One of my favorite gadgets, the Flip Video Ultra Series Camcorder, 30-Minutes (White) is on sale today at Amazon for less than $50.

This is the camera I use regularly to film my boys and other exciting happenings in my life. It's small enough to tuck into your pocket, so you'll always have it with you when fun breaks out. Here are a few of the technical specs:

  • Simple to use, pocket-sized camcorder with one-touch recording and digital zoom
  • Holds 30 minutes of full VGA-quality video on 1GB of built-in memory; no tapes or additional memory cards required
  • Convenient USB arm plugs directly into your computer for easy viewing and sharing
  • Built-in software lets you easily e-mail videos, upload to YouTube and AOL, and capture still photos from video
  • Watch videos instantly on TV with included cable
