Michael Rees replied to Mike Robbins's discussion For those doing video--Flip Camera???
"Harlene is correct - we install the use of flip video in all the dealerships we work with. Done right, it will help you to produce extraordinary results. As Harlene said, don't waste your money on HD. The Ultra works just fine."

Biography/Work Summary
Started selling cars at age 18 in England, moving to Atlanta at age 23. Became one of the nation's youngest sales managers, rising through the ranks until offered an opportunity to but in to a dealership - back in England. Took the dealership in England to the top, returning to the States in 2000. Since then I have been dedicated to helping others to succeed, working with dealers all over the country by training them to be the best.
