As you all know, I am not big on product recommendations on this blog but when a company offers a cool relevant prize for someone who follows this site, I am happy to accept. As you may already know, one of the cameras I use is a Flip Mino HD camera. It’s the one which films all my face-on shots.
Flip kindly got in touch and have offered a Flip Mino HD 4gb camera to a lucky winner (worth £150). Plus it’s the slinky Chrome version they are giving away!
Flips are basically the size of a mobile phone, weigh 85g, and yet somehow manage to offer HD quality filming (HD 720p) which has 5 times more definition than standard cameras. You can watch your videos back in HD quality on your HD televisions. Their operation is extremely simple, requiring only one big red button to start and stop recording. Plus they have a digital zoom. The flip also dispenses with the need for wires and cables and memory cards as it plugs directly into the USB port of your computer. This charges this Flip and also imports your videos into the easy to use Flip software. You can then edit your videos quickly and easily and publish them straight on to YouTube if you wish.

It is open to anyone who is either an existing or new subscriber to the My Daddy Cooks newsletter, which goes out every 2 or 3 weeks with site news and updates. The winner will be picked at random (on camera, of course!) by Archie and notified on May 1st!
This competition is intended as a bit of fun for my subscribers. Repeat/bulk/third party entries will simply be ignored. Entries which do not answer both questions will also be disqualified.
