Summary: The Flip Video Ultra makes simplicity a virtue and Internet video-sharing a doddle. If you have any aspirations beyond the Web, a compact camera would be a better alternative for the price. Still, video is better than we expected -- just a shame about the sound
Pros: Simplicity; better than expected video.
Cons: Small screen; muddy mono sound; still not as cheap as it should be.
Excerpt: If you are interested in recording videos, but don't require or need the complexities of a high-end camera, then you could check out the Flip Ultra Video Recorder, which is as simple as it gets when it comes to recording videos with which to share online or with friends/family.
Conclusion: This is a concept we like – it is so simple to shoot and share video with this pocketable device. The approach is easier than using a mobile phone and the results are better, so you are more likely to do it. Also, you can go from pocket to filming in seconds, so you don’t miss the moment.
Pros: Simple concept, portable, great fun
Cons: No lens cover, limited software shortcuts, audio buzz
