The limited edition Flip MinoHD Chrome, arguably the most stylish Flip Video camcorder to date, is available to buy in the UK this week.

Boasting a super-shiny reflective finish complemented by a striking gun-metal trim, the coveted Flip MinoHD Chrome lets you capture your own star quality in crystal clear high definition (HD) footage. With the mirrored surface making it easier than ever to film yourself, its perfect for recording personal messages on MySpace and Facebook, creating your own video blogs and even capturing you and your friends on a night out.

Of course, it comes with all the features of the Flip MinoHD, the world’s smallest HD camcorder. Weighing just over three ounces, the smart, compact design is bang on trend and fits neatly in your pocket. It features a flat back panel with touch-sensitive backlit buttons, producing stunning picture clarity even in low light with vibrant HD 720p video.

Ray Sangster, EMEA President at Flip Video said:
“With MinoHD Chrome, you’ll find a design and finish that is as sharp as the HD video it produces. MinoHD Chrome now allows you to capture everyday moments in style with star quality.

“Still simple and fun to use, it’s now one of the hottest gadgets to be seen with and has caused a style sensation in the States. We’ve even had reports of A-list female stars using them as mirrors to adjust their look as they step out onto the red carpet!”

As with other Flip Video camcorders, Flip MinoHD Chrome features one-touch recording and digital zoom, with its signature flip-out USB stick, allowing immediate upload onto any computer. The onboard software FlipShare makes it easy to edit and share what you shoot with friends and social networks.

Flip Video camcorders are a hit with celebrities including: Lily Allen, Beyonce, Jessica Alba, Katy Perry, Paris Hilton, Dannii Minogue, Stella McCartney, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, and U2.

With the Flip MinoHD Chrome there is no need for expensive add-ons. It comes with everything included, such as an inbuilt memory to record up to 60 minutes of HD-quality video.

FlipShare, the on-board state-of-the-art software comes as standard, and loads automatically when you plug the camera into the computer. Fully compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems – the software makes it simple to customise and share content, with easy drag-and-drop video editing and one-click uploading to YouTube, MySpace or email distribution.

The Flip MinoHD Chrome follows the UK launch of the Flip MinoHD in April 2009, and the Flip Mino and Flip Ultra in 2008.
