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: 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: I bought this last year and was really impressed by its portability, easy of use, easy interfacing with the computer and its associated computer software. The videos shot was also pretty good for viewing in my laptop for I would say majority of the situations. Its extreme portability and its cellphone type profile meant that I could slip it into my pocket and take videos anywhere without most people actually noticing.I am a bit of a shy person and I am not comfortable in...
Summary: As a mother of two kids I can always use a good video camera to capture those great moments wether its a milestone, school awards/programs, at home playing around, or out and about, and who wants to carry around a large camera all the time? This camera is perfect for my needs, its as small as a cell phone so it can be carried in a pocket, purse or diaper bag. It has great picture quality for it's size and pricing.
Summary: We have had many camcorders in the past, but for size, this one gives fairly good video and it's extremely easy to use. The software that comes with it is easy to install. The two drawbacks are that in low light it's very "grainy" and you also have to move very s-lo-w-l-y, or else when viewed back on a tv or when burned onto a DVD, it will almost make you dizzy. For the size though you can't beat it.
Summary: Decent product but think the HD version I used to have took better quality video. Overall I am still sold on the flip video and ease of use. Small in size, no cords, batteries to replace, software on device, can take still shots from the footage, and so easy to edit and make video's.
Summary: Aside from the confusion of the model of the Flip that was sent to me, the Flip Ultra (Model f230b) that I recieved was in great shape and was sent very fast. Flip Ultra generation 1 is a tough little camcorder, and if you want to take shorter videos and save your batteries on your more recent versions of the Flip, I suggest reverting back to Flip Ultra generation 1, with its 2GB memory. It downloads alot faster with short videos that you may want to Email or put online.
Summary: this is the most fun little video camera to own. Quick to recharge and very user friendly. I had to have it for school, but it's fun to play with. Plug it in with its builtin USB connection and a activity window automatically pops up. Doesn't get easier.
