Flip Video - MinoHD


Flip Video's range of portable, easy to use digital video recorders has proven popular since they first broke into the market two years ago, and this is in no small part down to an impressive combination ...

The Flip MinoHD is undoubtedly a healthy evolution of a popular product, but like its predecessors it can suffer from being a bit too simplistic and omitting some key features that may still be helpful for beginners. As pocket camcorders go though,...

The Mino Goes HD : Flip Video Mino HD


First it was the Ultra then the Mino came along. Now we have an enhanced version of the Mino that promises improved image quality.

Adding to its family of pocket sized camcorders, Flip Video has produced the latest version of its Flip Mino product. This is the Flip Mino HD. As its title implies, this product adds high definition capabilities to the video capture and display...

Flip Video MinoHD review


Flip Video has a new take-anywhere camcorder, now able to shoot in 720 HD video - the Flip Video MinoHD.

Ideal for slinging in a rucksack or jeans pocket for a day’s sightseeing or a trip to the beach, the Flip MinoHD is an affordably priced, amazingly straightforward piece of gadgetry that records good-looking footage you won't be ashamed to revisit a...

Flip Video MinoHd


Point and shoot digital cameras are everywhere but the image quality for video is often more than just lacking. Today we have the MinoHD by Flip Video. It's a point and shoot camcorder slim enough to carry around every day and the 720p recordings won't...

Excellent video quality ; Slim design ; Easy to use ; Holds 2 hrs of video

Easy to accidentally turn on or off ; No option to expand memory

Many people have defaulted to their digital point and shoot camera when they want to capture a short video. While this is certainly acceptable, you’re never going to get the same level of video quality if you don’t have a dedicated camcorder. While...

Flip Video MinoHD Review


Based on the highly popular and portable Mino pocket camcorder, Flip Video has upped the ante once more with the MinoHD. As the name implies, it shoots 1280 x 720 video, but does it really do the job in all conditions? We've put it through the test,...

Video quality was fairly good, but washed out ; Small, compact package ; Simple to use software

Small LCD screen ; No HD output

The MinoHD retails for $229, a hefty cost for such a simple device, but does it compare in quality to the Kodak Zi6 camcorder? We'll bring you that review next week.

Excellent, easy to use


My wife and I borrowed a friend's Flip over the weekend to record some music performances (with permission !). The ambient noise in the club was quite high and the sound set up was not brilliant but despite this the recorded sound was of good quality....

Better quality than I was expecting for such a small camcorder. Easy to plug and play. Very easy to use although you must hold the camera steady to get a decent picture. A lot of my friends now want one. Don't spill your coffee on it as I did - the...
