I love the Flip for my purposes, a little goes a long way.

Summary: Most people today criticize the flip as being outdated, obsolete, unnecessary because modern smart phones can shoot video as well or better than the Flip. While they may have valid arguments I still love the Flip despite its dated short comings. The videos are of a decent quality, are easy to upload, FlipShare software is very easy to use for both archiving and sharing via email or the FlipShare archive site. I video my son's basketball games and share them via email.
Small, good picture quality and sound is not bad for a tiny camcorder.

Summary: I bought two of these and I use one for You Tube videos of music from my church Praise band. These little recorders are terrific for grab and record devices. They are currently dirt cheap on Ebay.
Summary: I had a great experience buying this little camcorder, it does a better job video recording than my Iphone, you even may purchase a new little tripod for under $3.00 and set it up i small and tight corners to render self videos in fix places like a speech or playing an instrument etc,
Summary: I got this camera for a song: just under $9 for a $200 camera. The seller thought it might be broken, but it was just an easy fix: a completely dead battery. The only problem with a MINO is that if the battery is completely exhausted, the camera will look dead even after it is plugged into a power source, sometimes for a few hours. Then when there's just enough charge in the battery, something will show up on the LCD screen.
Summary: My go to camera for simple documenting of family memories. Ease of use means I can have it off to anyone and still get quality videos with me in them, unlike the more complicated and expensive ones. If you want simple easy to use, this the camera.
