Flip SlideHD review

 

For years, Pure Digital Technologies, which was acquired by Cisco in 2009, has continuously shrunk Flip video cameras while increasing the screen size and storage. But with the Flip SlideHD, Cisco and Pure Digital is taking a step back, increasing the...

The Flip SlideHD brings new video-watching and recording features that are a step above other handheld video cameras such as Creative Technology's Vado and Kodak's Zi line. Hopefully, like other Flips, this device will shrink over time to fit into the...

Cisco Flip SlideHD Review

 

Flip's SlideHD reminds us of Rocky Balboa. Unfortunately, not the Rocky Balboa of the original Rocky or even Rocky II. Instead, we're thinking of Rocky III, where The Champ comes in out of shape and loses to, of all people, Mr. T.

Thick around the waist; expensive; no charger or HDMI cable; clunky interface

The Flip SlideHD handheld video camera sacrifices its pocket-friendly size for features that include touchscreen navigation, increased storage and video-viewing capabilities

Touchscreen controls

Not as pocket-friendly as other Flips

Cisco Flip SlideHD

 

There's a reason Flip dominates the pocket camcorder market, and it's not just that it pioneered the category. Flip camcorders are designed to be inexpensive and usable right out of the box: the now-signature design is foolproof, and there's always...

Flip Video SlideHD

 

For better or worse, touchscreens are finding their way into nearly every type of electronic product: phones, netbooks, cameras, tablets...and now, pocket camcorders.

3-inch widescreen display is great for playback ; Very good video quality in most conditions ; 16GB of internal storage

Expensive for a pocket camcorder ; No still-photo mode ; Touchscreen and touch strip can be unresponsive

The Flip SlideHD is great for video playback, but its touchscreen is extremely frustrating to use when you're shooting video.

Flip SlideHD (4 hours review: Flip SlideHD (4 hours

 

Editors' note: You may have heard that Cisco will no longer be producing the Flip camcorder products. However, as long as they're still available on the market, you may want to consider buying one anyway. If so, here are some issues you should consider...

Simple recording controls; 3-inch LCD; 16GB of storage; integrated FlipShare software remains excellent.

No memory expansion; no HDMI cable included; finicky touch-screen controls; pricey.

The Flip Video SlideHD is a tough sell unless you really want a larger screen for viewing and sharing videos on the go.

Fetish: Flip SlideHD Packs Touchscreen, Awesome Moves

 

You want to share your clip of lil' Joey riding without training wheels now, not later. Well, Flip's SlideHD, with a beefed-up, 3-inch screen, a cool virtual instrument panel, and 16 gigs of memory, will have you showing off your offspring in no time.

Cisco Flip SlideHD

 

Until now, Flip and its pocket camcorder competitors have concentrated solely on easy video recording and sharing. With the Flip SlideHD ($279.99 list), the focus shifts to the video-viewing experience. With its tilting 3-inch LCD and loud, clear...

Sliding, tilting 3-inch LCD. Easy-to-use, touch-screen interface. 16GB of embedded storage. Loud speakers. HDMI out. Bundled FlipShare software simplifies video management and sharing

Expensive. No still-image capture. No 1080p recording. No microphone input. Only a portion of the LCD is usable while recording video

The Cisco Flip SlideHD features an easy-to-use, touch-screen interface and a nifty tilting display for video watching, but if you're looking for recording versatility, you won't find it in this pricey pocket camcorder.

Flip SlideHD

 

Flip has just unveiled a new top-of-the-range model with a slide-up 3-inch touchscreen capable of recording four hours of 1280x720 video. No word yet on when it will be available in Australia.

Flip SlideHD Review

 

The latest offering from Flip, the SlideHD, has all the curb appeal of a slick, portable media player.

Fun playback design ; Great FlipShare software ; Easy to operate

Limited features and extras ; Overpriced ; Lacks updated video quality

The SlideHD simply does not offer enough to recommend when compared to older and less expensive Flips, as well as competing pocket camcorders that shoot at higher resolutions, have more features, and come packaged with extra cables and goodies.
