3.0 out of 5 stars nice size shame about the vido quality, 28 Dec 2009
This review is from: Flip Mino HD Camcorder With 4GB Internal Memory And Widescreen - Chrome (Electronics)
I bought this because of the convenient size and because of the HD resolution (720p).

Pro's
. The camera turns on very quickly so is handy for those spure of the moment shots.

. It comes with a built in USB connector, and its software is on the device itself (so you can use it anywhere without having to worry about leads or CD's.

. It easily fits in your pocket, and comes with a thin fabric slip cover (the sort you get with sunglasses) so its something you could conceivably carry round.

Cons'
. The video quality is quite poor for a "HD" device. Yes you get the correct resolution, but you also get with it a fair amount of pixel noise. I bought Cyberlink PowerDirector 8 ultra, to try to fix some of the noise, but you can never really get rid of it.
. It doesn't cope particularly well in low light conditions, the noise gets noticeably worse.
. Memory isn't expandable and the battery isn't replaceable, neither of these were really issues for me, but it might put others off.
. Only digital zoom (so it might as well have no zoom)

In short if you have a mobile phone that records video, this gadget really isn't for you, as the quality really isn't much better. With its rather poor quality, it won't be long until devices like this disappear in favour of newer mobiles, I wish i'd stuck with my mobile, but the idea of playing something on my HD tv appealed to me.

The Amazon service was brilliant as usual.
