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.
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.
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: Despite some minor flaws, the Flip Video Mino is the best mini camcorder for straight-to-Web video currently available -- but it also costs more, and it can't match the features of a video-savvy point-and-shoot camera
Pros: Tiny yet functional design, Easy to use, Relatively high-quality sound and video for its class, One-touch video uploading to YouTube
Cons: Expensive, No SD/MMC card expansion slot, Rechargeable battery isn't removable or replaceable
