Preforms better than expected

 

Received for Christmas as a gift, Sister and I both got one. We played with units after dinner, and had a great time with them. I was going to send back, being that I felt it was nothing more than a toy. I was glad of the return policy, for I would...

Right from the start, it said it need a firmware. I said yes, and it went onto the Internet, and downloaded what it needed. Told me step by step what I need to do, and when. Unplugged, and replugged unit back in, and was up and running, Idiot proof...

Batter life is about 2 hours of use. Not so much of a con, but some may want to use a nimh batter, Rechargeable. No memory slot, or expansion available. Ad say DVD quality: I wouldn't go all there, but it is surprisingly good for such a small and easy...

Flip video Ultra Black 1/4" VGA CMOS sensor 1.5" 70K LCD Smooth multi-step 2X Camcorder

 

This could be resolved by mfg, it's not the the diameter of the button that causes the problem its because its "recessed" A button with more "depth"?

Works as advertised, size of average cell phone (actually fits well in a cell phone belt clip) Would recomend the Ultra over the standard version

The record/play button is sometimes a problem (unless you really have small fingers) I have to make sure I press it with my fingernail to get it to respond

flip camcorders are good for its price ”

 

To start with, I got the flip camcorder as a promotional gift from TD bank by opening a checking account with their manhattan branch. I read few reviews and since I didn't have any camcorder I went on with the offer. The flip camcorder is very light...

An excellent camera if you can find a good price ”

 

Flip cameras came in to the market almost too late. Before them, camcorders had been dominated by designs that were, honestly, too complex for most uses. The Flip camera completely rethinks the concept with an eye towards simplicity, which works...

Flip it to believe it :-) ”

 

The flip is just too good for a video camera. To tell you the truth I got it as a promotional offer from TD bank by opening a new checking account. I read the reviews for this camcorder and thought lets get it for free since it had good reviews...
