Flip Video Mino HD

 

Pocketable camcorders continue to be all the rage, the Flip Mino HD being the latest instalment.

In fact, after initially setting time and date, there is almost nothing else to control on the Mino HD other than starting and stopping recording. There are plus and minus buttons to operate the 2x digital zoom, but annoyingly these only become active...

Flip Video MinoHD review

 

After much malarkey about when we were allowed to post our review of this product, it seems today is the day we can finally tell you our thoughts about the not-so-secret Flip MinoHD (it came out in the US months ago and has been available for preorder...

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...

The new Flip has added 720p video to its armoury. Can it gun down the Kodak Zi6 or Creative Vado HD?

You won’t be dazzled by its video or LCD, but this pocket camcorder is child's play to use and not bad in low light

Flip Mino HD

 

Weighing less than 100g, yet boasting high definition video recording, Flip's new Mino HD looks to challenge the assumption that portability compromises quality

The Mino HD is ideal for the YouTube generation. Its wonderful portability and excellent video quality more than compensate for lack of high-end controls

Flip Video - Flip Mino HD

 

Following in the footsteps of its predecessors - the successful and undeniably popular Flip Ultra and Flip Mino - it was only a matter of time before enthusiasts of these dinky, pocket-sized video cameras were given ...

A sleek and extremely portable video device that offers simple capture, playback and creative support. Videos are crisp with excellent sound and impressive HD quality for such a small device. However, colours are a little muted and it doesn't cope well...

Pure Flip Mino HD

 

The best Flip yet, but it's missing a few features that would help to justify the increased price.

We’ve always admired the simplicity of the Flip range, and the compact design and improved image quality of the Flip Mino HD do make it a very attractive option for anyone that wants a high-quality camcorder that they can just slip into their pocket...

A little pricey, but the best quality we've yet seen from an HD pocket video camera.

Flip MinoHD

 

Super portable and spontaneous HD video in your pocket

Needs stabilization and HDMI port

We’re big fans of Flip Video’s incredibly easy-to-use pocket-size video cameras, but it’s been difficult to wholeheartedly recommend them given the superior video capabilities of today’s point-and-shoot digicams.

Flip Video MinoHD second generation review:

 

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...

Solid 720p video, particularly for its size; slightly slicker ultraslim yet functional design; large 2-inch LCD; easy to use; integrated lithium ion rechargeable battery; HDMI output; FlipShare software compatible with both Macs and Windows machines.

Fairly pricey; no SD/MMC card expansion slot; no cable included for HD output to HDTVs.

Still one of the nicest models available, the second-generation Flip MinoHD offers a slightly improved design, double the memory, and an HDMI output for the same price that the original MinoHD used to cost.

Pure Digital Flip Mino HD

 

Very good video quality, Thin, sleek design, Responsive touch-sensitive controls, Intuitive, streamlined software

Still no memory card slot or digital still capability, Tiny LCD screen, Composite video output

Overall, we were impressed with the Mino HD's smooth 720p video. It performed well in a wide range of lighting conditions, always delivering pleasant, lifelike colors and loud-enough sound. Only in fast-paced action sequences-an ice-skating rink, for...
