San Francisco — Pure Digital Technologies announced a next-generation version of its flash-based video recorder capable of uploading video to YouTube and other video-sharing Web sites.
The Flip Video camcorder is shipping this month in two models, a 30-minute and a 60-minute version for suggested $119 and $149, respectively.
The Flip Video camcorders feature built-in software for uploading, e-mailing and editing video clips. As with the previous Point and Shoot model, consumers can bring the Flip Video to participating retailers to have their videos burned to a DVD.
CVS/pharmacy, Rite Aid, Ritz Camera Centers, Longs Drugs and Duane Reade all offer the ability to produce DVDs from the Flip Video.
The camcorders feature a 1.5-inch color screen for reviewing video and a 2x digital zoom.
