|Introducing the Flip Video Mino
From the makers of the popular Flip Video Ultra comes the Mino, which puts the power of video in your pocket. The super-portable, super-simple Mino makes it easy to capture and share high-quality video anywhere and everywhere. And thanks to its flip-out USB arm and intuitive, built-in software, Mino lets you view, edit and upload your videos to popular video-sharing sites instantly. In addition to its sleek compact design--complete with touch-sensitive, backlit buttons--Mino boasts a rechargeable battery that powers up automatically while plugged into your computer or electrical outlet.|
All That Flip Video Goodness, Only Smaller At 40% smaller than its already pocket-sized brother the Flip Ultra, the Flip Mino barely makes a dent in even the tightest of jeans. But small in size doesn't mean short on function;
Mino’s got all the Flip features--simple user-interface, one touch-recording, built-in USB, intuitive editing software, easy sharing functionality--that folks have come to know and love.
Sleek, Portable Design The Flip Mino is the perfect combination of form and function. Its minimalist, retro front is the perfect complement to its high-tech modern back, with a large no-glare screen, touch-sensitive panel, and glowing backlit control buttons. All focused around Flip’s signature red record button that lets you go from pocket to recording in seconds.
With a camcorder this small and sleek, there’s no limit to where you can take it and what you'll end up shooting. From a short film to enter in your favorite festival to footage of a hot new band, the Mino makes it easy because it's always with you and always ready to go.
Mind-Boggling Quality Despite its diminutive size, the Flip Mino produces video that rivals that of camcorders costing much, much more. With 2 GB of flash memory, the Mino can record up to 60 minutes of VGA (Video Graphics Array)-quality video that looks sharp when played back on your laptop or television (TV cable included). The high-quality microphone captures crisp, detailed audio, whether you're paddling down the Amazon, or rockin' out at your favorite club. Revolutionary Built-in Software Flip Video’s revolutionary software is built into the camcorder, so there's no need for clunky 3rd party software or cables. Just plug the Mino into any PC or Mac via the flip-out USB arm and you'll be viewing, organizing, editing and sharing your videos effortlessly.
looking good so far3/31/2009
This is a great product for capture moments you might otherwise miss with a larger camcorder. The only knock I have against this device is the less than sturdy USB connection that flips out. It comes with a USB cable and I would always suggest using it. Great product that I am using daily!
I like it a lot but still think the usb is a little chintzy but no problems yet. I would also like to be able to expand the memory but this is a great product for the price,
Great little camcorder11/26/2008
I have had this device for about 2 months now and I love it! It is very easy to use, If you can navigate a cellphone, you can use this camera with ease. The video quality is great; except when you zoom all the way in; audio is great, battery life is longer than I expected....I was able to fill up and empty the camera twice in a day on a single charge. Compact, smaller than my Pocket PC....very handy. The device starts very quickly (ready to record within 3 seconds). The software that comes with the device has a great little feature of being able to take a screenshot out of the videos, essentially making this device a still camera as well. Much easier than having to hit printscreen and opening up a paint program, then pasting your screen into the program and having to crop it. The only cons I have to report is the lack of an SD card slot for additional memory and the lack of video stabalazation. If the device had these 2 features, it would get a perfect rating from me. I recommend this camera to anyone.
Love my Mino!8/22/2008
I've had my flip video for about a month now. I really love it and find myself taking it everywhere. The video quality is very good, better than I expected. The battery life is excellent. Audio quality is also good. Transfering video to my PC is really simple too. The pop out usb plug is very cool and convenient. I'd recommend the Mino to most anyone who wants a very small, easy to carry video camera that takes good video that's ready to upload to the internet.
This is such a handy little thing! It produces great video, and is so easy to use. I am so glad I purchased it! =)
