Excerpt: I didn’t think I would ever have use for a camcorder , because I don’t ever use the video option on my phone, and because I am an avid photographer, I didn’t think I would have use for or have time to videotape my travels and adventures. After a trip to Europe, I began discussing purchasing an inexpensive, small video because there were plenty of opportunities during our trip which would have lent themselves well to video .
Minos in general are compact, useful, and have great internal battery life.

Summary: I own several Minos. Probably the best feature in the 1-hour models is that the fully charged battery will not die before your time runs out. Because these are smaller than smart phones they're very easy to pop into your back pocket and have handy at all times. I am a chronic amateur videographer and always have a Mino handy for pulling off the highway and getting pictures of the sky, or nature shots, or fall colors.
Summary: I bought this after watching ten-year-old home videos and realizing that I didn't have many home videos to watch since then. Since this camera was only about $50 including shipping, I decided to go for it. PROS - It definitely holds a charge - It's super light - It has a decent zoom, not as good as a regular camcorder but much better than a typical camera phone - While it doesn't film in HD, the quality of the film is far from grainy when you playback the footage on a...
Summary: I like using the Flip Video. It is simple, quick, and easy to edit and upload my videos to YouTube. I like the one-step connection with the USB along with the easy way it recharges itself. I have posted a few videos of my outdoor cooking and find it to be just the thing for those short clips. My son recommended it to me and I recommend it to you... The only reason for 4 stars on picture quality is because it is not HD. Order HD if it is THAT important.
Summary: I ordered this as a present for my brother-in-law. The description said "gray shading". The "gray shading" was black fingerprints like it was used to film a house fire. After e-mailing customer service they told me that "it clearly states gray shading". Is this a joke? you sent me a dirty piece of s*** flip video. Never again with these idiots. Order a flip camera from anywhere else bug these morons.
Summary: This is a good little video camera for carrying around everywhere you go for spur of the moment filming. Its very easy to use. The only problem I have with it is that it didnt work in windows movie maker at first but there are ways around that if you search the internet. Otherwise, its great!!
Summary: Great little camcorder. I keep it in my shirt pocket to take clips of friends' golf swings and grandson's basketball footwork, as well as parties etc. The USB connection to the computer works like a charm. The software downloaded from Flip links segments into a continuous movie, or captures frames for a snapshot, or links the frames to a movie, and puts title frames on the movie. Then it allows me to send the movies and snapshots to friends and family by e-mail.
Summary: I immediately fell in love with this video camera. I originally bought this as a gift, then decided to buy another and keep it for my own. I have always been with the camera to take only pictures and this is a very good camera for beginner video recorders. It will fit right into your pocket: just about the same size as your cell phone, so it is very convenient to whip it out when something worth recording comes up and it will start up in about 3 seconds after turning it...
Summary: I love this flip video it is great! My husband I bought it because we had a baby and we didn't want to miss out on those special moments. It is perfect size to throw in my purse and take wheverever we end up!
