I'll get this if it is 500 points or lower. I think that it is really cool. It says you can work with 9999 pixels by 9999 pixels. My dad has a 12.7 megapixel camera and its maximum resolution is 4000 pixels by 3000 pixels. This means that the graphics on this are more than twice high quality than a 12.7 Megapixel camera! It is also interesting that the 3DS's graphics (Which are really good) are 800 pixels by 240 pixels. (on the touch screen) This Means that the 3DS Only has a fraction of the graphics of inchworm animation. Plus it is in color! and you can make bmp. files! Sure, it doesn't have sound and no online communications thing (like flipnote studio has) and it is free, but those are the only disadvandages against Flipnote Studio. I want to get it.

I saw a video of it on another website, AND IT IS SIMPLY AMAZING! AMAZING! My jaw dropped as I was watching the video. YOU CAN PRETTY MUCH VIDEOTAPE BY MAKING ALOT OF BLANK FRAMES AND SETTING IT TO TAKE A PICTURE EVERY FRAME! AND YOU CAN EDIT VIDEOS AS YOU WATCH! I AM MORE EXCITED ABOUT THIS THAN THE 3DS!

Not a bad piece of film equipment. Though it was made by some film company (Flat Black Films, that IS a a movie place right?) so I'd expect it to be good.

Whoever wants to get this: DON'T get it. First of all, it doesn't have an eraser. (If you wanted to erase something, you'd have to clear the entire page!) Second of all, it costs money, unlike flipnote studio. It's hard and complicated to use, and it doesn't have a left-hand option. Although it does have colors, you should stick with Flipnote Studio if you want to animate. Unfortunately, this was a waste of time and money for me.
