San Francisco — Pure Digital Technologies will ship a new flash-based video camera and related accessories to retailers this month, the company said today.
The new Flip Video Ultra series will pack more internal memory than the previous Flip models, which stay on the market. A 2GB/60-minute model will retail for a suggested $179. It will be available in white, black, orange and pink. A 1GB/30-minute model will retail for $149 and will be sold in black and white.
Pure Digital's Flip Video Ultra
Flip Ultra features built-in software for editing and uploading videos to popular video sharing sites such as YouTube. The software also lets users create custom movies or pull still images from movie files.
The camera features a 1.5-inch LCD screen and a 2x digital zoom.
Like the previous model, the new Flip Ultra can be brought to participating retailers to have its contents burned to a DVD for home viewing. CVS, Rite Aid, Ritz Camera Centers, Longs Drugs and Duane Reade all offer the ability to produce DVDs from the Flip Video.
A line of accessories will accompany the new camera to market, including a pouch, tripod, mount and USB extension cables.
