Worked great...for a while11/4/2010
I bought this to replace a very expensive and old camcorder to take on our upcoming Disney vacation. When I first got it, I was in love with the way it had zero learning curve. Even the kids were able to record and playback with ease. Two days after the warranty expired, it will no longer work. Will not come on, will not charge, will not do anything. Just wish it had died prior to the trip to the mountains. Nini
major design flaws; terrible customer service9/22/2010
there are major design flaws in this (and other Flip) products. Namely, many people report charging issues and many also report that the glass lens is VERY fragile I personally experienced the latter. After only a few weeks of ownership, I had my flip in my pocket and when I took it out the glass lens had cracked. Just like that, no dropping, no anything unusual. The lens is very fragile. If you Google you can literally find hundreds complaining of this. Flip's response was that there's nothing that can't be done. Nothing on this camera is repairable. Nothing on this camera is replaceable. They don't do any warranty replacement for these issues, either. So basically, if this happens you just bought a really expensive paper weight. Buyer beware.
Just what I wanted9/19/2010
I knew going in that the pixel density was relatively low. Since I use it to record individual athletic performance (I am a crew coach, golfer and tennis player) a little graininess at large screen size does not bother me.
very good indeed12/30/2009
This is a great tiny camera to have, with 1 hr run time and easy charging from PC. Quality is great for such a small camera. To make good videos, use very steady movements. I am going to use this for semiprecious.tv as video version of semiprecious.com At 129 its awesome. I have the previous version, it has 1 hr video time. Sound capture is clear and nice as well. Amazing indeed.
