Thanks for the input everyone - the helmet cam sounds cool
Rob, I indeed was doing something I never do and "wrist driving" doing that filming - I never do that sort of thing, honestly. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed at the updating of the mapping, but I reported it - Tomtom has a very good map correction report interface, although it doesn't seem like many people use it. I'll be interested to see if it is corrected, they do 4 updates a year.
so, a brief recap: I do really like the camera, I know I'll be getting the wide angle lens attachment (about $25) so that I can hold the camera about a foot away and get a full head and shoulders shot - right now, it's nearly 3 feet to get a good portrait view.
I liked my larger Flip but the USB dongle won't connect to any computer so it is pretty much only good to connect via hdmi to the TV now. But the stability of the image is much better with the smaller Mino. Neither have image stabilization but I think the weight or balance is better in the smaller camera, and the specs for record time and resolution are the same. I noticed that it is NOW Cisco Flip, it was Pure Flip - I assume Cisco bought Pure or something like that.
It is the camera chosen by nearly all the Youtube Superstars, which says a lot for the cam.
I have a post about Raywilliamjohnson (youtube that name as is) he is the SECOND most viewed and subscribed Youtuber with well over 2 million viewers of ever video and he does 2 a week, he takes 3 viral videos and does funny and interesting introductions and comments on all - very talented guy.
Anyway... I still say I like Tracey's Garmin much better than the Tomtom, of course with Bluetooth and SD card interface, the Garmin is a super GPS - I saw my Tomtom at Staples for $259 just a few days ago, so I got it more than $150 cheaper than that, so I'm not complaining, just get me to where I wanna go!
I'm editing 2 more videos now that I'll be uploading soon - now that I got the scaling of the editing software down, I can upload the videos in HD, I hate to compromise now that I have the PC and cam both in working order, no excuses.
Oh... anyone brave enough to do Karaoke videos - believe it or not, Beemaster can carry a tune, if I could only get over my camera shyness - lol.
