Summary: Before being purchased by Cisco, Flip video was the Go Pro for the masses. The video quality and sound are equal to the subsequent Go-Pro cameras for a fraction of the cost. I used this camera mounted on my roll bar of a 50's sports racing car for years before Go-Pro and while it doesn't have many of the features that Go-Pro has it was very serviceable camera. This product was abandoned before a quality advertising campaign could boost it into the stratosphere.
Summary: This has by far been the handiest, most versitile, easiest-to-use camera I have ever owned! Although customer service seems to have disappeared since Cisco bought the original company, my camera has never given me a problem. It takes great videos and the editing software makes it easy to pull still shots from video when desired. If you find one, buy it!
Summary: Easy to use!!! Easy to take with you anywhere. I previously owned the 60 minute version but had to replace it because i believe my one year old threw it out:) I loved it so much i had to get another one...this time i chose the 2 hour one...i am so glad i did because the minutes sure go by fast....
Summary: I bought this Flip video to take on a two week European trip. I am completely pleased. It is easy to carry around in pocket or purse. The battery life was good. The pictures are clear and good. I received the camera within a few days. It was new in the box and the price was great. I am completely satisfied.
Summary: I currently have one Flip that I bought in 09 and am considering purchasing another one. It's a great camera that has good video quality, sound, and best of all it's easy to use! Turn it on, press the big red button and you are recording! A few things I don't like about the camera are the lack of editing abilities with the software (like flipping the video) and not being able to fast forward while viewing a video on the camera.
Summary: I was skeptical when I bought this camera thinking it couldn't be that much better than taking video with my cell phone. I was wrong. The only complaint that I have is that if you put it on the big screen the pixels are a little distorted, but honestly that was to be expected. It is so convenient!
Summary: I have grown to LOVE my Flip!!! It has increased 30% in price since I purchased it, but it's still a great deal. It's small and convenient for taking to special events like concerts. And because it was inexpensive, I don't worry or fuss over losing it or damaging it, like I would with my $600 digital camera. It is EXTREMELY easy and user-friendly. You take your movies with a push of a button, then just plug it into your computer.
Summary: I purchased this flip for my 9 year old who LOVES to make movies. I just needed it to be something easy to use and durable. This flip is not the HD version but honestly my son doesn't need that yet. This flip ended up being perfect for our family's needs and I also bought the underwater case which has come in handy several times already.
