That is completely true and I get that I am behind the times by still using this little gem.It’s also very convenient that it has the USB connector built in rather than having another cable to keep track of.It’s a great camera that has good video quality, sound, and best of all it’s easy to use! Turn it on, press the big red button and you are recording! A few things I don’t like about the camera are the lack of editing abilities with the software and not being able to fast forward while viewing a video on the camera.Just pull it out, press a button, and start taking great easy-to-edit video.It’s small and convenient for taking to special events like concerts.Never mind the fact that the people answering the phones are idiots.It lists at $149.Just don’t breathe too hard or you’ll hear it on playback.I have had many cameras and camcorders over the years to compare this to, and this one is good.The Kodak was not stocked anywhere so I bought this as a gift for my teenage daughter.I was wrong.The sound is also very limited and often couldnt hear the voice of the person speaking.It’s great for older kids who can take care of their electronics, and it’s a great choice for outdoor scenes which might otherwise damage more expensive video equipment.So, when I saw a special price on this before Christmas, I took the plunge.The definition is 4 times higher with progressive scan and 4:2:2 chroma sub sampling in H.The Flip Ultra 2nd Generation is that VIDEO camera.I also wanted to be able to share the videos on Facebook or YouTube.It’s small size and ease of operation are the reasons I purchased it and on those points it can not be beat.It is a pleasure to carry this compact video camera right in my purse.This is a great camcorder for the price.
The camera is completely user-friendly, anyone can use it, perhaps even without reading the manual.Prior to the Flip, I just used my digital camera’s video mode.Over the holidays we played around with it and made some videos, which, to my surprise, came out very sharp in picture and in sound.And the HD quality is actually very good! The only thing I don’t like is that it uses AA batteries, instead of a rechargeable Li-Ion battery, although i suspect that they do have those available, I just need to find them somewhere.I used the camera to film several dance showcases.From the moment I opened the package I could start shooting in about 5 minutes.One for my 11-yr-old niece & the other for my 21-yr old daughter in college.The quality of the picture was good.I use this wonderful device weekly to record drumming practices with my wonderful Salisbury Hand Drummers.I had the camcorder up and running within minutes of opening the box; the user guide it came with and the support on the Flip website are thorough and well done .We took it snorkeling on two seperate occasions once in the Carribean and once off the coast of Mexico and also to a waterpark using the underwater case that is available to purchase.Like the camera on the cellphone it can always be with you because it is so small.Both of them have been in great working condition, aside from minor scratches, it also have bring great joy to my friend who has severe autism.It is extremely easy to use – the software downloads itself! When you are ready to use it, it turns on in an instant and is ready to record.However.I generally record clips five minutes or less in length.It is easy to use, holds a good 2 hours of recordings, and is easy on battery life.This has fit the bill.-an upgrade from the video mode setting on our point-and-shoot digital camera -to stay within the budget of a gift certificate we had been giftedImpressed by:-the battery life – I put in the AAs that came with the camera and figured I’d only have 20 minutes before I had to switch them out, haven’t switched them yet.In general, flip video is terrific.
And the Flip is PERFECT for that and SO MUCH MORE!! I don’t think you could find anyone on the planet who couldn’t make good use of a digital camcorder.I had never returned a product I purchased at Amazon before, but this was so quick and easy.I am the kind of person who choses technology to satisfy a need that I have.But I was am still a little disconcerted about the reliability of the build of the camera…I think it is more sensitive to damage than originally thought… This is just ,y opinion as the original sent might have just been bad model but if not the only thing to mess it up would be it moving around in my shoulder bag.The video quality and sound are equal to the subsequent Go-Pro cameras for a fraction of the cost.As many have suggested, I also made a purchase of Eneloop rechargeable batteries and didn’t go with the rechargeable battery pack and so far, I have been able to capture a good amount of video.Until now she had relied on an old but still good VHS-C camera.Its so easy to use and the pictures are pretty darn clear.I don’t even need to take pics anymore!!! Seriously, love it.I have been making small video’s of my granddaughter to burn to disc so that she will have these when she becomes an adult.DO buy the Flip Ultra if you want to capture lifes wonderful moments with a click, post You Tube clips for family or friends, and want to play amature film maker with the awesome built in editing software.It takes two AA batteries and they last a long time .The camera is easy to use.Thank God I had another set of batteries with me, because it went dead about 2/3rds through the Seminar and I had to do a quick battery replacement .I own an older model, and have to say, this camera performs as good as my $380 Sony Camcorder .If I hit a note too hard on the guitar it seems to clip the audion signal and if I get the camera too far away I get a lot of room noise/hiss.In my opinion, this is an excellent camcorder for a novice, or someone who just wants an easy to use camcorder that is small and compact.I researched a lot of no name digital camcorders and the Kodak ones, but decided on the Flip because it had such good reviews.it’s really nice and only slightly grainy.Now, my daughter is eight, so take it with a grain of salt.
