Simple to use, quality of the image is good enough for me, fantastic value for money, easy to upload, same size as a mobile phone.
I use this with my apple mac & imovie 09. I wanted it so i could put movies on facebook. Imovie recognises the mino and you can easily import your movies into imovie to preview them. The quality is really good; better than i though it would be. I mean, its better than the mobile phone movies i’ve seen in the past. This is a great, fun, easy to use pocket camcorder for capturing fun moments, taking to gigs etc.
Excellent – does what it says. Bought this for my 9 year old daughter and its great. Exactly as the blurb says it is very simple to use – point and press to shoot; press again and it stops. Took us all of about 1 minute to get going with it and she has had a fab time using it with her friends. Haven’t used the editing software much – just storing the videos but it has all been very straightforward so far, and it charges up at the same time. We all want to borrow it now.
I am not a photographer, i take snaps. This camera is absolutely ideal for my use. The microphone in it has an amazing range and the video quality is perfectly good for my use. Obviously it would not be sufficient for a ‘real’ photographer. Very easy to use, very few controls so even my wife has no problem – and she still can’t programme a vhs recorderthe only thing that is missing is a separate viewfinder as it is not easy to see the lcd screen in bright sunlight when recording. flip video mino digital camcorder – black (2gb).
Bought one of these for my 10 year old daughter this christmas. The simplicity of the unit appealed, i thought it would be used, and it has. It has proved to be an excellent device, the quality of the picture and the sound is way beyond initial expectations. Works well both indoors and outside. The software is easy to use. All in all an excellent little camcorder well worth the money. Updatejust under a year old and bettery refueses to hold charge, mino switches off with low battery warning. Contacted the manufacturer to organise a replacment, a truly painful process, too many e mails/ calls and still no action. Fortunately amazon have a more customer orientated support team and a replacement is now on its way.
Flip Video Mino Digital Camcorder – Black (2GB) : I have a mino hd, which i’ve already reviewed, and i had the opportunity to compare it to the standard mino. Unfortunately i’ve had to compress the video to upload to amazon so the quality has suffered a little but it does show some of the differences. Both have excellent low light performance, so ideal for parties etc. The mino and mino hd look virtually identical, just a discreet “hd” on the mino hd. Operation is identical although you can zoom the mino before pressing the record button, the mino hd only zooms during recording. The tv out on the mino also works well, it’s poor on the mino hd. As you can see the mino picture format is 4:3, 640 x 480 pixels (vga) and the raw camcorder output is a. 15 seconds of video from the mino is approx.
