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...

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 pocket camcorder


Pure Digital's UltraHD packs more punch than the Flip Mino HD

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.

Revolutionary camera


This package is incredibly easy to use. Great for web video, classroom use and the like. Software is limited, but it does what it needs to do and is fairly intuitive and does just about everything you'd want it to do. Sound is surprisingly good for...

Compact, easy to use, replacable AA batteries rather than rechargable. H.264 codec provides great image

No memory slot; when camera is full, you have to transfer your video to a computer before you can use it again. H.264 codec limits editing options to bundled software; can't use Windows Movie Maker anymore, like you could with 1st generation Flips
