Flip Mino Review

 

Flip, a small startup based in San Francisco has their second video camera offering in the new Flip Mino, replacing the previous ever-popular Flip Camcorder which has sold more than 1 million units since launch.

Easy to use; includes editing software; social sharing features; compact size

Expensive; poor sound; below-average picture quality; bad zoom

if you're buying it for yourself as your primary camera, spend a little more and get something different.

Pure Digital Flip Mino Camcorder

 

When it comes to YouTube-friendly pocket camcorders, the Mino is king, but for a price.

Good video quality, Sleek, pocketable, easy to use

Slow and buggy video-uploading software, Pricey ; buttons too touch-sensitive

Flip Mino Review

 

Pure Digital's newest addition to the Flip family of digital camcorders is the Flip Mino . The Mino is 40% smaller than the old Flip Ultra and looks a lot better as well. Available in black or white, the Mino easily fits into any shirt pocket and is...

Highly convenient camcorder produces so-so video

 

Although the video quality produced by the Flip Mino is anything but pristine, this affordable and useful camera-with its go-anywhere, shirt-pocket convenience and simple operation-could turn out to be one of your favorite gadgets.

Completely convenient ; dead-simple operation ; built-in USB connector ; easy-to-use though limited software ; direct import of movies into iPhoto '08

Video quality isn't that great

The back of the unit holds a bright 1.5-inch LCD screen, a red Record button, indented Play/Pause and Trash buttons, and four touch-sensitive buttons arrayed around the Record button. The right and left buttons are for choosing movies stored on the...

Review: Flip Video Mino

 

In today's hurried world, it's not uncommon for many people to use their digital camera or even camera phone to record life's moments as movies. While the quality is normally not on par with traditional video cameras, nothing beats the convenience of...

Flip Mino

 

The Flip Mino is the latest addition to Firebox's range of miniature Net-focused camcorders. Like its popular predecessors, it combines basic video fu...

Simplistic user interface, small and attractive design, inbuilt USB jack

Only slightly cheaper than a fully fledged camcorder, limited functions and memory

With its rechargeable battery and ultra-sleek design, the Mino is probably the best Flip cam yet. However, with an RRP of over $300 it is perhaps a teensy bit overpriced for what it offers.

Video for even smaller pockets

But, and there is a but, things don't seem to have changed much. We're 6-months on from the Ultra and we are basically looking at the same thing. In the meantime the pocket camcorder world has become a much busier place and critically, we are now...
