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...
Pros: New Jack City : HDMI, oh my! Almost- Full Metal Jacket : Front-side brushed-metal body boosts toughness, adds character (and only 0.7 ounces). Reasonable battery life: 1.75 hours of mostly continuous recording. Upgraded software for basic video editing and quick exporting files direct to Facebook...
Cons: Despite improvements, footage still not nearly as refined as Kodak Zi8. Indented Play/Trash buttons feel and look awkward. No 60 fps. No 1080p (though both are offered by cheaper cams from other manufacturers). Front-side red LED strip broadcasts “I’m filming” to the whole world. Digital zoom is ...
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.
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.
Conclusion: Though image quality has taken a dramatic step forward from previous Flip camcorders, the MinoHD remains the kind of camcorder you will only likely use for short clips and capturing tomfoolery due to its lack of adjustability and real camcorder features, like focus and zoom.
Pros: Lightweight; ultra-slim and pocketable; excellent detail in videos; incredibly intuitive
Cons: No image stabilization; poor color; pricey for its features
Summary: Pocket HD camcorders are evolving so fast we can barely keep up. Just as the Flip Mino HD caught up with the Kodak Zi6 and Creative Vado HD with 720p recording, Toshiba has raised the bar again by announcing its £130 1080p S10 .
Conclusion: Plusieurs années après avoir conquis le marché américain, les enregistreurs vidéo de poche Flip débarque en Europe. Au nombre d’enter eux, le Flip minoHd enregistre en HD avec une qualité très correcte et simplifie leur partage à travers le Web.
Pros: simplicité et facilité d’utilisation, logiciel de partage embarqué, capacité vidéo de une heure, vidéo HD, bonne qualité d’image.
Cons: taille réduite de l’écran, qualité des vidéos en faible luminosité, autonomie.
