Quick and Handy


This is ideal for someone that doesn't want to be too serious about footage. It's great for vloggers or people capturing family memories.

From off and in pocket to on and recording in 12 seconds. The video quality is suprizing and the functionality of the camcorders auto software works well even in low light. I've only had to replace batteries a couple of times.

Video is recorded using MP4 standard. That makes using in some editing suites a chore.

Very nice


This is a great camera for the casual user. It's the one you buy for the family member who might not be too tech savvy. The super fast start up time makes it great for catching those moments where your kid is doing something really cute or your buddy...

This camera is ultra compact, sleek and sturdy feeling. It's insanely simple to use. Perfect for the non-techie user but as someone who is very tech savvy, I like enjoy a lot as well.

Only has 2X zoom. You can't expand the memory either, no SD slot!

Easy to Use & Edit, annoying mouse click noises


Please, Pure Digital, allow us to disable the annoying "click" mouse button noise!

Low cost, easy to use ; most friendly to upload on YouTube, AOL, etc. Uses AA Batteries (only a benefit if you use rechargeables)

Uses AA batteries bad for environment if you do not use rechargeables. Very annoying "click" noise with every click of your mouse cannot disable ; no control over software (it's built in)

For Easy use ”


This product is a tempting buy. If this will be your first camcorder, or just for simple blogs, then it holds the simplicity you need. However when it comes to fairing as a good camcorder among others it lacks. First off, it has two settings audio and...

Flip Video Ultra is perfect for close up pictures to post on web ”


The Flip Video Ultra is great to use for close up pictures to post on Facebook or Myspace or whatnot, the sound recording is pretty good. It is extremely easy to use and download the video clips onto the web. The picture loses quality when you use the...

Looks can be deceiving. ”


I actually got this camera for Christmas. I was a little surprised, I got it from a family member that doesn't normally buy things like this, so I'm like, "oh great, a piece of junk video camera to stick in a drawer or closet". Boy was I wrong. I...
