That pretty much sums this up, very small, smaller than most mobile phones and incredibly easy to use. One button to turn on and one button to start and stop recording. There are playback buttons too but i don’t bother using them as it’s a waste of battery. Video and sound quality are good, not amazing but easily as good (and in most cases much better) as any mobile phone i’ve used. You won’t get very good results in low light conditions but again that is a trade off from having such a small device. Once plugged into your pc it couldn’t be more simple to save your videos. Either use the built in software or if you’re like me you will prefer just navigating in windows explorer. Either way it is hassle free. For me it’s great becuase i can take it anywhere and never worry about those moments when you wish you had a video camera.

Wonderful little videocamera – probably the best device i’ve seen all year. This little videocamera is the perfect present for christmas. No instructions needed, no need to buy a memory card as it has a plentiful 4gb built in, and you don’t even need to charge it up when taking it out and using it for the first time. In fact it’s so portable and easy to use i now carry it around with me in case i ever need it, at work as well as home. Using the camera is as easy as pressing the power button, waiting three seconds for it to power up, and then pressing the big red button in the centre. The screen tells you how much recording time remains and there’s an optional red bar that comes on at the front of the camera to let others know you’re recording. If you don’t press record, the flip switches itself off again after a short while to conserve power. Playback is as easy as pressing the play button, and deleting is simply a matter of pressing the bin button. There’s an option to lock the videos so you can’t accidentally delete them. You can alter the volume during playback, but there’s no option of recording without soundanother great thing about the flip is the usb connector that flips (hence the name) out at the push of a button to allow you to connect the device straight to your computer – no need for separate leads that always end up getting lost.

I was quite suprised at how small the box was when it arrived. The box is very much the same dimensions as the camera unit itself but with more depth, very similar in size to an iphone box. Getting into the box is relatively simple by peeling the clear sticker and pulling back the flaps of card. The camera then comes in a seperate presentation box if you can call it that, in which you can lift the lid on a ‘hinge’ and be presented by the camera. When you lift the camera out, you can then lift the card structure holding the camera and be presented with a user guide, warranty leaflet, wrist lanyard and camera case. The front of the camera is glossy black whilst the side and back are brushed metal. The screen located at the top is roughly 5cm x 2. 5cm, which takes up roughly one third of the front to put it into perspective. There are 7 buttons on the front of the camera.

For something smaller than most mobile phones this is an amazingly good cam. It is simple to use, simple to download and takes impressive quality video. Ok, i wouldn’t take it on a safari say, due to it’s lack of a zoom focus, (hence the 4 stars) harsh i know. But as well as holidays, it is so easy to take with you everywhere that you will capture moments previously missed.

A handy pocket sized little camera, was really pleased with it, screen not very big, but when clips played back on tv quality is really quite good. I used to film my daughter riding her horse cross country, and although i could not zoom very far, the playback was quite good. Also used it inside and this seems much better. A good camera at relatively cheap price. Fits in pocket easily, battery time was quite good, and memory size adequate for my needs. Video clips are very easily uploaded to fb or youtube, i found this really good as am not the best at transfering files. Just plug it in to laptop and away it goes.

Flip Mino HD 3rd Generation 60 minutes recording, 4GB Memory & Image Stabilisation – Brushed Metal : Nice product nd easy to use. Problems with the length of filming time as cuts out so have had to refer to guarantee and sort out return.

Nice picture quality, good sound, easy to connect to a computer. However, 3 months after purchase i started to notice some problems with my flip mino. Even though it had full charge and i hadn’t recorded anything yet, it stopped recording. The screen went blank and would not turn on again or record anything. After a few days, it turned on again but i still haven’t figured out what had happened. Since then it has frozen a few more times for no reason and i simply cannot work out whyeven though i am more than happy with the quality of the camera, i wouldn’t recommend it purely because it is unreliable.

I was really pleased how easy this was to use – it worked straight away and has already been used to good effect on a number of family outings.

I really liked using it but now it just stopped working with no warning and for no reason – i have video on it that i would love to see – and i’m really upset about that. – and i don’t know who to send it to, to get fixed and it seems that it is no longer on the marketnot happy.

Flip delivers quality and fun. Having used video cameras since the late 1970’s as well as using some pro gear for many years i always found myself with a bag full of video camera with associated bits and pieces like spare batteries etc etc. It was because of this i decided to give the flip a try. To be honest i wasn’t expecting a lot really but to my amazement the footage from this incredible little machine astounded me. Ok you don’t get all the manual control of a more expensive unit or even an optical zoom lens but who cares. It produces quality pictures and sound and it’s a doddle to use and i can carry it in my pocket. It wipes the floor compared to the quality of a mobile phone camera but then i can’t make a call on my flip. It transfers the footage to a computer easily and even comes with a straight forward and simple editing package. It really is a great little camera and i wish there had been something around like this thirty years ago instead of the enormous gear i used to carry around with a ton of batteries.

This is an easy camcorder to use. The drawback is that when charging from the pc the screen is not visible – the usb should be the other way up. Finding a decent programme to convert videos to dvd was tricky, but it’s great for direct downloading onto social media sites.

Birthday gift from my family. The only disappointing thing about the flip is that it would not charge via laptop, had to buy plug in charger which worked a treat. Overall this is great to put in my pocket to catch special moments.

As a graphic designer with a sharp eye for quality, i can’t believe how good the videos are for such a small product. Forget the grainy jumpy images you get from your mobile, videos go full screen on my large imac with no distortion. Quick to turn on, easy to use, light, fits in your pocket.

I gather that these cameras are no longer in production. This is possibly because quite a number of them have battery problems. The one i bought was completely ‘dead’; would not turn on, could not be charged and when connected to a pc, was not recognised. A search on the internet revealed a lot of other people having exactly the same problem. Some were able to cure it by resetting the device but many others – like me – were not. (however when they work they seem very good).
