PureDigital Flip Ultra Video Camera

7 July 2009
  • Summary: The setup process for the Flip Ultra is very simple and will have to be done initially - and when you change the batteries.  It basically involves setting the correct time and date as well as indicator sounds on button presses and a record light.  There is nothing else.  This makes it very easy for everyone to get started.  Flip video cameras are meant to be super simple and they nail it.  There are no manual exposure controls, white balance or night-vision modes.
  • Pros: Super simple to use, Excellent video quality in good lighting conditions, Very good battery life on cheap "AA" batteries, FlipShare software is very handy and simple
  • Cons: No optical zoom, Poor quality in low-light, Fixed focus doesn't allow close-ups

Flip Ultra Camcorder Review

Hardware Secrets
8 September 2008
  • Summary: If you want to take high quality videos, look elsewhere. The Flip, however, provides a quick and easy way to post video online at YouTube or other websites and/or to send it to friends. The convenience that the Flip offers makes you want to carry it everywhere and take quick videos all day long. Pure even gives you two version of the Flip, one that uses AA batteries and one that has a rechargeable battery. The video quality is good given the low resolution.

Flip Video Ultra

10 June 2009
  • Summary: The Flip Video Ultra may be easy to use and highly portable, but the myriad features missing is unforgivable.
  • Pros: Standard-definition imagery is actually pretty good. Unbelievably user-friendly.
  • Cons: Not HD, no autofocus, no exposure options, no video light... need we go on?

Review: Flip Ultra

5 October 2008
  • Excerpt: The Flip video cameras had been making some waves last year and now that it’s available in Canada we were able to take one for a test drive. The Flip seems to create its own genre – a kind of point and shoot video camera. In a market where almost everything has a built in camera and half of those are capable of video capture it’s interesting to see how the Flip line carves out a niche and justifies its existence as a simple single function camcorder.

Flip Video Ultra review

9 July 2008
  • Summary: YouTube’s influence, it seems, knows no bounds. Not only has it inspired a daily, global version of You’ve Been Framed , Flip Video UK and Creative have even made mini camcorders whose sole aim is to let you shoot and upload videos without the fuss of converting file formats. The Flip Video Ultra is a solid-state number and feels much more toy-like than the Creative Vado. It’s a somewhat chunky piece of plastic, but is narrow enough to fit comfortably in your hand.

Flip Video Ultra

30 June 2008
  • Summary: Flip is not an expletive but rather a nice handheld camcorder that costs less than £100. The most important points are that the quality is superb and it is extremely easy to use and transfer or watch the output.

Teste da Filmadora Flip Ultra

10 March 2008
  • Conclusion: A qualidade do vídeo é boa em baixa resolução. A Flip grava bons vídeo em ambientes de pouca luminosidade. A facilidade de usar não tem igual. A Pure Digital Technologies seguiu os passos da Apple ao desenvolver um produto bastante prático, fácil de usar e barato. Nós não vemos a hora de ver a próxima geração das filmadoras Flip e de outros produtos da Pure.
