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: This little digital camcorder is awesome! It's not meant for hours of recording; it's ideal for short little clips (think of the Flip television commercials)that you would post to your Facebook account, or to a personal blog. It's extremely easy to use and transfer videos to your computer. It takes two AA batteries and they last a long time (not like AA's in a regular digital camera that eats them up).
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.
