Useless piece of Junk

NJGuy, Amazon
9 May 2011
  • Summary: Does a decent job of shooting basic videos. My biggest gripe is the Zoom feature is poor and limited. volume settings are also not high...other than that, it is easy to use and very handy update Feb 2012 Died after a few months of use...no wonder Cisco closed this line.,..

Dead...After 3 Months

Murphy Crowson "macnrwanda", Amazon
8 May 2010
  • Summary: Flip died after three months. Worked great until then. Awesome concept. Easy to take videos. BUT THEN IT DIED!!! I tried ALL of the tricks to fix it...STILL DEAD. Don't waste your money. Buy a digital camera that takes hd videos like the Canon PowerShot SD780IS 12.1 MP. It's only $70 and won't die after just three months and takes video in HD!

Great camera with a short life span

B.V. "Alexis", Amazon
7 May 2010
  • Summary: I love the convenience. The camera is completely user-friendly, anyone can use it, perhaps even without reading the manual. Connecting it to the computer is also easy, as well as downloading videos and e-mailing them. I'm not technologically savvy, so, if I can use it, anyone can. The only drawback is - no matter how much you stabilize the camera, the image will still appear shaky. You don't see it on the camera screen, but you certainly see it on the computer monitor.

Not a quality made product

Danielle, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: The pics were very pixilated and dark. Flip Ultra's IT tech dept could not get the video to look legible or upload the software.

Miserable Product, Even Worse Customer Service!

John Thompson, Amazon
16 April 2010
  • Summary: This was supposed to be a Christmas present for my teenager and the thing never worked. It would boot up, and then go dark. That was it. I went the rounds with technical support and then customer service. After technical support ignored me long enough, they finally gave up and sent me to customer service. Customer service then claimed they had not received the returned product. After sending the UPS tracking number they finally admitted that they had received yet.

Does not convert video to WMV as advertised

M. Miller, Amazon
22 January 2010
  • Summary: I wanted a camera that would convert files to WMV because the files are smaller and compatible with Windows Media Player. The support section of Flip's website specifically says, in at least two places, that the Flipshare software on the camera will convert the video to WMV. This was the main reason I purchased the camera. When I got the camera I discovered that the software does not convert to WMV.

PLEASE DONT BUY THIS FLIP CAMERA!!!!!!!!!

Debra K. Gallagher, Amazon
12 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought the Flip Ultra before our Disney Vacation the end of December 09. I took it and my heavy duty vhs-c camcorder. I ended up just using the FLIP camera the entire trip bc I didnt want to haul around the big ole camcorder. Flip Ultra was awesome. Easy to use, fit in my fanny pack, I filmed our entire vacation on the flip (which had 120 min of record time). When I got home my troubles began. I loaded the FLIP with the easy usb connection onto my VISTA computer.

Yet to be convinced

A. Yarwood, Amazon
8 January 2010
  • Summary: Flip worked for 5 minutes - plugged it in to TV and it gave up. Numerous calls to Flip helpline which was painful to no resolve. Thank god Amazon came to the rescue and replaced the unit no worries. It should arrive soon and hopefully work.

Need to Return

T. Lewis "item hunter", Amazon
2 January 2010
  • Summary: The Flip isn't working correctly - - spots on the screen! I gave it as a gift. The receiver has contacted Amazon re: an exchange or just reimbursement and they'll purchase another. They aren't having the cooperation I always respected with Amazon. Suggestions????

Infuriating if you have an Apple.

Maggie, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I absolutely loved this camera when I bought it. The video is great and it is super easy to use. The problem is that the flip is not compatible with my Apple desktop. Flip bills itself as being Apple compatible and while you can download the files to the computer hard drive as soon as you try to save the video to disk or move it to your desktop the quality degrades so badly that the video is worthless.
