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...

Flip Video Mino


We've seen the Ultra, now here's the Mino - a slimmer version of Flip's pocket camcorder.

However, whereas you can pick up new power cells for the Ultra virtually anywhere in the world, the Mino will require a nearby USB socket and time to recharge, as this is the only option. No USB charger is included in the box, either. So you will...

Flip Video Mino review


In case you didn't have enough reasons to worry about videos of your escapades showing up online, Flip Video has made video posting easier than ever. The Flip Mino, the latest in the Flip series of pocket camcorders, is smaller and sleeker than the...

The Flip Mino is sleek, pocketable and easy to use. The video quality also excels. However, the somewhat pricey Mino's video-uploading software can be slow and buggy and the buttons are overly sensitive.

Flip Video Mino


This is the second incarnation of the rather good Flip Video Ultra. This unit is smaller slimmer and aimed at the teenager and twenties market. Everything else works the same as the original product launched in the UK last year.

It is 10x5x2cm and weights just 75grams. The unit comes with memory to give an hour of video. This is 640x480 but it is truly excellent quality. It can be shown on a TV using the composite leads provided that fit into a TV (2.5mm socket) on the left...

The easiest video camera you'll ever use, but it's pricey and the feature set is very basic.

Short Lived


We gave this to my 11 year old daughter for Christmas 2010. It worked great for a few weeks, then stopped work in early February 2011. FWIW, she's typically pretty careful with things. Ultimately it wasn't worth the money.

Small, convenient, easy to use, reasonably priced.

Stopped working within two months of use.

This was a Christmas present for my daughter. She wanted a camera and this was at a price point I could afford. Now I will have to spend more than I can afford to get her one that works because Santa wouldn't let her down. Thanks Newegg. Had to pay...

Device arrived with partial charge. Crashed while I was setting date/time for my daughter. Plugged into multiple computers and powered hubs, but it would not charge.

Great for the $$


Bought for my 7 year old daughter. She loves it.

Easy to use and transfer to PC. Great price - bought on sale here for $37.99

The USB connector is a little flimsy.
