Flip Ultra (second gen, black)

 

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.

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

The Ultra HD is Pure Digital's flagship camcorder and carries 8GB of memory in addition to its high definition (720p) recording. Flip also offers the small form factor Flip Mino HD. It commands a thirty dollar price premium for the smaller size, b
