My First Video!

I got this handy little Flip Mino HD as a prize for completing a ton of reviews on Trekaroo.  It was during a promotion that they were doing last year.  Since then, I have used it a handful of times but haven’t really done anything with the video.  As a matter of fact, when I went to download video from this last trip and there were 38 clips on it!  I have been inspired by the videos I have seen around the web so I thought that I would give it a try. 

It is definitely not greatness but I did learn a lot!  Most importantly, I need to pay attention to the screen (and not the subject!) when I record video.  This video is just a little sneak peek of what my posts next week will be about!  Enjoy!

Disclosure: We were guests of Wilderness at the Smokies for two nights.  Water park admission is included with every hotel stay because you must be guests of the hotel to visit the water park.  While on this trip, we paid for everything else including our meals and the gas to get there.  My reviews are based solely on my experiences and opinion with no outside influence.

    Nice to see that somewhere in the U.S., it’s warm enough to visit a water park! (It’s not, here) Look forward to hearing more about your water park experiences.

    With the heat bearing down on us in Atlanta, I would love to pack up my family and head out there now. 🙂

    Nice job on the video! I have yet to really experiment with the Flip I bought near the end of last year.

    Thanks everyone! It was fun to try and put it all together…I hope to get better at holding the camera!

    Nice video. It gave a good impression of what the park was like and that your kids aren’t that one in a million that deplore playing in water. 🙂
