Summary: The price for the flip video minoHD And this product are 50 dollars apart. This video camera is true to it's 720p 60fps. But the onboard mic is horrid. The flip minoHD IS 1080p, the audio and video is STUNNING, and it has an online community and a free video editor(on computer). Spend 50 more dollars and buy something that will truely deliver. Oh yeah and, the flip minoHD has 8GB of storage on cam. So much better.
Summary: I had to travel for a few weeks and wanted a camera that was portable, took decent pictures and wouldn't hurt me all that much of I broke or lost it. This fit the bill perfectly. I wasn't too concerned with breaking an $80 camera, so I always had it in my bag somewhere. Really, what good is a camera if it's too bulky or precious to carry? The pros/cons are about the same for every digital camera of this size.
Summary: I bought this camcorder to film short sports clips indoors at 60hz to be able to play them back at 30hz to better see what is happening. The biggest disappointment is that there doesn't seem to be any way to play back 30hz on the camcorder - only after transferring and playing back the H.264 file in Quicktime am I able to adjust the playback frame rate. Low-light performance is marginal - pixel noise detracts from the putative HD resolution.
Summary: While I've had the camera for a few weeks now I haven't used too much but I'm pleased with my tests so far. It's very lightweight and easy to shoot with. The on-board mic isn't the best, but it's on par with most other camcorders, the mic jack is nice and makes up for the internal one though. Oddly enough I've used it more for audio recording than video >.> Strangely enough this is also an mp3 player...
Summary: This camera is not your best puchase at all! The only good thing is that it's light. If there is a better offer take it even if it cost more. It is not worth chancing it. I returned this camera after one day for the following reasons. 1. The mic SUCKS and the external mic port is no better no matter what you do to the mic. There are no internal setting for the external or internal mic in any way. 2. It isn't true HD at all.
Summary: I got this camorder and have to say this is a great buy. Light weight and easy to use (menu system is straight forward). I would recomend using the USB cable adapter NOT the power adapter for the first time charge. (Red circle indicator MUST be lit). The Lithuim battery holds a 45min charge otherwise. I would upgrade it to a higher capacity battery. Its great in full light or out door situations, unless you get a light. The mic is not all that fantastic either.
