Suppose you're going for a walk one day, and across the street, you happen to spot Steve Jobs. He's getting out of his top-secret iCar and strapping on his top-secret iJetPack. Sensing the opportunity of a lifetime, you pull our your digital camcorder,...

Convenient and portable design ; simple, fast, and elegant user interface ; nice viewfinder screen ; software installers built into the unit itself ; supports Mac OS X in addition to Windows ; includes TV-out cable ; very high quality video with high...

No optical zoom ; digital zoom limited to 2x ; no lighting

Measuring 4.17" x 2.16" x 1.25" and weighing 4.9 ounces, the Flip Ultra is a small, rectangular unit with an understated appearance. Versions are available in black, white, orange, and pink (but not blue, strangely enough). On the front, you'll find...

Flip Video Ultra Edition camcorder review

 

Ever since "happy slapping" caused a media furore in 2005, video on the move has been in the public eye. But filming with a phone is such a bore and camcorders are too big and expensive. What's the solution? Well Flip Video think they have the answer,...

Simple concept, portable, great fun

No lens cover, limited software shortcuts, audio buzz

A replacement for a camcorder this is not, but for capturing those passing moments and having fun with video, it’s a great little device

With the likes of YouTube encouraging the point, shoot and share approach, the Flip Video Ultra camcorder looks ideal. Updated with video review.

Like the Vado, the Flip shoots at 640 x 480 and 30 frames/sec, which is great for YouTube compatibility but not so good if you want to burn a PAL DVD of your footage, as that will be running at 25 frames/sec and quality-reducing frame interpolation...

The Flip is the rebellious toddler of the camcorder world. It's spawned a new category of budget MPEG-4 video cameras that, while not intended to replace a more expensive digital camcorder, still provide quality far superior to that of a mobile phone....

This is not a toy. An MPEG-4 video camera that lives up to the hype.

Flip Video Ultra review

 

The Flip Video Ultra makes simplicity a virtue and Internet video-sharing a doddle. If you have any aspirations beyond the Web, a compact camera would be a better alternative for the price. Still, video is better than we expected -- just a shame about...

Simplicity ; Better than expected video

Small screen ; Muddy mono sound ; Still not as cheap as it should be

If you have any plans beyond YouTube or MySpace, similar money will get you high definition with most of today's compact cameras: the compacts in Casio Exilim range also have YouTube modes, as well as a greater range of video options and the option to...

The Flip Ultra camcorder features a 1.5-inch TFT display and, thanks to a 1/4 inch VGA CMOS sensor, captures video at a 640 x 480 resolution at 30fps. It also boasts a 2x digital zoom, powers up in four seconds and has a battery life of four hours. It...

A great choice for pocket-money Polanskis, the Flip Ultra lets you make YouTube movies with significantly less effort than tying your shoelaces. You can still trip up on its cut-down feature list, though, especially now that some digital cameras are...

We are currently looking for some easy to use, inexpensive video cameras for use with students. Having been disappointed with the cheapest Busbi cameras we decided to go up to what is probably the next level of camera the flip. The Flip Ultra Series...
