Summary: My children wanted to create U-tube video's. This is an excellent, affordable easy to use camcorder. I comes with basic editing software that streamlines saving, emailing and posting to the internet.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Simple Controls
Summary: Very cool! Compact (fits in your pocket without being heavy), turns on and shoots in an instant. Easy to figure out for those of us who didn't grow up with electronics toys. No need to read any instructions. Very clear picture automatically shows on your computer via USB port and e-mails very easily. Email receivers are given a site to click on rather than having to download.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Compact, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Lightweight, Simple Controls
Summary: Gave this to our 17 year old teen who's has been making short video clips with her digital camera and piecing them together into longer films. The Flip is ideal because it can capture up to an hour's worth of film. The quality of the video and sound are okay -- the images are not as sharp as what she can get from a digital camera. The quality of the sound is about the same. Ability to zoom in is a nice feature.
Summary: This easiy fits in my pocket and I can pull it out whenever I want and video the kids. The battery life is pretty impressive. Video quality is good enough for my purposes. The only thing that doesn't work as well as I'd like is the delete option. Often I want to delete a video and seem to be pressing the correct buttons for delete and in the end it says "not deleted.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls
Summary: The Flip Mino works exactly as advertised. Simple to use and up and running in seconds. Built in software nice feature as opposed to having to load off of a CD. This is a great little product and nice alternative to having to lug a larger camcorder.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls
Summary: I bought the Flip Video Mino to be able to very easily shoot and share family events, and it does this perfectly. The compromise is the relatively limited video quality, zoom, etc. If you need high quality video, this isn't for you. If you want a small, easy to use camera that makes sharing extra simple, this is the perfect solution.
