Flip Camera Giveway and Video Blogging in Vancouver

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

A few months ago I was interviewed as a part of a video series by Reachd, a local firm that teaches and preaches the values of SEO. They are now offering video blogging seminars (learn how to make video, how to promote it etc.) and with the cost of signup comes a Flip Camera for all those who register.

Not surprisingly, the workshop registrations soared and they have now sold out the first event. However, you still have a chance to win your way in if you head over to the Techvibes Blog and drop a comment on this post over the next two weeks.

Their first 20-spot session on May 13th is sold-out but they’ve added a 2nd workshop on May 28th and set aside a free seat (and video camera) for a Techvibes reader. [Techvibes]

The workshops are 3 hours long (2pm to 5pm), the registration fee of $200 includes the fancy new camera, and will take place at Ceili’s Irish Pub. I had a chance to use Colleen’s Flip last night and I have to say, it’s a pretty slick compact video-making device.

    You are right, the Flips are pretty sweet. We are excited about the training and excited to be giving one of the seats + Camera away to one of the Techvibes readers.

    If only i am near your place…

    i just have bought a new video camera in hoping that i can do a much relevant blogging (video blogging) as i can see that combining article writing and video is a pretty much powerful means of communicating. its not that i want to earn more money but my country being a third world has so much story to tell that i think the world should know.

    i just hope that bloggers in my country are like yours, i know i am not the first to have video on blog here but the support is what im talking about.

    hope to see more updates on video blogging on your site and oh, thanks for the wonderful site you have–a breath of fresh air.

    I love my Flip. The only thing bad about it is iMovie does not natively support the AVI file. You need to convert it first with QuickTime Pro.

    That’s only the iMovie 08. Use the iMovie HD that should still be on your hard disk, it was not relaced by updating to the new iLife.

    If you’ve got a new Mac I believe that iMovie HD is still a free download from Apple’s site.
