There is a new member in growing family of  Flip mini-HD camcorders. The SlideHD features a special design that is quite a departure from previous models, and it's a lot more capable in recording mode than its predecessors as well.

The SlideHD can record up to four hours of high-definition video at 30fps with a 1,280 x 720 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio. With 16GB of internal memory, users can store up to 12 hours of video within the device in a lesser-quality "space saver" format. There's even a "Child Safe" selection mode to prevent any little hands from accidentally erasing your content.

But the design is just as noteworthy on the SlideHD as well. The standard design is the white and silver color scheme, as pictured above. Buyers also have the option of customizing the camcorder's design on Flip's online store, either using one of Flip's preset patterns or using a photo/design of your own.

Then there is the most obvious difference: the SlideHD literally slides open to reveal a 3-inch wide touchscreen display for easy viewing and sharing of your videos.

Compatible with both Mac and PC systems, there is also the option for HDMI output to project your videos on your TV. The battery life isn't too shabby, with up to two hours of operation on a single charge of the internal Li-ion rechargeable battery.

The SlideHD is available now for $279.99 in stores and online. Will you be picking one up soon?
