Not the color I asked for!

katcastillo, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for my daughter for her Christmas gift and she wanted the color blue as shown and when I received it it was white and blue on the side and I don't think my daughter would be happy with this purchase considering she was very specific about the color she wanted. I don't understand why they sent me a different color when it said blue online and when it came the color was something else!? Come on ya'll do your job right!

Lasted 1 month

MothLadder, Amazon
23 January 2011
  • Summary: I got this for my daughter for Christmas. It is now January 23rd. After a not-unpleasant discussion with a Flip tech support person online I am now in possession of an RMA (return) form. I wish it had lasted longer. I wish the tech support person had more than one trick up his sleeve. It was a good little camera while it lasted... for this price it should have lasted longer.

junky camera, bad tech support

GPN, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: A somewhat-sturdy-yet-junky camera- like an expensive, good quality disposable. the lens broke, and o easy way to fix it without pretty much paying the cost of a new camera. Buy one and use it when you are going to a seminar or even where you need a good camera that takes AA batteries and does a good job- but remember, its a "re-sposable" camera. Flip might want to consider giving awards when someone's camera (someone that USES it!) actually survives the 12 month mark.

not pleased

Catarina A. Blair "momof4", Amazon
14 March 2010
  • Summary: This is a great little camera. Very easy to use, very easy to carry along and my daughter loved it for the short time she used it. If fell off her desk, not a tall desk, not onto a concrete floor mind you, onto her rug... and it stopped working. It's extremely fragile. Otherwise it was great.

One huge flaw that affects all of your videos

Ryan Young, Amazon
22 October 2009
  • Summary: I've been using this camera for a few months and have noticed one major problem. All of the video it takes is somewhat zoomed in. Even if you use the controls to zoom all the way out, the video appears to be zoomed in. In other words, it's the opposite of a wide angle lens. This is terrible when shooting in close quarters.

Flip UltraHD performance

Amazon Customer "Spartan 301", Amazon
9 May 2010
  • Summary: This camcorder produces excellent movie results with exceptional sound capture. Pity therefore that it is spoiled by woeful battery performance. The battery pack supplied steadfastly refuses to charge (a common problem apparently). In spite of taking the corrective actions suggested on various websites, after 2 minutes charging it continues to display the message "charging paused - check battery pack" Consequently I am reduced to using standard AA batteries, which...
