There is a HD version from Flip, better hold out for that till the price reduces

First saw these in the States earlier on in the year - can`t recommend them enough for convenience and ease of downloading to my laptop - the low light capaibility of these it far better than my HD Canon SD9 - thats the problem with HD versions of anything though is low light I guess .
Cost me £95 so this price is HOT...

Flip have an excellent UK website full of info on these as well...

This was given 'gadget of the year' award on 'the gadget show' for their christmas special. Very tempted

Hot.

Ordered.

Sorry but bought this from Toys R us for only £69.99 !!!

They have had it at £69.99 for about 3 months !

Sold out online but available in most stores

Voted cold.

and I bought one for my son as a Christmas present - it's ok for £69 but not much more

got it for £79.99 before the VAT reduction from Amazon. Great little gadget - decent quality picture and sound. Holds about 1 hr of video. Only downside is that it can't take still pics.

Cold? Cant understand that. Have you got one of these? I have and they are brilliant, Portable, handy and much better than a fiddly camcorder. Can upload straight to My Space or You Tube and work straight out of the box

Brilliant find voted hot!!

Of course they are "less fiddly than a camcorder" but the picture quality and frame rate are no-where NEAR as good!.Good price and a decent machine for using for some fun videos BUT DONT use this if you want to record something important

How can anyone justify getting this, when you can get a Hd quality one, with a bigger screen, acting as a mp3 player, voice recorder, 5mp still camera as well as a camcorder, with 3 yrs warranty for £58 odd quid? It comes with lots of accessories (Tripod, AV out cable, HDMI cable, USB cable, software driver CD, Pouch, Lithium-ion battery, 1GB SD card, Earphone, Power Adaptor and Strap) and can record for 64 mins on its provided 1gb memory card, with the option to increase up to 8gb (and yes ive tested it)

This may not still be available, at this merchant at this price, but online you could probably find this, or its equivalent for around the same price as this gadget.

For this reason, i vote COLD!!!

Sorry to all that think this is good, no offence but i just dont agree.

Why would anyone use this as an mp3 player or a voice recorder!, most people have that capability on their phone, which is much smaller than this thing. So I think bad comparison, can't imagine jogging down the road listening to music on this!, most people have at least a 2mp cameraphone as well.

The flip is designed for a sole purpose, not for duplciating things you already have

Sorry, I should have made myself clearer. This is not an alternative to a Camcorder. ( I have one of those and dust it off now and again) The brilliance of the flip is that it is fast, its fun, its accessible and its quick. It is no way is as good a quality picture as a HD camera/camcorder but as a fun gadget for catching those instantaneous happenings, I think it is brilliant. Beleive me, our house is full of 'bargain' finds including PSP's, DS, PS3, Wii,XBox 360 etc etc ,many of which are never used, but this little guy has been well utilised so, in my view, worth the money for what it is...

LOL. You sir are a moron.

Given a choice between having something (that you deem unecessary and not worth having)and not having it, im sure most would agree, that having extra features is better. By your ignorance, no one would bother buying ipods, cos we all have mp3 players on our phones. Some other people in this thread have already commented to the effect 'shame it doesnt have a still camera'. I mean by ur attitude, im suprised you're not telling people to use the video feature of their mobile phones.

Now, lets say for a second that the voice recorder, the still camera AND by your reckoning the Mp3 feature on there are useless and not worth having, then the only feature worth having or comparing is the camcorder feature. Now the one ive mentioned has a bigger screen (perhaps you think that is useless too) and records in HD quality (im sure you will find a problem with that too), and has expandable memory, which means you can record way more then an hour, if need be.

But the funny thing is, that you didnt comment on its camcorder features, just on those that you thought were not worth having on a camcorder. For this reason, the ignorant and moron award of the day goes to you, sir!!

What a peculiar and bizarre post to what was a reasonable response to your voting cold ...

The Flip is easy to use - requires no software to download to your computer( not even a lead) -has great low light capability and costs about the same as a expensive computer game - also it happens to have about 20% of the market in the USA selling to consumers who really know their gadgets ...

You basically haven`t got the foggiest clue what your talking about or any knowledge of the product.

Mate, perhaps you should look at what i was responding to. It wasnt a response to why i voted cold, but a response to the individual criticising the additional features without mentioning the superior qualities of the actual camcorder. And read my comment. You will see they are proportional.

The product im talking about has all that you have mentioned in the flip, is superior and costs less. So why would i pay more for something whose picture quality is less then HD, screen is smaller and costs more? The one i mentioned has fast acess, just open the flip etc etc, so will i pay more for the 'flip' name. I dont think so. Im not the one that doesnt know the foggiest. And why would you buy something, just because it has a 20% market in the US?

Hi. Thank you for your clarification. What i posted isnt exactly a top knotch camcorder either, but for under £100 (and cheaper then the flip) a very good substitute. It also is quick and accessible and isnt so big either. About the size of a N95 nokia phone. It also has a led flash and all the other fuctions ive mentioned, which also make it a fun gadget to have.

Im sure the flip is good and worth its money, but im not convinced that If you had one of these and compared it with the flip, that you would still think that the flip is good value for money, when the traveller is cheaper and the quality is superior. The only edge the flip must have is the 20 odd % in size, but then again the traveler makes up for this with a 2.4inch screen and hdmi output.

For those that insist on getting the flip, you can get one from Toys R'us instore for £68.50 (which alone is a good enough reason for voting cold)

For those that want something better for cheaper-go for the product ive mentioned.

A video example of the quality to be expected from the cammie ive mentioned: vimeo.com/124…808

Video example of the flip: vimeo.com/117…174

may i also suggest looking at the hd footage of the kodak zi6 on vimeo
i have just purchased one and the hd 720 60 frames per second
quality is amazing vimeo.com/159…227
or link to all zi6 vids vimeo.com/vid…ail
£89.99 from amazon in black or 85 in pink deals on here somewhere

It's funny that this has came up when I put a Deal Request in for it... unfortunately I'm in Ireland and can't buy electronics from Amazon. I did however got a Flip for £56 on Ebay yesterday.

Regarding the Flip, this is a hot deal. There is an excellent article by Gizmodo comparing 6 cheap camcorders and this came out the best (even better than the new Flip Mino model).

Read that article here: gizmodo.com/501…odo

No, it's not HD but you'll be set back at least £120 - £130 for a decent HD camcorder (and wait for the new version of the Creative Vado HD (which according to big tech guru, Chris Pirillo outshines the other HD camcorders). Kodak Zi6 is meant to perform horridly indoors (shakes and shudders intensely when moves). Read that article here: chris.pirillo.com/bes…i6/

So, there's plenty of reading for you and the Gizmodo has a comparison chart that summarises why the Flip Ultra is still the leader for pocket camcorders. You could buy one of the cheap ones in Aldi for £50 or whatever, but the Flip is still the best of the budget pocket camcorders.
