Cisco takes its UltraHD to the next level. Well, it has a few new features anyway.

Good low-light performance, 50 frames/sec shooting, Two hours of video storage

No 1080p recording, No analogue video output, No manual features

Flip UltraHD review

 

Flip was largely responsible for kick-starting the popularity of easy-to-use mini camcorders.

With great-looking video and an HDMI output, this is our new favourite mini camcorder.

Flip UltraHD review:

 

You may have heard that Cisco will no longer be producing the Flip camcorder products. However, as long as they're still available on the market, you may want to consider buying one anyway. If so, here are some issues you should consider , and if not,...

Shoots 720p HD video; high-quality video for its class; easy to use; uses rechargeable AA batteries; FlipShare software compatible with both Mac and Windows machines.

Somewhat pricey; no memory card slot; no cable included for HD output to HDTVs.

The Flip Video UltraHD may not be the sexiest mini camcorder out there, but it offers a respectable feature set and some of the best video we've seen from this type of cheap, YouTube-friendly camcorder.

Flip UltraHD – no still capture mode

 

The Pure Digital has launched two mini-camcorders – (1) Flip Video UltraHD that shoots 1280×720 (720p) high-definition video, and (2) the Ultra that records VGA (640×480) video. $174 priced the UltraHD has HDMI port and 2 inches anti-glare...

FlipShare software for both Windows and Mac, high-quality video in its class, and shoots 720p HD video

No memory card slot for external storage; does not ship with HDMI cable; a bit more expensive

If you need one of the best high-definition and easy camcorder, then go for – Flip Video Ultra HD. However, it is much heavier than the MinoHD due to AA batteries and lacks still capture mode. You can also check the other better choices – Creative Vado...

Flip UltraHD

 

A little over a year ago, I reviewed the Flip MinoHD camcorder and gave it a glowing recommendation. Since then, the MinoHD has been by my side for a ton of daily video clips. I've recorded more video in the past year than I've recorded in the previous...

The Flip UltraHD is a solid handheld video camera. It’s a stellar performer that is simple and quick to use. The inclusion of the FlipShare software makes it a step above the many of the other handheld options out there.

Flip Ultra HD

 

The Flip Ultra HD is an easy to hold, easy to use camcorder that shoots 720p video onto the onboard flash memory at a smooth 30 frames per second. You can copy it quickly across to any computer, but there's also the option to cut out the middleman and...

Provided you've got steady hands, the Flip UltraHD is a great solution for capturing quick video, but as Flip cameras have become more high-end, other companies have met it in the middle then strolled right past it, with better specced, similarly sized...

Flip UltraHD review

 

Too much money for a gadget that doesn't stand up well against the competition

Still the easiest camcorder to use

Chunky, doesn't compare well with its rivals
