Review: Pure Digital Flip MinoHD (Second Gen)

Wired
14 October 2009
  • Excerpt: We love being right. Despite all the hype for Pure Digital’s cheap pocket camcorders, the first iteration of the the MinoHD colored us meh : The 1.5-inch screen was too tiny for playback, the HD quality wasn’t up to snuff compared to cheaper devices from the company’s price-gouging competitors, and...

Flip Video MinoHD Camcorder Review

Digitaltrends
16 August 2009

  • 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.
