Flip Ultra (second gen, white)

 

Editors' note: You may have heard that Cisco will no longer be producing the Flip camcorder products. However, as long as they're still available on the market, you may want to consider buying one anyway. If so, here are some issues you should consider...

Decent video for a VGA budget mini camcorder; easy to use; good low-light performance; 4GB memory holds 2 hours of video; FlipShare software is compatible with both Mac and Windows machines.

No memory card slot; no rechargeable battery included.

Flip Video has made some modest improvements to the original Ultra--but it's only worth buying at a reasonable discount off its list price.

Pure Digital Flip UltraHD Camcorder Review

 

After releasing an HD version of its Flip Mino camcorder late last year, Pure Digital has finally provided the same update to its larger Flip Ultra models. The Flip UltraHD, which features a new video compression engine, 8GB of internal flash memory,...

The Flip UltraHD (MSRP $199.99) provides the same easy user experience that is the standard of all Flip camcorders. Its lack of manual controls, menus, or special settings make it a very simple product to use and learn. The Flip UltraHD's improved...

Pure Digital Flip Ultra Camcorder Review

 

The Pure Digital's original Flip camcorder, released earlier this year, created an unusual amount of buzz by positioning itself well below the price point of traditional point-and-shoot camcorders. For the first time, a company truly succeeded in...

Pure Digital saw a gap in the camcorder market and filled it. The story of its success is no more or less complex than that. It saw two important trends: online video is becoming more prevalent; and devices capable of recording video can be...

Pure Digital Flip UltraHD Camcorder Review

 

Years and years ago, I remember when my dad bought our family's first camcorder. It was quite the premium product at the time, especially since we opted for the Sony Handycam. After taxes, an extra battery, and a couple of tapes, we racked up a bill of...

Other specs include Flip Video Engine 3.5, 30fps progressive scan, 9.0Mbps average bitrate, H.264 video compression, MP4 file format, automatic white balance, automatic exposure control, f/2.4 fixed focus, built-in speaker, tripod mount, and HDMI output.

Review: Pure Digital Flip Ultra HD

 

The headlining Flip camera gets HD and is better for the move.

HD video at a still-affordable price ; Good form factor; HDMI out is new ; Very user-friendly hardware and software ; Much more storage; longer recording than Mino HD ; Replaceable battery

No optical zoom; same image quality as before ; FlipShare is quick but still limited

Pure Digital Flip UltraHD

 

A significant improvement over last year's model, with HD support and easy websharing

Great low light sensitivity; Extremely simple to use

No manual controls whatsoever; Small attery and slow recharge rate

Pure Digital Flip UltraHD pocket camcorder

 

The Flip UltraHD improves an already excellent line of pocket camcorders with a wider-angle lens, better low-light footage, more storage capacity, and...

User-replaceable battery, HDMI, sharp image quality, good colour accuracy, 8GB internal storage

USB connector may be problematic for some systems

The Flip UltraHD is a better performer than the MinoHD and we prefer it, thanks to its doubled storage capacity, sharper-coloured footage, better zoom, user-replaceable battery and HDMI-out port.

"It broke and tech support said it was "defective"."

 

I found a fix for the freezing problem on this website - http://www.signparrot.com/how-to-fix-flip-ultra-hd-camera/

Great video quality and sound. Portable.

Started to freeze, couldn't record anything, had to remove batteries to power it off. It was bad and I nearly tossed it out in the trash. I know a lot of people are having issues with this camera.

It can hang with the big dogs

 

For the money you just can't go wrong with this camera. I have big camera but now find myself using the flip more than my 3000 dollar camera. I have shot live footage of concerts and the picture was clear. Sound was great standing away from speakers. I...

Small, great pictures, professional look, easy to transfer in your computer, great sound quality in right environment

Battery dies quickly, no secondary battery
