Flip MinoHD is the world’s smallest HD camcorder. But, in this case, small in size translates to high in quality. Flip MinoHD produces vibrant HD 720p (1280 x 720, 16:9 widescreen) video that can be enjoyed on any HDTV. Flip camcorders have earned a reputation for high-quality video, and MinoHD combines that signature Flip quality with the latest in HD technology. Its 4 GB of built-in memory lets you capture an hour of brilliant HD video, even in low-light situations. Plus, premier AAC audio means your videos will sound clearer than ever.
Flip MinoHD offers the same features that have made Flip Mino a huge hit. Weighing only 93.5 grammes, Flip MinoHD features a super-sleek, super-portable design that truly puts the power of HD video in your pocket. This portability allows you to capture HD video almost anywhere you go: a morning hike, a lazy afternoon at the park, a late-night party, and everything in between. Like other Flip Video camcorders, MinoHD offers a simple user interface with one-touch recording, making it easier and more fun than ever to take HD-quality video. Simply power on and press record, and you’ll be capturing HD video in seconds. When it’s time to edit or share your videos, flip out the USB arm and connect to any Mac or PC to launch the built-in FlipShare software. Built-in FlipShare Software

In use it is incredibly simple to operate - my technophobe wife loves it and can use it very easily. In fact, because it's so simple I could happily let my small nieces hold it without worrying that they might press the wrong button or damage it somehow. Although the picture quality isn't perfect it is very good for a small lens unit such as this one, and it adapts quickly to low light levels - in some situations it gave more detail in low light than I could make out by sight. The sound quality is very good too and it picks out conversations quite well even in noisier surroundings. It can be hand held, stood up on it's flat bottom or used on a tripod.
There aren't any software discs to worry about as everything is stored in the camcorder for you to use if you want, or you can just copy and paste the files to play another way on your computer. However, I did have some problems playing the HD videos on my computer - using Quicktime Player it couldn't handle the HD clips without some jerkiness, and the best results were obtained by simply connecting it up to my television. One very important thing to note is that the Mino Flip is TOUGH - it was accidentally dropped about four feet onto concrete slabs and the only damage is a small scratch on the corner - and it still works perfectly!
There is only one real drawback for me - like any other small recording device this unit suffers from camera shake and would benefit from some stability software being installed.
In summary, I would avoid this product and go for the Flip Ultra every time. I hope this helps somebody!
You plug the camera straight into your computer via a flip out USB jack and you can then work with your vids while the camera is charging.
There are two tiny niggles with the camera. As is often the case, in the paper instructions one of the procedures does not give the right button to press to do something(see later for correct order). Once you have cracked this everything is very easy. Secondly when using the camera's own software rather than another upload programme to transfer videos to youtube, an irritating message is embedded on your youtube video saying 'recorded on (date) on a flip mino camcorder'(or words to that effect)which stays there even if you delete it on the youtube upload set up. I have managed to get rid of this once or twice and will eventually suss out how to avoid this or use another upload programme for transfer.
Now that youtube is doing HD vids the quality of the HD recording is not diminished by uploading to a lower format.
Unlike it's Kodak counterpart, this camera can be stood on a flat surface because the designers were smart enough not to put the attachment for the handcord on the bottom surface. There is also a standard tripod thread and the small Gorillapod tripod works well.
Switch on, frame the shot, press the red button to start and finish recording. Press bottom right then top left to view. Press the trashcan, bottom left and top left to erase ( these buttons move the cursor to yes).Read more ›
1. Tiny and light weight
2. Video quality is excellent at 720p HD
3. Sound quality is good, though not perfect
4. Software is built into the device (it installs when you first connect via USB) and easy to use.
5. Simple upload to sites such as Youtube
6. Basic video editing software provided for either making a movie or creating a DVD
1. Only charges via a USB port (giving around 2 hours use)
2. The 4GB memory is not expandable so you are limited to around an hour recording before you need to dock at a computer to clear it down
3. Because of its size and shape the video can tend to be a little shaky, so using something like the Gorillapod tripod gives a great improvement.
4. The zoom facility isn't really worth using as it does very little.
It has the feel of a camera design for taking snapshots rather than high quality film - think of it in terms of a compact camera versus a DSLR.
It is great fun to use though and being so small you can carry it around in your pocket to capture moments that would be too much bother with a full sized camcorder.
