Summary: The Flip MinoHD is a very simple to use camcorder. With its small form factor and minimalistic controls, it's a perfect little camera for capturing short videos. The FlipShare software allows you to easily retrieve videos from the camera and upload them to social sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Excerpt: With the original MinoHD, we were impressed with Flip Video’s ability to pack 720p video into a truly pocket-size cam. But we nonetheless wished the product offered a bit more, such as more recording time, HDMI support, and a bigger screen.

Excerpt: Flip MinoHD™: The World's Smallest HD Camcorder Flip was kind enough to send me one of there new Flip Mino HD camcorders to review. I love this little camera, it is small very easy to use and very stylish.
Excerpt: The Good HD a boon for HDTV enthusiasts or simply future proofing. Simple but excellent FlipShare software loaded on the camera. Very straightforward on-camera control. Good low-light sensitivity; detail kept in most individual video frames.
Pros: HD a boon for HDTV enthusiasts or simply future proofing., Simple but excellent FlipShare software loaded on the camera., Very straightforward on-camera control., Good low-light sensitivity; detail kept in most individual video frames., 4GB of memory built-in enough to handle likely uses of HD wi...
Cons: No removable storage or battery., Images occasionally subject to purple fringing or poor light level transitions., Battery life is just 'good enough.' - Software lacks clip trimming or other editing besides clip selections and music., Needs optical zoom to truly rival larger, more expensive cameras.
Excerpt: We’re big fans of Flip Video’s incredibly easy-to-use pocket-size video cameras, but it’s been difficult to wholeheartedly recommend them given the superior video capabilities of today’s point-and-shoot digicams. Flip’s new MinoHD changes that.
Pros: Super portable and spontaneous HD video in your pocket.
Conclusion: Our main concern is battery life and storage capacity, mainly as they are fixed with no way to expand them. As such, when the battery runs out, you're looking at a minimum two hour charge and as it's built in you can't buy a spare.
