Gadgetell Review: Flip Mino HD

 

Quick Review What is it? The Flip Mino HD is a tiny, pocketable, HD camcorder by PureDigital. What's Cool: Very easy to use. Form factor makes it easy to carry around. HD video quality is okay. What's Not: Shiny surface is a fingerprint magnet. Low...

The Flip Mino HD is very easy to use. Since there is just one shooting mode, you won't be fiddling with menus and settings. The small screen does a fine job as a viewfinder and can be used to see what you just recorded. It would have been nice if...

The Flip MinoHD is a compact, cellphone-sized, digital video camera that is capable of capturing high definition video. It focuses on simple operation and sharing options. I've had one for a couple of weeks now and, generally speaking, am very...

Make no mistake, the Flip cameras are not your high-end consumer cam. The price tag should tell you that. No, what the Flip does is to bring convenience and reasonable quality video to your pocket. Additionally, it makes it easy to process and share...

The Flip Mino HD is an interesting proposition and great HD camera under specific scenarios. A couple weeks ago, I was able to review the Flip Mino in its standard definition format. The Flip Mino HD is like its SD sibling with the exception that it...

Flip Mino HD Review: If it Ain't Broke...

 

Flip's followup to the successful, caveman-easy Mino HD is fundamentally the same product, slightly better. The improvements are welcome, but there are still some issues I wish Flip would address.

As it's packing the same sensor as the first Mino HD, this new version shares the same strengths and suffers from the same flaws: Good in solid lighting and close-ups, but noisy in low-light and choppy while panning. It still can't take stills, there's...

Can Flip keep pace in the HD stakes?

With gadgets moving on so fast, you can't help but notice that the Flip Mino HD doesn't offer as much as you'll get on competitor models - you'll have to make do with less memory, a smaller screen and no options. On the plus side is price, coming in at...

We reviewed Flip's original Mino camcorder in What's New, Shopper 254.

Although ultimate image quality and features are sacrificed on the altar of price and pocketability, the MinoHD should be on casual videographers shortlists.

Price ; Pocketability ; Easy-to-use FlipShare software ; Decent video quality for the price

Capacitive buttons ; Low quality screen ; No memory expansion ; Requires a steady, steady hand

Those who can't live without more storage, HDMI output or a larger, higher resolution should hang out for the 8GB MinoHD that's available overseas and may or may not be coming here. Here's hoping that there's a model on the drawing board with image...

Review: Flip MinoHD

 

Last year CyberShack was deciding if the Flip Mino should be the most underwhelming gadget of the year. It was a mini camcorder with a steep price point, and although we decided against handing out any sort of awards, it certainly would have been in...

Portability, HD, Easy to load software

Limited functionality, small LCD screen for playback, price

The overall video content is very good, as it should be. Where this device is let down is in some of the little things, and one big thing. The little things include the aforementioned weak zoom function, the small LCD screen, which is not great at...
