Great value for the price
For the sale price, this was a tremendous value, and with the free shipping, it was a no-brainer. I already own a black Flip camera, and purchased these as gifts based upon my own positive personal experiences. I realize that the newer HD version may have a higher resolution, but for the price, I couldn't pass these up. The manufacturer must have realized that in order to make these useful, they had to be easy to use and had to boot/start up quickly. From the moment you power up the device, it takes maybe one second to be ready to start recording a video, so you don't have to worry about missing that perfect "snapshot" when it occurs. Whether it's a sporting event or trying to catch your child crawling for the first time - it's terrific! This version comes with 60 minutes of recording space, which has been plenty sufficient for my purposes (recording our children growing up), but just make sure to remove the files from the device over time, or you may max out the memory and miss an event. The size of the device is also streamlined, and is generally about the size of a cell phone (though skinnier) and is easily portable. It fits into your pocket, and you can easily take it anywhere. The zoom function is also easy to use, though it took a few test tries to get the hang of how quickly the function zooms in and out. It also plugs into the USB and you can quickly pull down videos, and even clip the video while it’s on the device. Overall, a great product that had some good thought go into it!
