5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have June 30 2009
The Flip UltraHD Camcorder is an extraordinary product. Small and light (the size of a cell phone), easy to use (a 6-year old can handle it), uses 2 rechargeable AA batteries (included) or ordinary AAs (no more missed recording because of a low battery), enough memory for 120 minutes HD recording, produces good movies from which you can extract great pictures, excellent in low light, good sound, can be used with a tripod, easy to upload to your computer (PC and Mac) through its USB connection. And it is probably the least expensive HD camcorder on the market. Some reviews noted that its only negative point was the lack of a good stabilization software, but we were surprised at how well it did in a moving car over a bad road. We take it wherever we go!

3.0 out of 5 stars Device is simple to use, software is flaky Aug. 16 2009
A great holiday/vacation/travel/everyday companion, this HD camcorder (720p only) is easy enough for my nine-year old to use. However, the installed software (FlipShare) refuses to launch on my MacBook running OS X 10.5.8, and several weeks of emailing Flip tech support back and forth have yielded no real solution as yet. Thankfully, iMovie 09 can import the recorded videos, or I just copy the video files when the Flip is plugged in. Flip tech support asked me to erase the software on the camcorder and download a setup file from the web to reinstall, but the file was for a Windows PC, and it was infected with a Trojan! This is enough to discourage me from using the Flip with a Windows PC instead of a Mac, so I'd give the device itself five stars, but the bundled software gets one star, hence the averaged three-star rating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Barely used it and when I did it didn't work March 27 2014
Verified Purchase
Barely used it and when I did it didn't work. You have to be standing close to it because there is no external microphone plus the battery charge doesn't last long. I used it for maybe 10 hours than, frustrated by the poor battery power, I set it aside and bought a higher end videocamera. When I tried to use it again a year later, it wasn't working anymore. Didn't get my money's worth for sure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Sept. 1 2009
I purchased this product and the first time I went to charge it I got a Warning Hot Error on the screen charging paused. After trying to contact support they offered me a RMA but I needed to pay the shipping to send it back. I next looked online and I am seeing multiple people getting this error after from July to now so it appears there may be something wrong with the newest units so proceed with caution, I think Flip better get their act together and recall the product or pay to have the units replaced not make the customer send it to them.

I returned it instead to Amazon yesterday as I was in my 30 days so at least one company would get a great review from me, Amazon. As for FLIP buy a Sony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Camera, Great price...works well! May 18 2010
By Gordon
Verified Purchase
Well I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the video from this camera. But lets start at the beginning. (1)I read the reviews on Amazon before buying the camera. That was probably the main reason I bought it. (2) Camera arrived this morning and it came well packaged. (3) Setup the Camera and installed the FlipShare. Its okay software but a bit limiting...so I also installed Movie Maker from Microsoft (For windows 7, I needed to download and install).

After setting up the software, I ran out and created about 10 short 10-20 second clips at a clients store and showed off some merchandise. Camera was easy to use.
I returned home and assembled my first movie. Had it uploaded to YouTube (as a private movie). The quality was mediocre until I realized that it took You Tube a bit to process. Give it an hour and the quality looks good.

Overall I am very pleased. Excellent value and something ANYONE can run. And I saved 13% shopping at Amazon and got free SuperSaver shipping. Yes!!

Some extra advice...

1) Be sure and watch video's on using FlipShare on YouTube. They can save you lots of time.

2) Understand that you are not buying a $2000 camcorder. I hear some people complain about the zoom but for what it does, its awesome.

3) HD is definitely the way to go...a must.

4) Learn to export the movie and modify in an outside program.

I would highly recommend this product. WIthin 1 hr, I had my first movie that I sent to my client and we embedded on their webpage. Very nice. The clients were very pleased and the cool factor was there. And it didn't take days to edit and produce.

My main reason to buy this ( after reading the reviews ) was for Video Blogging. I also plan to offer friends downloadable movies on how to market their businesses online.

Talk soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic, convenient, and apparently cool June 28 2009
I didn't set out to get the Flip HD on it's Canadian release date. I'd had it recommended by others from out of the country and just happened into it. I'm very impressed with the tool for the price. It's easy to use, great video quality and surprisingly good audio. The included software is simple too. A couple small disappointments: would like an option for lower resolution to make uploading to youtube faster, also an external microphone jack would be nice for some settings.
Overall, I'm satisfied. And I think just having the Flip has made me 7% cooler
