Grand Canyon; spent a night in Vegas; crossed the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona; and just had a blast. The convention was great, too. I’d love to take that trip again with my husband and teach him that getting there can be 3/4 of the fun.
