My 11 year old daughter is thrilled with this christmas present. So easy to use and transer to the pc. The picture quality is very good.
An excellent idiot proof video/camera. This really is an excellent product. Simple to use and with excellent results,i bought this for my wife at xmas,and she could use it straight away with perfect results (it really is idiot proof),and good quaulity product. Would recommend this to anyone. (my wife incidently is aged 76) h gardner.
Excellent lightweight video camera. We purchased this camera as it really seemed to fit our requirements for a non hd camera, that would take aa batteries (when you are away from a laptop and usb this is really helpful). Video quality in all light conditions is excellent, and the sound (stereo) is super. Very clear and not at all splashy. The fact that it starts in 4 seconds and is ready to shoot 2 hours of content means that this is a must carry item when out and about. Uploading and managing files using flipshare is a cinch, and really makes this an easy way to share video content with friends, family and the world (via email, youtube or facebook et. Downsides are few, given the cheap cost and exceptional video quality. Maybe the zoom is only digital, and it can be a bit jiggly when moving, but these are small compromises for the simplicity and ease of use that this affords all users.
Great quality for an amazingly portable device. I bought this as a present for my mother, who is no pc expert – and as such, it had to be easy to use. Absolutely brilliant design, it’s really as simple as pressing a button to start and again to stop. And getting it onto the pc (and then onto youtube etc. ) is made completely easy too, with just about everything available as a one-(or two)-click function. We got to grips with it immediately, no fuss as all, and mum is now happily using it all the time on holidays, etc. – and it just slips into her handbag, it’s so small. I was worried that such a portable, ‘user-friendly’ device might have scrimped on video / audio quality, but i have to say that it’s really impressive on both fronts, given the size and price. The built in microphone pics up sound well in both small room and concert-type settings – we’re more than happy with the results we’ve got.
The flip video ultra is indeed a fine video recorder. Quality is very good and simple to download into my laptop. . Plenty memory(4gb which records up to 2 hours ). Yes a very worthwhile purchase .
Flip Video Ultra Camcorder 2nd Generation With 4GB Memory – Black (discontinued by manufacturer) : We bought this for our son for his 11th birthday and it has proved a brilliant buy. It is very simple to use, and uploading films is quick and easy. The ability to connect to your pc using the built-in usb means no fussing with (usually lost) cables and you can download the necessary software to edit your film clips and join them all together as well as connecting straight to the tv to watch. The only downside is that it runs on batteries and not a rechargeable pack. Small irritation for what is a great camera.
