Flip Video camera with Wi-Fi shows up at the FCC

Posted in Cisco by Conner Flynn on January 27th, 2011

An FCC filing has confirmed that Cisco is developing a Wi-Fi version of its Flip Video cameras. The M3260 has been tested using 802.11n Wi-Fi along with the HDMI and USB connectors. The purpose of the wireless is probably to share video on a local network and maybe even upload video directly to YouTube or Facebook.

We don’t know what the camera will be like outside of the Wi-Fi, or when it will ship. It should be $200 or under to fit into the marketplace.

GoPro unveils new HD Hero 960 wearable camcorder

Posted in Camcorders,Cameras by Shane McGlaun on September 30th, 2010

GoPro has been offering wearable and mountable camcorders for a while now. The latest offering from the company shares many of the same features of the older cameras at a much cheaper price. The new camera is called the HD Hero 960.

The camera supports 720p resolution, but not the 1080p resolution of the other more expensive cameras in the GoPro line. The 960 also gives up the expansion bus on the bottom of the higher-end cameras so it can’t be fitted with the extra battery or LCD back GoPro offers.

Flip video cameras to get Wi-Fi?Flip cameras are all the rage and have been for the last year or two. And rumor has it that they have a new feature in the works. Your old buddy Wi-Fi.

It’s just a rumor, but it makes sense to have Wi-Fi on a convenient camera like the Flip so you can upload videos to YouTube or elsewhere. Plus you would probably be able to watch other videos on it as well. At any rate, they had better add new features if they want to compete. So we think this one is very likely to be true.
