Flip Video Ultra (60 minutes, Magenta)

 

At the time of this writing, the best selling camcorder at Amazon.com isn't a model from Sony, Canon, or Panasonic. It happens to be the Flip Video Ultra, the third iteration of Pure Digital Technologies' simple plug-and-play video camera that features...

With its Flip Ultra series, Pure Digital has upgraded the design, video quality, viewing LCD, and software of its lightweight video camera that makes it very easy to capture and share low-resolution video via e-mail and the Web; we also appreciated...

No SD/MMC card expansion slot; don't expect video quality to match that of a MiniDV camcorder's. The Muvee editing features only work with PCs, not Macs.

With improved video quality, a slightly trimmer design, and upgraded software package, the Flip Video Ultra is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the emerging low-end digital camcorder category.

The Flip Video Pocket Production Studio! $$$ WORTH IT $$$$

 

This pocket sized camera is absolutely amazing. The picture quality is unbelievably good for such a small, inexpensive device. I had a hard time wrapping my head around how they can squeeze so much quality into such a tiny device.

awesome quality, lightweight, built - in usb

all plastic, poor zoom

My Classroom's Newest Toy: The Flip Video Ultra Camcorder!

 

I teach 7th Grade in a Junior High School.  And seeing 210 12 and 13 year old kids every day, I get a pretty good feel for what they like, what they don't like, and how they take care of things.  So when my principal, who's a bit of a techie herself,...

Great size and price, easy to use, moderate quality video for a super-cheap price

No tapes, DVDs, or cables required; small size; good battery life; adequate video/sound

Good value for the money spent, Very User Friendly

 

THE GOOD STUFF: This little camera is so cute. Whenever I use it people always mistake it for a digital camera and are shocked to learn it's a camcorder. The Flip is light weight and small enough to fit in a little purse or pocket. It's very easy to...

Small, light weight, user friendly, plugs right into your computer, software included

Limited zoom, software only has a few effects, doesn't work well in dim light

Small, high quality images, long battery life, solid construction, easy to use

I would like a longer record time, or the ability to upgrade the memory
