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!
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.
Summary: OK,I have had this camera for less than 2 months,and all of a sudden it just stop working. When i turn it on it immediately turns right back off,I have never dropped,damaged,or spilled anything on this camera,and it just stops working.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this a few weeks ago.. loved it! I used it on a weekend trip a few times.. no more than half hour worth of video. I came home, looked forward to seeing my video and then I realized, my Flip wouldn't turn on. I changed out the batteries.. still nothing. So now I am in the middle of sending it back to Flip for a replacement and hoping they can get my video off it. For a camera that is a month old.. full battery life.. there is no reason it should just not turn on!
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.
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...
