Flip has brought out a range of tiny hand held video camera’s no bigger than a large mobile phone and if you ask me I think they are brilliant. The flip Mino HD, Flip Mino, Flip Ultra and the Flip Ultra HD are all products that you can take anywhere and film anything and I mean anywhere. There are accessories for just about any sport; mountain biking, skiing and even an underwater casing. You never have to miss filming your favorite event or sport ever again.
The Flip is so easy to use it really is fool proof; there are simple touch buttons on the front for record and then zoom. In playback mode you can skip through your video, delete unwanted items and watch what you have just recorded. Any of the flip cameras’ can do these simple tasks and there is not much between the models only that the HD are obviously in higher definition.
The camera comes with software that you load onto your PC or Laptop which makes it possible for the PC to read your camera, simply hit the switch on your camera and a USB stick pops up, that’s right no need for cables or tangled up wires. Once your software is installed you can plug in your camera and download all the movies onto your computer for editing, from there you can produce movies make DVDS and generally have a lot of fun with it.
You can also play back your movies instantly from your Flip Mino HD straight to your TV, simply plug in the cable and operate your video from the flip itself. It is a brilliant way to entertain at the end of a party letting people watch straight away what you have recorded at the end of a night. The only problem is everyone asking you for a copy on disc. The only problem one might come across with the flip cameras’ is they seem to have problems focusing in bad lighting and video comes out fuzzy on the playback on a bigger screen.
This really is an action camera and you can do unimaginable activities such as; clip it into a mountain bike holder and film the adrenaline rushing downhill that you tell your wife about but she never sees. Or take it on holidays and film some under water scenes to show folks back home the beautiful fish you saw. Whatever you use the Flip Mino HD for it will give you unbelievable quality every time and great memories you can keep forever.
