1. Wide angle lens - widest of all pocket HD cams
2. 8GB built in memory
3. Decent low-light performance
4. Removable battery
5. HDMI and RCA connections for direct output to TV
6. Smaller/Slimmer form factor than the Kodak Zi6 or Zi8
7. Integrated fold-away USB socket - no need to carry USB cables


1. No external mic jack - internal mics on pocket cams can be poor - especially in wind or where the subject is not close to the camera
2. 720p max resolution (the Flip HD and Kodak Zi8 do 1080i/p)
3. No removable memory slot - so if you think you'll need more than 8GB storage in one session then you're snookered...
