Flip UltraHD review:

 

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 , and if not,...

Shoots 720p HD video; high-quality video for its class; easy to use; uses rechargeable AA batteries; FlipShare software compatible with both Mac and Windows machines.

Somewhat pricey; no memory card slot; no cable included for HD output to HDTVs.

The Flip Video UltraHD may not be the sexiest mini camcorder out there, but it offers a respectable feature set and some of the best video we've seen from this type of cheap, YouTube-friendly camcorder.

FlipShare software for both Windows and Mac, high-quality video in its class, and shoots 720p HD video

No memory card slot for external storage; does not ship with HDMI cable; a bit more expensive

If you need one of the best high-definition and easy camcorder, then go for – Flip Video Ultra HD. However, it is much heavier than the MinoHD due to AA batteries and lacks still capture mode. You can also check the other better choices – Creative Vado...

Flip UltraHD

 

A little over a year ago, I reviewed the Flip MinoHD camcorder and gave it a glowing recommendation. Since then, the MinoHD has been by my side for a ton of daily video clips. I've recorded more video in the past year than I've recorded in the previous...

The Flip UltraHD is a solid handheld video camera. It’s a stellar performer that is simple and quick to use. The inclusion of the FlipShare software makes it a step above the many of the other handheld options out there.

Ever sense Sony introduced Betamax there has been some variation of a camcorder device on the market. Over the past 8 years most of those devices have started to move to recording to digital media hard drives, flash cards, and even saving digital files...

So along with getting my butt kicked by people who play video games a lot more than me at MML, I also had a chance to put the Flip UltraHD to the test. I was very impressed with the portability of the flip. Not to mention the fact that while being that...
