My parents gave this to me and Jeremy as our birthday gift this year. (our birthdays are just a couple days apart) I had never heard of this before, but it's really cool! It is a digital video recorder that is about the same size as a standard digital camera. It has a pop-out USB, so it plugs right in to the computer when you want to download your video. It seems pretty simple to use. I have not downloaded anything yet, but you can be sure to look for a home video from me in the near future! Thanks mom and dad!
