Summary: There’s no easier or quicker way to get your real world antics online than the Flip, and the £20 price hike over the earlier model is justified by the rechargeable battery alone. If you’re anything but a YouTube junky, though, you might find a movie-shooting digital camera a better all-rounder.
Excerpt: Pure Digital’s newest addition to the Flip family of digital camcorders is the Flip Mino . The Mino is 40% smaller than the old Flip Ultra and looks a lot better as well. Available in black or white, the Mino easily fits into any shirt pocket and is ready to shot videos at a moment’s […]
Summary: The Flip Mino is sleek, pocketable and easy to use. The video quality also excels. However, the somewhat pricey Mino's video-uploading software can be slow and buggy and the buttons are overly sensitive.
Summary: On its face, the Flip Video Mino digital camcorder is no different than similar video-sharing devices that have been available across Asia for a while now, save for the fact that Oprah put last year’s model, the Flip Video Ultra, on her annual “Favorite Things List” and her Midas touch is still being felt.
Excerpt: In today’s hurried world, it’s not uncommon for many people to use their digital camera or even camera phone to record life’s moments as movies. While the quality is normally not on par with traditional video cameras, nothing beats the convenience of easy recording “in the moment”.
Excerpt: Flip, a small startup based in San Francisco has their second video camera offering in the new Flip Mino, replacing the previous ever-popular Flip Camcorder which has sold more than 1 million units since launch.
Pros: Easy to use; includes editing software; social sharing features; compact size
Cons: Expensive; poor sound; below-average picture quality; bad zoom
Summary: I have owned a Flip since the very first model, to me anyway, it is the best pocket camcorder, the latest software release has improved the compression algorithm when sending items to other people, making it even better.
Summary: This is the second incarnation of the rather good Flip Video Ultra. This unit is smaller slimmer and aimed at the teenager and twenties market. Everything else works the same as the original product launched in the UK last year.
Summary: With the world going hi-def, it seems a strange time for dirt-cheap, USB camcorders to become hot property. But this netbook moment in shooting video is all thanks to two things: YouTube, and the Flip Video. Of course, being the original web camcorder doesn’t mean the Flip can afford to rest on its USB connector.
