Flip UltraHD and MinoHD third-generation camcorders

HEXUS
15 November 2010
  • Conclusion: With the Flip camcorder, what you record is what you get. There are no image adjustment options, and all footage is captured in the standard 720p HD resolution at 50 frames per second. White balance, black level calibration and exposure control is all handled automatically with no input from the user and video is output in a compressed H.264 format at an average bit rate of 8.8Mbps. But the simplification is by no means a bad thing.

Flip Ultra HD 2010

MacNN
13 October 2010
  • Excerpt: The Good 60FPS video with image stabilization. FlipPort for extending the feature set. Still very simple to use; same for FlipShare. Good audio quality. Neutral color balance. Replaceable battery. The Bad No 1080p or optical zoom. Value is hurting compared to multi-role devices. Visible compression and blur artifacts in video. FlipPort is proprietary. Design and the new FlipPort You'd be forgiven for thinking the Ultra HD has gone unchanged on the outside.
  • Pros: 60FPS video with image stabilization., FlipPort for extending the feature set., Still very simple to use; same for FlipShare., Good audio quality., Neutral color balance., Replaceable battery.
  • Cons: No 1080p or optical zoom., Value is hurting compared to multi-role devices., Visible compression and blur artifacts in video., FlipPort is proprietary.

Flip UltraHD (Third Generation) Review

Digitaltrends
27 September 2010
  • Conclusion: Smooth, balanced footage without tics and jerks trumps slightly-off color every time, and both the accessories and dual battery capabilities make the UltraHD 3 a far more flexible model than any in Flip’s line. But there are other pocketcams that capture higher-resolution video, megapixel stills, and endowed with more capabilities – if not the improved image stabilization or stupid-simple operation – at a similar price.
  • Pros: Gyro-based anti-jitter, 60 fps smoothes out footage, 16-pin FlipPort allows third-party accessories, Runs on both lithium ion cell and alkaline AAA
  • Cons: Less natural color, less contrast than previous generation, No still image capture, Micro HD jack, no included cable or adapter, Too expensive for too few capabilities

Flip Video UltraHD ( 3rd gen)

CNET
2 June 2010
  • Summary: Another minor refresh from Flip Video, the new UltraHD is a small, simple camcorder with only a handful of new features to differentiate it from the last model in the range. There are a couple of glaring omissions -- no 1080p or photo modes, for example -- but it's still a great choice.
  • Pros: Good quality video recording;. small and light;. easy to use;. comes with handy on-board editing and sharing software.
  • Cons: No memory card slot;. HD up to 720p only;. no photo mode;. no HDMI cable provided.

Flip Ultra-HD

Tech2
3 February 2010
  • Excerpt: The Flip UltraHD is unlike any other pocket camcorder we've reviewed off late. It's simply a point-and-shoot camcorder and though it might not change the way we record videos it surely is one of the simplest “point and shoot” camcorders you can get your hands on. At 2.19 x 4.25 x 1.17 inches the UltraHD is thick which makes it almost impossible to slip into one's pocket. That said the camcorder is quite light for its size and isn't as heavy as it looks.

Software update adds simple video sharing feature

Consumer Electronics Net
16 June 2009
  • Excerpt: When I first reviewed the Pure Digital Flip camera back in 2007, I liked the camera for its ease of use, video quality, and portability. The video camera pretty much set the video camera world on its ears, with more than 2 million cameras sold since being introduced several years ago--so much so that Cisco Systems snatched up the company. The latest version of the camera, The Flip UltraHD coupled with the latest version of FlipShare, keeps the solution a compelling one.

Flip Video UltraHD Pocket Digital Camcorder Review

Futurelooks
26 May 2009
  • Summary: The first Flip Ultra pocket camcorder really changed the game when it came to casual video recording, because it was just so simple and easy to use. The video was better than cell phones, but I'd still say that regular digital cameras were able to record better quality video. With the Flip Ultra HD , Pure Digital has definitely upped the ante.
  • Pros: Increased storage capacity allows for 120 minutes of video, Remarkably easy to use and understand, HDMI output for instant sharing, Improved low light performance compared to MinoHD
  • Cons: No included mini-HDMI or USB extension cable, Only 2x digital zoom, no optical zoom, Significantly bulkier than the MinoHD
