    Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    The Flip Mino HD is a mobile phone sized camcorder which records in a high definition format. It doesn't need tapes, discs or batteries and is small enough to slip into your pocket. It does come very nicely packaged in a compact box which seems designed to remind you just how small this camcorder is.
    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.

    I already had the original Ultra Version of this product, which I was very pleased with, despite it being a little bit bulky. I bought the Mino because I wanted to assess the HD Quality. To be honest, the HD quality is pretty acceptable but I think there is a overall flaw in this product. The focal length of the lens appears to be far too narrow, and unlike with a wide angle lens, so get a group of people in the shot you have to move quite a way back. I have only used it a few times and maybe I will learn to live with this 'flaw'. I did not have the same problem with the Flip Ultra so I really wish I'd have bought one of those.
    In summary, I would avoid this product and go for the Flip Ultra every time. I hope this helps somebody!

    I have used this high definition camcorder of mobile phone dimensions for recording guitar pieces and people speaking. The video and the sound quality are excellent. Putting videos onto youtube with the camera's software is straightforward as is editing the videos.

    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).

    Within the design constraints that Flip have set for themselves, this is an excellent camcorder but it does have some limitations which you need to weigh up before deciding whether to purchase this or a more expensive full sized camcorder.

    Pros:
    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

    Cons:
    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.
