One look at this flip video and you may think is would be a good present for your 5 year old cousin to mess around with. Yes, that would be the case, but it also will pump out some quality HD footage. This phone size video camera produces a resolution of 1280 x 720 while weighing less than 5oz.
As well as creating great footage in a small package, it is super easy to use. The back of the camera has good size view finder and very straight forward control pad allowing the operator to record, zoom, playback and delete the videos. There is also a built in USB arm allowing the camera to be connected to computers, making it quite simple to upload videos and charge the camera.
Overall, the Flip Video is a great product. It is super easy to use, super compact and takes quality HD footage. The camera may not have the best zoom or be the most steady, but if you are looking for perfection, I hope you are looking in a higher price bracket. The Flip Video is perfect to throw in your pocket before any activity. If anything cool happens, you are ready to capture it, and it will be much more enjoyable to watch than all the POV out there.
