Lots of Info & Tips Jan. 13 2011
By Joyce - Published on
Format: Paperback
I got my son a Flip minoHD & * I LOVE IT !* But I am far from a learn by just doing person like he is. I'm a visual learner, so when I saw this in the library's New book section I was a happy camper. Lots of great color pictures & info on working with the Flip program. I like it enough that I am now buying a copy here. Oh, & just a quick note on Flip's customer Service, some how I "lost" files on the flip, first I tried their online "Chat" didn't work for me. So I called got a LIVE person within 5 min. She spent 45 mins helping me, I use the flip on 2 machines, desktop running windows XP & my laptop running windows 7 (which I am still figuring out LOL) she was very patient and polite.

Useful help for beginners Feb. 13 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was purchased as a companion gift to a flip camera. My husband really liked both presents. The book makes it easy for a beginner to make good use of the camera.
Some Help June 26 2014
By James L. Nelson - Published on
Format: Paperback
Provided some clarity but, since this publication is not model specific, not the detail I was hoping for. Must admit I'm kind of hooked on books for Dummies as I always find something that helps me use the subject product.
Nothing new May 2 2014
By MG - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book summarizes the video capabilities, but I was hoping for more insight into other things the Flip video could do. Nothing new in the book. I guess I was hoping for more.
Pretty much useless Sept. 5 2014
By Tamara Whitman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Kind of useless, it seems to be geared towards the newest model of the Flip. I should have saved my money, I forgot about the numerous videos on YouTube showing how to work this.
