Best portable video camera ever. I have wanted a portable video camera for ages, so when i finally decided to buy one, i spent hours (days, actually), researching the best one to buy. I can assure you, i looked at every review, every test i could find for every camera that fit the ‘portable’ heading. And i am over the moon happy. First of all, the size and ease of this camera have to be huge advantages. People use mine and go: ‘how does it work?’. ‘just press the big red button,’ i say. Lots of other cameras do offer different settings and menus, which started to lead me towards them, but in actuality, when i’m out and about and something interesting’s happening, i grab my flip and within three seconds i’m recording in the best setting it knows. If it offered different settings, i can’t say i’d change it, because the one it has is incredible. There was just one other factor that was preventing me from clicking the buy button on this. Most other cameras now have 1080p, which is a higher hd setting (more pixels and that), whereas the flip is only 720. But, i use but in the good sense here, 1080p actually makes videos a nuisance to upload or send anywhere, because it takes much longer. Plus, the flip 3rd gen is using 50fps (frames per second), which is actually where the better image is coming in.

The battery needs charging to begin with before it works and sometimes you have to take out and re-insert it to reset flip, as i have had 3 now. The sound and visual quality of their videos are just top class and i highly recommend them. Also a tip – charge flip initially directly using flips usb arm not a connecting lead as it will not charge battery enough for first time use. Then you’re good to go and can use a ‘compatible’ extension usb lead after. These tips are very useful believe me. I wish i had known beforehand.

This is a fun little camera and easy to use. However the company has stopped making it, so buyers should be aware that it is an already obsolete product.

I decided to give myself some time to play around with this camera, thinking that i could give a fair and honest review rather than just jumping on my initial thoughts about it. Initially, i really wanted a hd camcorder in order to record short videos to post on you tube. After browsing about on the internet i found that this one was pretty popular in the you tube world, and found that quality test videos and reviews on you tube were pretty positive. However, upon using it for the first time i was quite disappointed. It seems that you only get good quality video when you film in a well lit environment. This may sound like an obvious assumption from the start, but to be honest, with the technology people are able to develop today, you’d think that we may be able to get our hands on something that will do a decent job in an environment that isn’t as clear as daylight. I filmed a video indoors, in a room with windows and daylight peering through, but yet the video quality once it had been transferred to my computer was pretty horrendous. There appeared to be no texture or detail in the face of the person on camera, and the colours didn’t even blend well at all. But before i decided to give a final opinion i thought i would at least try it outside – the results were very different.

Flip Ultra HD 3rd Generation 120 minutes recording, 8GB Memory & Image Stabilisation – White : Good picture quality (drops off a bit in lower light levels). Bought it to record product assembly processes for our business, for later use as a training aid for new staff. Sadly the editing software is “very basic” making production of useful video impractical – if you just want to shoot a short fun clip for youtube with little or no editing, it would probably suit you well. One niggle with the design is the location of the on/off switch which is on the side of the unit. We found this very easy to hit accidentally when you pick the unit up (even when it’s in a soft case), so we have quite a bit of unexpected recording. Its easy to delete the recording, but it also drains the battery.

Video camcorder used on nearly all the video collaborations. Very good but lacking in zoom.

Idiot proof – shame there’s no real zoom on it or the ability to plug a microphone into it, though.
