Video: Flip Video Mino

 

Tiny video recorder for the YouTube generation

Expert review by:

Flip Video Mino (black)

 

The Flip Video Mino is the fourth generation of Pure Digital's popular straight-to-Web mini camcorder, designed to make shooting and sharing low-resolution videos very easy. Thinner, smaller, and lighter than its older and less expensive sibling, the...

Ultraslim yet functional design; easy to use; relatively high-quality sound and video for its class; one-touch video uploading to YouTube and AOL.

A bit expensive; no SD/MMC card expansion slot; rechargeable battery isn't removable or replaceable.

Despite some minor flaws, Pure Digital's Flip Video Mino is the best mini camcorder for straight-to-Web video currently available--but it also costs more, and it can't match the features of a video-savvy point-and-shoot camera.

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...

Pure Digital's Flip Video mino

 

What does a company do when it makes a highly successful DV camcorder that fits in the palm of your hand and shoots surprisingly high quality 640x480 resolution video? At less than $200? Well, it shrinks the next version, adds some cool sharing...

A cool thing about the Flip Video software is the capability to play your videos in your library, grab stills from the video, as well as give the videos a real name (as opposed to VID000013), and even edit the clips. Another cool feature to the Flip...

"Camera arrived and will not turn on or charge."

 

No Pros, camera does not work.

I bought this product hoping it would be a tiny HD video camera, but for the limited features it has to offer, it is actually quite large (about the size of a large cell phone) and feels quite cheaply made.

"Almost there"

 

I do wish the quality were a bit better. It's great and all - I'm amazed by it - this tiem next year we'll all have some new technology anyway - so it's great for right now - it's an impulsive product for impulsive people looking to entertain...

It's a solidly designed product. Well priced. Like the quality though it can be beat. Has a new wide angle lens. Has casing for wet weather. It's small, very light, easy to take out anywhere. Mounts to a bike or a helmet if you want.

the camera weighs more than the support a usb arm can provide. It's a little SLOW TO BOOT UP - not exactly point and shoot - it still takes a few seconds. No flash. No external memory.

Cheap price if you know where to look!

 

I love this little camcorder but I wished I had waited to buy it until I started carrying it with Avon. It's only $89.00 right now with free shipping and handling. www.youravon.com/roverton I love being able to plug it into my computer and send videos...

The Flip Mino is a nice size and has a cheap price if you look around

Their customer service sucks but if you purchase it from Avon, they have a 100% satisfaction return policy on products
