>> David Carnoy: I'm David Carnoy and I'm here with the new Flip Video Slide HD pocket camcorder. If you look at this model from the front it actually looks a lot like some of Flips other HD models, the Ultra HD and even the Mino HD. It's got a white and silver 2 tone design, but the key difference here is that this has a integrated 3 inch LCD, it's actually a touch screen LCD that slides up, allows you to set this thing down on a desk and watch your videos. From the side it at least it looks actually a little bit thicker than the Ultra HD but it is the same size that that two tone coloring creates a little bit of an optical illusion. The Mino HD however is more compact than this model so if you are looking for the most compact Flip HD model it's still the Mino HD. The screen on the back as we said is a touch screen LCD. It isn't quite as responsive as something like the iPhone or the iPod Touch. We had no problem navigating the device and also playing back our videos. Previously on other Flip models you had that red button on the back for recording, now it is a virtual button. As for connectivity, you get the trademark flip out USB connector at the top of the device. There's also a headphone jack on the bottom and an HDMI output. However, Flip does not include the HDMI cable; you need to connect this to your TV. One of the other key differences about this model is that it comes with more memory than previous Flip models. This comes with 16 gigabytes of internal memory, there's no external slot for adding more memory, some pocket camcorders out there do shoot 1080p but this only goes up to 720p. For a pocket camcorder the slide HD does shoot a sharp, fairly impressive video, this is not a true HD camera with optical zoom, but it does shoot sharp video and it is very convenient to use like other Flip models. Actually what Flip has also done for this model is integrate its Flip channels onto it so you can take video that other people share with you and store it on this device. That video is compressed, you can actually store more video on the device, up to 16 hours of that video. [ Background music ] I'm David Carnoy and that's the Flip Video Slide HD.

Flip SlideHD (4 hours, White) Review
The good: Simple recording controls; 3-inch LCD; 16GB of storage; integrated FlipShare software remains excellent.
The bad: No memory expansion; no HDMI cable included; finicky touch-screen controls; pricey.
The bottom line: The Flip Video SlideHD is a tough sell unless you really want a larger screen for viewing and sharing videos on the go.
