It’s the Camcorder, Uncomplicated
The Flip Ultra camcorder makes it easier than ever to shoot and share video. Ultra features Flip Video’s signature shoot-and-share simplicity: just power on and press record to start capturing high-quality video in seconds.
With 120 minutes of record time, you’ll never miss another minute again. And because it’s super-portable, Ultra lets you capture spontaneous video anytime, anywhere. Whether it’s a busy evening at your kids’ soccer match; a weekend camping trip; or simply an unplanned, everyday event, your Ultra will let you capture the moment. So you never have to say, "You should have been there."
While it may be small, Flip Ultra packs a big punch. Ultra produces video that rivals that of far more expensive camcorders. Its 4 GB of built-in memory lets you capture 120 minutes of crystal-clear video, even in low-light situations. Premier AAC audio compression means your videos will sound crisper than ever, too. The included connector cable makes it incredibly easy to watch your videos on your TV.
Pre-Installed FlipShare Software
Ultra comes equipped with FlipShare, Flip Video’s video-sharing solution. FlipShare launches instantly the first time you connect to your computer. Featuring an intuitive drag-and-drop interface that’s as easy to use as the camcorder itself, FlipShare gives you access to all of the following features:
Save and Organise: Watch your videos on your computer whenever you want, create your own folders to organize your videos, or easily tag and file them with the automatic date-stamp system.
Publish Online: Upload your videos instantly to YouTube, MySpace and many other websites, all with the click of a button. It’s never been this easy to share your videos online.
Email Videos: Send your videos privately, and select from a wide assortment of included greeting cards to personalise your message. In fact, Flip will let you email a link to your video (rather than a big file) to your family and friends, making it even easier to share your video.
Edit and Create Movies: Edit individual clips and create custom movies--complete with your favorite music. FlipShare even lets you capture snapshots (still images) from your videos.

it just slips in my pocket and i take it every where with me for that
unpredicted moment !!
then i just plug it in the computer and it instantly
produces the video , which i make into a movie and send to my daughter in australia !!
my only negative is that it hasnt got a battery meter on it so u never know when
its going to run out , but its not run out on me yet it gets more use than my camcorder ever did !! good product ###
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.
Brilliant piece of kit for beginners or enthusiasts who want quality and portability in one device.
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.al. integration).
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.
Kids, adults and technophobes can operate this with no fear at all.
Thoroughly recommended and would buy another without hesitation. Maybe a different colour though...
Three points to mention on the downside -
No pause button
No battery life indicator - it just goes, so keep a spare handy
When recieving a flip film by email there doesn't seem to be a way of saving them to computer - (or is there)?
Otherwise fabulous, I bought the Ultra instead of the high def as I was delighted with the picture quality and thought not worth paying the extra for HD.
The quality - for such a small device - is remarkable. Best of all, my seven-year-olds can use it which is great fun. I could probably have bought the cheaper 2GB model as I rarely take a lot of footage before downloading it. Downloading could not be easier.
Looking through the range of models on offer was confusing - too much choice! I chose this over the Mino because I read that picture quality was better on this slightly larger model. Of course it's never going to be as good as that of a 'proper' digital camera but then you can't carry a big camera around in your handbag ready for anything - which is what I love about the Flip.
I found that with a normal camcorder I put it away until the next holiday. but with a flip I carry it now constantly in my bag and can film anywhere. The editing programme whilst easy to use can be a bit limited after a while but considering the price it does a good job. The fact you can take snapshots from your filming is fantastic. Also it is extremely easy to just send a little video to your friends by e-mail. It is so easy to upload on a laptop, no need for leads. I used batteries when I was traveling but I have just invested in a battery pack.
ULTRA SIMPLY TO USE LOOKS LIKE A COOL CHUNKY MOBILE FONE AFTER A BIT STARTED TO THINK COULD HAVE FILMED THAT IF HAD CAM ON ME.REALIZED THEN I WAS HOOKED.
CANNOT PRAISE THIS MACHINE HIGHLY ENOUGH DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND TREAT YOURSELF TO ONE YOU WONT REGRET IT.HAPPY FLIPPING.15/10.
