Flip Video MinoHD (Second Generation) Camcorder Review


Best-in-class low-light performance ; Outstanding build quality and design

No still-photo capture ; No removable storage or battery

Flip Video MinoHD pocket camcorder (2nd generation)


The second-generation Flip Video MinoHD doesn't represent a huge jump in specs and features.
