Tiny video recorder for the YouTube generation

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.

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...

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...

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.

To publish directly to YouTube or MySpace, you'll need to create an account for each service and log in. But once you do, you can automatically upload your videos to the Web for private or public viewing with a click of a button. If you're allied to...

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...

PC Pro: Product Reviews: Flip Video Mino

 

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

Consumer review by:

"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.

Product Specifications

Flip Mino is the smallest, sleekest camcorder. Mino combines remarkable video quality and pocket-sized design so you can tell your stories wherever you go. You've never had this much fun with video.
