Summary: I purchased this to make tutorial videos for my website. I liked how I could use the mini tripod to put it on a bookshelf to get a good angle. The controls are very simple and the sound is amazingly good for such a cheap video camera. I wish the HD quality was a bit better with the lighting and the 1 hour max is a bit of a nuisance because of the amount of time it takes to transfer data to my MAC.
Summary: Bought this to capture footage from my first trip to Las Vegas and it was definitely worth every penny i spent on it. Battery life could be improved a bit since it seems to be high drain, but its definitely worth owning this item, especially is using rechargeable batteries.
Summary: Battery died rather quickly and had a problem with freezing.Other than that it was a replacement for a gift that was lost during vacation. Not bad money for the product. Wish it came with a manual to help troubleshoot freezing problem all we could do was remove batteries and start over. Not fun during parties.
Summary: It is pretty easy to use.I had one before which was lost. Very pleased with it. its performance. The camera does not come with lot of instructions to make the best of it. I ordered Flip for dummies and that was really helpful.
Excerpt: The Flip Video is great because you can carry it anywhere. I've been carrying mine around my purse and capturing random video of my kids. I love it because of it's side, it's built-in memory, built-in USB adaptor, and that fact that it's idiot proof. The only thing that I don't love is that you can't add more memory. My only record 30 minutes at a time.
Excerpt: I recently bought the second generation, flip ultra and love it! It is extremely user friendly, the picture is good enough for my purposes, and I can hear my little ones jibberish clearly. I love how compact it is, perfect to always have on hand to catch all of those little kid moments! I like that the button to delete videos has a safety feature with a double prompt, so that I cannot accidentally delete videos that I wanted to keep.

Excerpt: I myself Own this product. I simply have to say that this product is outstanding.i say this because it is easy to carry around and has good quality. Most cameras you get around stores like target are very expensive but are really horrible.The flip camcorder also has an advantage of being ultra easy to use, with just just a few pressing on keys you can be making amazing videos people WANT to see.therefore i rate this item 9 out of 10.
Excerpt: This is the perfect little camera to tuck in your bag and keep with you - you'll never miss anything!! The sound and video quality are great for the price, and the ultra portability is awesome. Plus, it has a USB that pops out, and the video editing software is right there, so there's very little fuss involved. I'm very happy with my camera, and I've been using it for about 4 months.
Excerpt: Great little simple camera. I've had it about a month and still on the original set of batteries (2 AAs). Easy to use, easy to view, and easy to transfer to the computer. Great price from Amazon. One button to record, one button to playback, and one button to delete. The USB port "flips" out the side, plugs into the computer, and the software installs automagically. It comes with a cord to connect directly to a TV, but I have not tried it yet.
