I Want to Film....More!

This camera is something else.  It is no bigger than the average cell phone and is very light weight.  It comes with a sleek velvet material case to protect it when you transport it to film your movie.

The screen on the back is a little smaller than I expected but I manged to deal with it because the quality is unlike any other video camera i have used.  You are able to hit the power button and less than three seconds you are ready to film.

I have used it for about a week now and charged the battery once. That brings me to another point.  The mino and the hd flip are the only two that can recharge.  SPEND THE MONEY....get the mino.  You will be throwing your money away if you get the ultra.

Another sweet thing is that no matter where you are you can "flip" the usb arm out and edit on any computer, your one click away from youtube or email, and you can also charge you battery.  However, you cannot expand the memory on it.  It holds 60 min though!!

This is a must get camera.  The quality is great, portability, strength and look to it is also great.  For the money spent, 159.99 at b&hphoto.com it is a little beast.

For you photograpghers out there you can take stills from the videos you make as well.

This would be the perfect camera to capture my baby's first years. I have video capability on my Sony Cybershot, but you can imagine the quality of that - not the greatest. Thanks for the review!

Awesome! I've started posting more videos onto my blog, so this looks like a nice starter camcorder to teach myself a few things. I'm surprised that it's so cheap though. Question: Can you also use it to take pictures (not just film stills)?

Perfect! Sounds like something I've been looking for! I love the light weight stuff. And price seems right too! Thanks! The URL is not correct? It's a site in Korean!
