Ok, So last friday I bought a new white flip camera at best buy, and after one week it's dead. The darn thing won't turn on. It went off after recording a video Wednesday night and won't turn back on. A quick google search indicates that it's a pretty common problem. Heading back to Best buy tomorrow to exchange it for something else. I'm thinking I will get a Kodak Zi8 or Playsport. Same price range but they support 1080 resolution instead of just 720 that the flip does.
Wish me luck!
