Nice, but NOT true HD

 

ts a nice camcorder but way too expensive for what you get.

It is a very nice camcorder. Very easy to use, 720p

No removable storage, limited to 2 hours with 8GB of internal memory ; Not true HD when a zi8 is true 1080p HD and 720p @ 60FPS for about $110 ; Not very configurable ; Only 2x Digital Zoom! Pathetic! It's only software and they could easily increase...

Wife likes it.

 

Worth the purchase. Take time to charge before initial use. Seach newegg for: male female usb cable

Compact, solid, easy to use. Wife likes it

Pick up a male-female USB cable protect the FLIP when connecting it to a PC. As most reviews have surely stated, the USB interface on this device does not EASILY connect to most USB ports ; Minus 1 egg for this fault

usb doesn't fit notebooks

 

I thought i had researched this device pretty thoroughly, but I didn't anticipate this.

very pretty; excellent concept

The usb connector didn't fit either of my Lenovo thinkpads or a Dell notebook. I found this out right away, because the pretty little thing didn't come on immediately (as the instructions said it would) when I pushed the power button. So I tried to...

good for small screeen only

 

I returned this mainly because the picture quality was sub par when connected to a large LCD via HDMI. It looked as if I was watching a youtube video on a big screen (pixelated) Not the quality I was hoping for to capture family vacation video. It says...

good, easy to use software ; good battery life ; small size

picture quality is only good for youtube or blogs ; small screen is tough to keep moving objects in frame (read: kids) ; narrow angle lens, not good for indoors if you have no room to back up ; zoom buttons are easy to push by accident

Consumer review by:

USB problem still not fixed

 

I took a chance on this product after reading a few reviews that stated the USB sizing problem was fixed. It's not. I am disappointed because the camera is a nice size and has good fit & finish otherwise.

Small. Good fit & finish

The USB problems hasn't been fixed. The camera will fit into my desktop, but not into my Apple laptop. It is going back for a replacement

Consumer review by:

USB Issue...

 

Small, extremely portable video camera. Fun to use

Poor manufacturing or design. The USB fitting is slightly off size and has to be "convinced" to fit any USB port

Consumer review by:

worth it

 

All in all, I think $180 well spent. I keep it in my pocket at all times, and in less than two weeks have already gotten some golden eggs with it. If you have been thinking of

720p ; small ; simple ; fast and easy upload ; good amount of battery and storage

audio ; you can't really add anything to it

Consumer review by:

Defective USB

 

Looks exactly like what I expected. Newegg provided their usual fast service

I have not been able to set it up ; The USB plug is manufactured to the wrong dimensions and cannot be plugged in to a PC to set it up and download the required Flip software to the PC. The manufacturer is aware of the problem. It is annoying to have...

Consumer review by:

Very Good but not Perfect

 

As noted by other reviewers, this model "Flip" camera has problems with the flip-out USB plug. It's either a touch too big or just a hair too small; I'm not sure which yet. Of my half-dozen PC's, it plugs nicely into three, has to be jammed into one,...

Very small, VERY light; smaller than shirt-pocket sized. Clear, crisp video

Problems as noted with the USB plug that "Flips" out. Not particularly good with fast motion

Consumer review by:

Usb did not work

 

Why would you sell a product that the usb had so many problems Flip? I wouldn't of got this except i figured they had it fixed on the second gen.NOPE

Takes great video in bright rooms or outdoors. Its very simple to use

The usb would not fit into my Macbook or Man Mini nut i had a usb extension laying around which it fit into
