Summary: I am a media specialist in a middle and high school. We purchased these cameras about a year ago when the model with the rechargable battery first came out. We loved the portability and similarity to a cell phone camera for our audience.
Summary: This is my THIRD Flip video camera. I owned 2 of the Flip Ultra 60 minutes cameras before purchasing this one. I had actually lost one of my originals and had loaned out the other to my mom in another state. I was headed for vacation and needed a camera.
Summary: This is a VERY HONEST review of my Mino and the Customer Service at PureDigital (the makers of the Flip Mino). Please keep in mind when dealing with electronics there are always lemons for whatever reason. I, unfortunately, was someone who had a lemon.
Summary: The new FLIP is a wonderful little device, when you first start using it. However there's a down side that almost makes me want to return to the previous generation. It does NOT take AA batteries. In my opion that's a deal killer for many users.
Summary: they overwhelming amount of positive feedback made me give the mino a try. yes, the size factor is great, and no, the video quality is not. its more on par with what you get with your average webcam. only when shooting in bright daylight is the result acceptable.
Summary: This thing is a techno marvel, in that they can pack so much into such a small space. but, in the end, so what? It's marginally better than most cell phones or digicams in quality terms, except for its long record time (60 min).
Summary: Before all you 5-star reviewers go ballistic on me, hear my reasoning. I am VERY picky! There are a few problems I've encountered so far. The case that comes with it can't protect the camera from anything except dirt and scratches.
Summary: I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere and I thought it was important for Mac users to be filled in on the following.... 1. The software that comes with the Flip Video Mino does NOT allow you to stitch multiple clips together to make one movie. Only Windows users can do this. 2.
Summary: My main criticism is that after having 3 Flip cameras over the last 10 years (1 was lost) nothing seems to be done to improve the zoom. it is quite pathetic and frankly a waste of time. At £159 I expected better. The screen is smaller than my last model. A disappointment
Summary: My Flip video camera came with a 2 for 1 Family Fun Days Out Offer which includes free golf lessons. I have so far contacted 3 of the listed Golf Courses and none of them has ever heard of the offer. Is this some kind of scam?
