Received my flip today (1 day late, but royal mail’s fault, not amazon’s)i have been looking round for a digital camcorder, some over £100. As i didn’t want to spend a lot i saw this one and heard good things about it. Good things i can agree with. Came in a nice stylish box (first impressions are important to me), and lifts out nicely with the flip on top and underneath you get x2 aa batteries, video cable, pouch, cord and manuals etc. Batteries easily go in the front panel by unlocking it from the bottom and sliding the front down. Once the batteries are in, it’s ready to go. Switch it on from the side, set the date, and then hit recordplug it in via usb, installs in a few seconds and you can access all your video files just like you would browse a usb drive or any other memory card. You can then either copy, edit, burn your files. The quality i was impressed with.

Flip’n briliant piece of kit. Just got it out of box and tried it out seems good to me easy to use quality seem very good for size of it going to a beatles tribute next weekend so i will try it out for real next week i am a bit of a techno wiz so it just up my street i bought it because of it’s size mainly look’s well made i think flip is short for flippen briliant.

I found the flipcam a very convenient and efficient little video camera. On a weeks holiday at christmas in germany it produced a comprehensive record of our visit using only 30 minutes of its 1 hour capacity. The editing programme that is built in to the flipcam is excellent.

Flip f260b ultra video digital camcorder is fool proof. This product is a simple easy to use and feels of good quality. It is small enough to carry in pocket about the size of an old mobile phone. The software is built in as is the usb connector so when you have videod you just plug in to usb and follow instructions on sceen, no discs to load very simple. A video can be filmed and emailed in less than 5 mins even by a fool like me, its that easy. Also when you switch it on it is ready to record in less than 3 seconds. Only down side is video quality not great.

My flip arrived in the post this morning and it’s incredibly simple to use. You don’t even need instructions as it’s so easy – i was recording in just a couple of minutes. The software supplied is also very straight forward – i had recorded and edited a mini movie just 40 minutes after the postman dropped my flip off. Uploading to the web was also simple to do. I expect i will probably invest in some new software soon, as i would like to be able to do a little bit more in the way of editing than the supplied software allows. However it is more than enough to get you started and for people who want to keep things simple it’s ideal. The flip records well indoors, even in low light with the curtains closed, but i expect it will struggle at night as there is no built in light. It’s small enough to slip into a pocket or handbag and very light weight. Also better image quality recording than my mobile phone – none of that blurring that you often see on phone cameras.

Flip F260B-UK Video Ultra Series Digital Camcorder – Black (60 mins) : Flip camera, great sound quality and picture quality very good. It came with batteries which i inserted. After second time of using and after about 30 minutes recording time the battery died and i ended up with a wasted interview which i could not repeat. Another girl had a similar camera but i noticed it came with rechargeables. I would say buy this camera but always carry spare batteries and if you hear a little bleep that will be the camera switching itself off. Flip f260b-uk video ultra series digital camcorder – black (60 mins).

Well one would think it is no good. But in fact we use it for videos on all our properties whyen doing inventories, works a charm.

Best videocam i ever bought. Don’t even need the instructions. Why they are saying the flip is dead i do not know. I am thinking of getting a new one so i hope it’s not. I’ve had cameras, videocams. Whatever but i’ve never got on with them as well as i do this one. I hope they don’t quit making them as i will be very sad.

Great camera for recording children’s learning but have had 2 now and both have developed a faulty on / off switch at age 16 months. Cisco have refused to replace as it is out of warrantee. Flip video ultra camcorder 2nd generation with 4gb memory – black.

Flip ultra camcorder review. The flip camera is one of the best camcorders out there at the moment and this basic model is just as good, although if you can, i would pay a few pound extra for the hd flip camera as this has more video time and a rechargeable battery too and not to mention hd quality video playback. But even this basic flip camera is ideal for anyone wanting to try out a small easy to use camcorder whether it’s to upload videos to youtube or to just create some personal family videos, the only draw back is to keep replacing with new batteries, ut make sure you use quality batteries like duracell as some cheaper batteries won’t last long. A great handheld and cool camcorder, about the size of a mobile phone. I use mine for creating videos for youtube and i find they are ideal for making tutorials and even just you talking on them, the flip has a built in microphone which is ok, but i would possibly buy a sound recorder and try and sync it with your video in some kind of video creation software.

