Easy too use but flipped out when it broke


I bought this flip camera about two years ago and was amazed at the ease of use. The videos were very professional and the best part was how simple they are to download onto the computer. It is not good for distance filming but for our needs it...

Worst example of video recorder


First off, 'Ultra HD' is very misleading. The quality is barely better than 480p, certainly not the 720p you see from the current crop of DSLRs. Second, I have yet to get the FlipShare video program working, so if anyone out there doesn't already have...

Small and disposable

Not really HD, limited lens, short battery life

Flip Video UltraHD is so easy and fun to use


My nine year old daughter loves recording videos of her toys and dogs. She wanted a video camera for Christmas and we ended up getting her the Flip Video UltraHD. She was thrilled and immediately started using it. Unfortunately it didn't come with a...

Flippin' into High Definition!


Note: This review expects readers to understand a little about video cameras and may not go into a lot of detail. Summery: I bought the Flip Ultra HD video camera because my friend and I make YouTube videos. We ...

I think the Flip is amazing


I think the Flip camcorder is one of the best camcorders I have ever had! I have had many. The Flip Camcorder is a non expensive way to make and edit home videos. I love the fact that when you first plug the USB into your PC, the software automatically...

Flip Ultra HD Cam -- Awesome!!


I Looooove my Flip Ultra. The microphone picks up sound so clear and concise, it seems like a professional mic is being used. I film everything and all that I can, from my family, pets, garden, to travel and vacation...because it's just so easy. Just...

Our employee incentive program went away December 31 and we had to use up the "points" we had accumulated before the end of January. I had a fair number of points, but there really wasn't much I wanted in the catalog for what I had. Then I saw The Pure...

You'll "Flip" Over This Camera


I received the Flip Ultra HD Video Camcorder as a present and I am thrilled to own it. I have always wanted a camcorder, but I wanted something simple and easy to operate. The Flip meets those requirements perfectly.

Easy to use; inexpensive; excellent videos; fits in your pocket; intuitive software

Weak battery pack; lousy carry case; no additional memory capability; lacks extensive

Flippin' for Flip Ultra HD.


I have a camcorder, but to be honest it is a pain to use. It has its own case, which has to be hauled too, and I couldn't put stuff onto my computer with it either. I got the idea to start shopping for a camcorder with a hard drive, and that's when I...

so portable and easy to use, not terribly expensive, email vids
