    Anyone here have a FlipUltraHD camcorder?

    Am thinking about purchasing one of the Flip camcorders. Anyone have one and if so what are your thoughts?

    We just got one on Thursday for work. I used it this weekend for basketball and Wrestling. It is amazing. These 3 videos all used the FlipUltraHD.

    Thanks for the input. Do they typically run around $175.00?

    Yes and I like it. The only thing that sucks on it is stabilization. There may be better options out there now but at the time (about 4 months ago) it seemed like the best choice.

    Here are some video's I took with it. The first one is with a mini tripod in the car.

    Re: Anyone here have a FlipUltraHD camcorder?

    I have had one since last May and love it. Very simple to use, very small, not even the size of a pack of cigs, and very user friendly.

    I bought one for my gf's sis and husband for Christmas and needless to say I am now the coolest guy ever.

    Anyone with children should have one, you will cherish being able to easily capture spontaneous moments.

    Bought mine from Amazon, and added some of the extras too.

    Re: Anyone here have a FlipUltraHD camcorder?

    I got FlipMino(I think that's what it's called) for Christmas. I took it to Tempe with me but forgot to take it to the game The only thing I have is some video at the places we golfed and the hookers in our room.





    Okay, might have made up that last part.

    Oh, forgot the point of this thread. It's pretty cool.

    This is what I want. I REALLY want to get it before I deploy. I could get some wicked videos.