Overall nice little camcorder. I’ve had this about two years now and i haven’t really got any complaints it’s a simple point, press and your recording perfect for those moments you need to capture quickly. The video quality is what you expect for a small hand held and the only time it struggles is in poor light which is expected but not a real problem. It comes well packaged and with all the cables you need to connect it to your computer or tv and also the first time you connect it to your computer it will install some free software called flipshare. Once install it will update itself and allow you to add music, edit your videos and more though a little basic compared to what’s out there it gets the job done. Overall i would recommend this as a gift for someone who’s interested in making videos or someone wanting quick easy use.

I use it to video sections of training to make it more hands on and interesting. It can show learners what they are doing ( and doing wrong) this allows them to correct their practice. Easy to use, easy to download, no problems.

No different than the video function on your digiatal camera. I read the reviews and decided to give it a go as i wanted to replace my bulky camcorder and have 3 young children. The great things about it is that it’s not much bigger than a mobile phone so can quite happily fit in your bag on any day trip without taking up much room and can be whipped out at a moments notice. It’s discreet so the self concious amoungst us neednt feel embarrassed. There’s only a a few buttons, play, stop, zoom in/out, delete. I didnt even need to read the manual that it came with. It’s plugs directly into the pc and away you go. These may or maynot bother you depending on what you are looking for in a image recorder.

I have to say i was very happy with the purchase of the flip, its small and compact to fit in the pocket, easy to use with its point and shoot, instant playback, and whan transferrred to the computer, the video picture is excellent. I take mine on fishing trips and have been delighted with the results, it realy is so simple to use. Would recommend the flip to anyone.

I have a flip, i’ve given two as presents, i’ve persuaded 3 friends to buy one and i have now bought two on behalf of two workplaces. This is simply the best piece of kit – particularly good in poor light and excellent sound quality. Easy of use is a highlight and having just been on a 1,000 mile trip on the ancient silk road, the one hour recording time was more than sufficient. I had 15 mins spare on return and felt i was flipping all the time.

Easy peasy bright and breezy. If you’re looking for a simple, easy to use video camera that just gets on and does the biz, this is it. No fuss, no long-winded instructions, no training course required, just point & shoot. Worked straight out of the box on xp pro and comes with a nifty and simple to use editing programme built in. The flip-out usb is very 007 and most importantly the picture quality is pretty good too. If you’re like me and don’t go a bundle on the technicals but just want something that does its job well and is soooooo easy to use then buy it – you won’t be disappointed.

Well, having read all the reports on the flip camcorder, and considering all the points made, i decided to buy the thing anyway and can only say that it has proved to be one of the best buys ever. Ok it’s not going to allow me to create a cinematic masterpiece but it is so simple to use and the clarity of playback, even on a big screen, is excellent. Absolutely delighted with the product so, go for it.

This camera was just what i needed for shooting videos quickly and easily of my infant to send across the ocean to my family. The quality of the videos aren’t first class, but they capture the moment very nicely. The downsides to consider are: it isn’t good for taking shots of things very far away so i’d recommend using it for filming people only, it doesn’t seem to be able to take rechargable batteries (mine doesn’t, don’t understand why), and the arm for plugging it into the computer seems like it could come off easliy since the weight of the camera is suspended while uploading (you can solve this by buying an extender cable). It’s just what i wanted and would recommend it to anyone else looking to capture family moments conveniently. Also, the software is very good and easy to use.

Great for use in schools to video role plays. It gives good quality video and its very easy to use. Other people in my school have bought cheaper makes and have been so suprised by how much better the flip is, they sent their video cam back.
