The Flip Video Camera Review

Unlike the 20th century during which camcorders use video tapes for the digital recording of video productions, the flip video camera is a tapeless camcorder which records video as digital computer files. It is created by Pure Digital Technologies which was later bought by Cisco Systems in March 2009. Those video recordings can be further loaded onto data storage devices such as optical discs, hard disk drives and solid-state flash memory cards. The Ultra HD, the Mino HD and the Slide HD are the three categories of the flip camera.

Actually, all the flip video cameras record video at High-definition of 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and use the MP4 file format, AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) audio compression and H.264 video compression technology. It has a single channel sound system i.e. monophonic sound reproduction which means either the headphone or the speaker can be run at once. The Flip Ultra HD Camcorders of 4GB (1 hour) and 8 GB (2 hours) consists of 2 AA batteries included or Flip Video AA battery pack which is sold separately and a lithium-ion battery pack included which can use 3 AAA batteries other than the Mino HD and the Slide HD which consists of only an internal Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery. One should prefer buying the Ultra HD 2hr. model because of its only exclusive feature of  backup power source, thanks to its 3 AAA batteries.

All the models including the mino HD and the Slide HD haven't any memory card extension slot except the Ultra HD 2 hr. model which consists of a FlipPort in which if required, external accessories can be plugged in. While, all the models can be connected to any computer by a wireless USB connector. This technique makes this flip video camcorder worthy because it reduces the blurring created by any type of movement of the camera during exposure. The 4 GB model is not only bigger in size than the 8 GB model but it is also heavier than the 8 GB model. The current model of 4 GB weighs around 5.7 oz (162 grams) while the 8 Gb model weighs around 4.5 oz (130 grams). The 4 GB model is available in white, blue, pink or a custom design while the 8 GB model is available in black, white or a custom design. the custom design lets you create any color for an instance. The current price is 79.99 $ and 99.99 $ of 4 GB and 8 GB models respectively.

All models of the Flip video camera have a LCD screen of resolution 320 x 240 pixels and a Transflective liquid crystal display which supports visibility even in bright daylight. The Ultra 8 GB model and every other model uses the image stabilization technique except the 4 GB model. All the models have 1.6 megapixel CMOS sensor and automatic low light detection light sensitivity. The type of lens used is fixed-focus lens having range of 1.5m to infinity. Life of battery of 8 GB model is up to 1.5 hours of use between charges while the 4 GB model has a life of 2 hours. All models of the flip hd camera have a Power-up time of less than 4 seconds and auto shut-down feature for power saving. Every model also have Built-in speakers and Built-in wide-range stereo microphone.

The software used by all the flip video cameras is called Flipshare. It has features like video editing, picture editing, taking still pictures from any video and direct sharing to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. 

The Flip Video Camera, rechargeable battery pack, wrist strap, soft protective case used underwater, and the user guide comes in with the box when purchased.
