Summary: Picture quality, I'd give 4 out of 5. it's really nice and only slightly grainy. Sound quality, 4.5 out of 5. it captures sound pretty well, and i actually like the way my singing voice comes out on it (this is rare). i don't feel the need to yell to be heard in videos. Controls/function, i'd give 5/5 stars for being very user-friendly. i've never used the full 2 hours of recording capacity. I've never had any problems using the USB on the camera, either.
Summary: I really loved this - it took good video - good enough for my purposes. It's not an HD one but it suited us. Hooked up to the TV and the kids loved watching the videos we took. Then after having it for about 18 months, it just stopped working. Replaced batteries - didn't help. Nothing. So I'm not real happy about that. I am buying a new video camera but not a Flip.
Summary: My flip was supposed to be brand new. No where on the post did it say "used." Now I have a flip with a scratch on the screen. I'm very disappointed with this. However, I'm happy with my two-day shipping service. i got what i paid for on that part.
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 purchased this for personal use for myself and my 8 year old daughter. The camera is easy to use. Simply turn it on, and press the red button to start and stop recording. You can start and stop the recording as many times as you would like, creating many small videos. My daughter took to it right away with no explaination of how to use it. She and her cousins created many short videos.
Summary: I bought this camera for my daughter for her birthay, she's 10. I have to say I thought the simplisity of this product was a negetive because it felt as if it was an expensive toy. But when we begun to play and film, I think the simplicity was a definite upgrade compared to other HD cams. Not only because my 10 year old daugter can operate it with ease. It allows you to capture moments and life speed. your not telling anyone to wait, hold on, let me get this going.
Summary: I actually won a flip video...and my 13 yr old son immediately began to use it. I loved to use it as well...super easy right out of the box, and to download to the computer extra easy as well. We have taken videos and created snapshots, and have put videos onto facebook. I am sure there are more features like editing that we just havent' gotten into. Then the little sister got her hands on the video and now we have 2 fighting over one flip video..
