It actually has 8 Gigs of solid-state storage built right in, and it's designed to always be able to upload your video, no matter where you are. In fact, it includes a USB port that flips right out from the side. That's actually where the name of this came from, allowing you to plug this in to your laptop, or your PC at any time.

    On the back, you're going to find a really, really nice display making it really easy to frame up all of your shots. As you can see, it's extraordinarily simple. There are just a few buttons onboard here for recording, for going into your playback mode, and for navigating the menus, so you're not presented with a very complicated situation. You can hand this camera to anybody, and they'll be able to immediately start recording video.

    Well, the other great feature about this is it has a built-in HDMI port located on this side right here and what that port is going to allow you to do is plug directly into your high-definition television, so you can show off all of your HD videos that you shot on the Flip UltraHD.
