RIP Flip Video Cameras?

I hope not. While many video professionals scoff at consumer products like Cisco’s Flip cameras, I personally love mine. I use it to record things with my kids and I also take it on shoots with me to record behind the scenes clips that might be useful sometime down the road, even if it’s just to email a short video to a client or crewmember.

Well, Cisco released a statement saying they will “Close down its Flip business and support current FlipShare customers and partners with a transition plan.”

This is in line with Cisco’s re-focusing on their core business. They are pretty much cutting the cord on all consumer products and attempting to regain their mojo with enterprise clients.

So, I guess the Flip is dead. Long live the Flip!
