    Flip UltraHD and UltraSD officially announced

    It’s a little late to be announcing anything, since the things are already at Best Buy, but I guess Flip had better at least acknowledge that the Flip UltraHD and SD exist. We guessed that it was 720p and had 8GB of built-in storage when we saw the leaked pictures, and that’s pretty much what the news is. The price is lower than we expected, though, so that’s good news for… Read More

    Flip Ultra HD unboxed and toyed with

    Flip, makers of the Mino line of portable digital camcorders, have released the slightly less portable, but more capable Ultra HD. It’s chunkier than the Mino and has enough built-in storage that it can record a total of 2 hours of footage — the MinoHD records an hour of 720p to 4GB, so it’s a fair bet that the Ultra HD has 8GB inside. There aren’t any real specs… Read More

    Earlier this month we reported that Cisco Systems had acquired Pure Digital Technologies, the makers of the popular Flip Video cameras.

    CrunchDeals: Flip Video F230W for $59

    Wanna jump into the world of pocket video cams? This Flip F230W is a great, entry level model but don’t expect stellar recording results.

    CrunchDeals: Second generation Flip camcorder for $80

    With Valentine’s Day approaching and the economy being the way it is, it doesn’t hurt to save where and when you can. Today’s Woot is far from stellar, but the Flip is a popular camcorder despite its shortcomings. Those shortcomings only apply to us nerds it seems and the general consumer – think soccer mom – aren’t worried about the things we bitch about. Read More

    Flip intros $229 high definition ‘MinoHD’ camcorder

    The tiny-and-popular line of Flip Mino camcorders has a new addition with the MinoHD. It’s basically a Flip Mino that – you guessed it – records at 1280 x 720 resolution onto four gigabytes of onboard memory. The camera appears to be about the same as the regular Mino except for some updated software, the higher resolution, the 4GB of storage, and the $229.99 price tag versus… Read More

    Flip video recorder #1 according to NPD


    According to NPD research, the Flip is the #1 selling camcorder in the US, beating out such stalwarts as Sony and JVC. The Flip is the YouTube compatible video camera that is so simple even a retarded monkey could use it. The Flip—so popular because of the cam’s ease-of-use, low cost and instant publication capabilities—leapfrogged into the digital marketplace, creating a… Read More

    DXG's 567V HD camcorder could give the Flip a run for its money

    DXG, “the digital camera company,” has thrown its Cowboy hat into the increasingly crowded direct-to-YouTube video cameras space. Its 567V shoots video at 30 frames per second with a 1280×720 resolution. Pretty sure that’s above and beyond (n. the trance DJs) YouTube’s requirements, but here we are. All CMOS-captured, H.264-compressed video is recorded onto… Read More

    Arrington reviews the Flip Mino

    Seeing as how our review unit of the Mino is ‘lost in the mail’, I thought I’d share with you what our boss thinks of the Mino. Michael doesn’t actually have one himself, but I trust his judgment and he’s done some perusing of the Web to see what everyone else is saying. I’m sorry we couldn’t share our thoughts on the Mino with you, but Flip only seems… Read More

    The Flip Mino is officially available today. It’s the smaller, more pocketable successor to the popular and easy-to-use Flip series of digital camcorders.

    Creative goes official with Flip clone, Vado


    Here’s the Vado from Creative. It’s basically a clone of the Flip but it looks less chintzy. Creative even goes as far as saying that the Vado is “dramatically thinner and lighter than competing video cameras.” I actually wouldn’t mind trying one of these. It records up to two hours of video and has 2GB of built-in memory. It’s only $99 so I wouldn’t… Read More

  • Creative clones the Flip?

    Creative clones the Flip?


    Gadget Lab seems to think so based on the product page of the Vado listed on JR.com. The specs and description do reveal striking similarities to the popular Flip. A 2-inch screen is an improvement over the Flip’s 1.5-inch screen, but VGA quality, one-touch recording and up to 2-hours of recording per charge are carbon copies of what the Flip can do. Is there really a need for two… Read More
