you can cop a really nice Flip for under 200 that can record HD quality vid and all you have to do is plug it directly into your comp to upload it.

i just bought one a few weeks ago.
http://www.theflip.com/en-us/?gclid=CIWUvMHjsaMCFRsNswodihHU5Q

its pretty dope. quality is great and its easy to just flip the usb plug out the side and upload to the comp. plus its small as a phone so you can put it in ur pocket for nights out or secret porn films. lol

i got mine from best buy for $175. "ultra HD 2hrs"

but if your budget is 400 then you could get the "slide 2hrs" for about 250-275

dude...stop wasting your money on this bullshit that depreciates the second you buy it.

You should be saving RIGHT NOW....you will thank me in ten years when you got at least 25 g's just chillin while your friends have debt from stupid electronic and automobile purchases.

at 5 g's a year, which is do-able, thats what? 500 a month? not even, about 400....put that in the bank, and in ten years thats almost 50 G's.

And thats just sitting in a savings account....you can mess around with some low risk investments too.



Do it now. YOu wont even remember who told you to do it in ten years, but you'll be glad you did it.

the fuck am look like saving checks from a state job to buy more ramen in the future?

for what? my future is based on making MORE money, not spending less. savings is good for emergency but it isn't the 'key' to success unless you have a specific plan or thing you need, otherwise im focused on find ways to make more.

for example, if i buy this baller ass camera i will have almost sole ownership of the music video making market here in town which can make me steady and constant LOOT. I can also, if i want, film events, and, as i plan to do, shoot my own music videos and promote my gawd awesume Captain America mixtape which i've been working on.

im getting the ballerest camera possible, and light fixtures and im trying to learn the dynamics of it as we speak.


or i can save this 400 dollars and spend it in 2020 when it's worth what 40 dollars is today on fuckin top ramen

remember when you spent your life savings on a pontiac grand am?

and then it broke down the second week you had it and you were crying to wu corp for help?


well your going to lose your camera the second night out and your going to be stuck paying back interest on the loan you took out for that ballerific camera.



Im saying if your goal in life is to be a social worker.....yo ass better start saving

If theoretically the price implies the value i would like a 400 one because i want excellent next level clarity and picture.
Gavin's is dope and im not discounting it, realistically i might even get it.

I drive a white nissan maxima. leather fuckin seats pussy.
shit still drives smooth as FUCK. I could have touch'd out and bought a fuckin pontiac from the 80s like all the touchs i know kept saying but then the fucker would break down 24/7, be ugly as fuck, and not make me proud. Id also take less care of it cause it's gay and that's called human psychology. Buying a nice car ensures i take meticulous care of it, i achieve my set goals as a young man of getting pussy for materialistic things and having a good time, and i have a purchase i can be proud of. Maybe i wont have an extra 1000 sitting around in 2020 when it's worth 10 dollars to buy top ramen with but my next car after this will be even more baller cause it's called progress.

2. Im not taking the camera out, there are legions of white girls that can take my facebook pictures for me, gonna make baller ass music videos to promote my own steelo.
and i make 1200-1600 a paycheck, ain't nobody takin out no fuck in loan lol.

^this quality is my benchmark so i guess 12 is the goal

the 400 one you posted is refurbished meaning its used and repaired with used parts.
the flip id HD quality. it looks like a cheap cam but its actually dope. its like judging an iphone by its slimness and squareness.

but if you don't cop a flip, get something new. cause the one you posted looks dated and would seem unballerific.

scroll thru these and find one in ur range.

yeah man i'd just recommend to scour the web before you buy cause the camera game is booming and better cams come out monthly. so u could get the topshelf from last xmas fo da xtra low.

i just think 400 is waaaay to high for what you are looking for.
basically you have a 200-300 range and a 1000+ range.

if you pay more than 300 then you ain't gonna get the bang for the buck until you approach the 1000 range if you catch my drift.

Uncle Steezo
08-12-2010, 08:27 PM
i use imovie which is for hipsters(mac) only. holler at infinity or skampoe they know about the windows stuff.

but a lot of cams come with software but from what i have seen and heard none of them are worth shit.

that maxima probably has a book value of 2900-3600 private sale

if you bought it at a dealership they probably ripped you off.

08-12-2010, 09:10 PM
the price was 7200
the book value was 6500 or so
i bought it for 5700 cause the guy wasn't done reinstalling the back seat, which i did myself.

it was a private guy
