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

Pure Digital Flip Ultra HD

MacNN
29 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The Good HD video at a still-affordable price. Good form factor; HDMI out is new. Very user-friendly hardware and software. Much more storage; longer recording than Mino HD. Replaceable battery. The Bad No optical zoom; same image quality as before. FlipShare is quick but still limited. The Ultra HD is Pure Digital's flagship camcorder and carries 8GB of memory in addition to its high definition (720p) recording. Flip also offers the small form factor Flip Mino HD.
  • Pros: HD video at a still-affordable price., Good form factor; HDMI out is new., Very user-friendly hardware and software., Much more storage; longer recording than Mino HD., Replaceable battery.
  • Cons: No optical zoom; same image quality as before., FlipShare is quick but still limited.

Flip Video 1GB

maximum pc
12 September 2007
  • Excerpt: It seems that most people would want to use a high-def video recorder to document their growing families or Star Wars action-figure collections, but can a case be made for purchasing a low-res camera? At 640x480, the Flip Video’s resolution isn’t VideoCD low, but you won’t stun your family when you proudly display your movies on a 60-inch, 1080p set.
  • Pros: Fun and easy to use, and cheap enough that you won't be neurotic about taking it with you.
  • Cons: Uploading directly to the web appends a Flip Video commercial to your clip.
