Summary: Length: 0:59 Mins The attached video was my first with this Flip Video. I feel sorry for my Sony Digital Video Handheld that may never be used again. This little Flip Video is the product of the year, a perfect Christmas present for anyone, children to grandparents. It is so easy to use; I still cannot believe it. Connects to the computer or TV. Easy to record, save or delete. Comes with a quick start guide that gets you going in seconds. Enjoy!!
Summary: Length: 1:34 Mins UPDATE: The new model of FLIP Video is better designed and does not have a problem with the record button being insensitive as shown in this video. Also, the HD version is already a classic! A video camera the size of a box of cigarettes records up to 1 hour of your favorite 'instant' moments with an easy on/off button, minor zoom and shuttling between videos.
Terrific substitute for a larger camcorder for casual use

Summary: I'd love to do a video review of the Flip Video Ultra, but there's so much detail to be covered, I think the video format might get boring. First, the Flip Video Ultra is in a class all its own. It is purely a highly portable video recorder for casual use. It will not replace your $12,000 Sony prosumer model or even your $800 Sony, Canon or Pansonic.
Summary: I'm a computer artist and animator and I haven't been happy with a lot of cameras. I was drawn to the Ultra Flip because of the lack of wires, I like the idea of the USB stick. They include a set of batteries with the package so you can start recording right away (as well as a little velvet drawstring bag).
