The Advocates: Palm Pilots


There have been so many advances in palm-sized video cameras lately -- not the least of which are the pint-sized price tags -- that there's no excuse not to get in on the hi-res fun. Here are three of our favorites.

MOST STYLISH Flip MinoHD There's a lot to love about the Mino: It's the smallest of the cameras here and the easiest to use. The battery, memory, and connector are built in, and you can choose from dozens of images-or use one of your own-for the case.

>> 1.5-inch screen >> 4GB internal memory >> 1280x720p >> 16:9 cinematic widescreen >> Holds 60 minutes >> Built-in rechargeable battery >> Built-in USB connector >> 3.3 ounces >> Silver, black, and a range of stock or custom designs >> MSRP $230 >>


The Ultra is a bit thicker than others but offers added flexibility with accessible batteries (you can use rechargeable or standard AA). The screen is larger and you can connect directly to a TV or your computer using the HDMI output. More internal memory gives you twice the recording time of the Mino.

>> 2-inch screen >> 8GB internal memory >> 1280x720p >> 16:9 cinematic widescreen >> Holds 120 minutes >> AA batteries (rechargeable or regular) >> Built-in USB connector >> HDMI out >> White or black >> 6.0 ounces >> MSRP $200 >>


The Zx1 provides the most flexibility of the group-with multiple jacks out and an SD card that has the ability to capture 10 hours of video. We like the sharp screen too. It did, however, take us a few minutes to get used to the controls.

>> 2-inch screen >> 128MB internal memory >> 720p >> 16:9 cinematic widescreen >> Up to 10 hours with 32GB SD card (not included) >> AV, USB, and HDMI out (cables included) >> AA rechargeable batteries included >> 3.2 ounces (without batteries) >> Red, blue, black, pink, yellow >> MSRP $150 >>

Bringing Elegance Back to the e-Invitation

We love letterpress invitations as an offset to our very digital lives, but they're not always practical and are seldom affordable. That's why we're so drawn to Paperless Post, a new site that offers both the elegance of traditional invitations and greater flexibility than more popular digital-invitation sites. The site is well designed and easy to use; features a range of styles, colors, fonts, and embellishments for your invites; and offers many features for managing RSVPs, including tickets for paid or limited-space events. The service costs a few cents per invitation, managed by buying books of "stamps," starting with 60 stamps (for 60 invitations) for only $5.
