Unless you're a die hard Flip fan, it's hard to recommend this over the Toshiba Camileo S10.
  • Pros: Improving on the recent Flip minoHD, the Flip UltraHD offers 8GB of storage built in, providing 2 hours worth of hi-res footage, and a larger 2-inch screen so you can see what you're filming for once. Recording is as as fool proof as ever: just push the big red button and you're away. The footage itself is crisp enough, and even stands up well in low light for the price you pay (do expect noise though), and you can play it all back straight away via the Mini HDMI port.
  • Cons: At £160, the Flip has lost its purpose of being somewhat. It's fine, but Toshiba sells a full HD camcorder for a whole £40 less now. With auto focus. What gives? We're also getting a bit tired of the pop out USB port. Convenient, yes, but when the camera itself is wider than the port, it becomes next to impossible to stick one in a laptop without having to balance the machine in a ridiculous position, and since it's to the top of the Flip UltraHD, it threatens fall of...

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.
