Pure Digital Flip Ultra Series F260 Camcorder

The Pure Digital Flip Ultra has no fast forward, rewind or pause buttons. It's similar to a Nikon Digital SLR. See where I’m going with this? That’s right, it forces you to be immediate. Artistic. Goddardian. You’ll have to push your acting skills to the limit. Every gesture, every movement, all in one single, perfect, economic 2GB 60 minute take that can be moved to your computer via the built-in USB arm.

Make an action movie and your stuntman has to make that jump exactly. Make a saga of one man fighting against all odds over a thirty year period to become the leader of his people and you’re going to need a whole bunch of these cameras.

But isn’t that how film started? Raw, quick, and pointless? People used to pay a penny to see a fat guy slip on a banana peel, and how is that any different from YouTube? Without that fat guy and that banana peel, there would be no Warner Brothers, Paramount or Cannon Film Group. Although maybe there isn’t a Cannon Film Group any more. That doesn’t change our point, however.
