This review is from: Flip UltraHD Camcorder - White & Chrome, 120 Minutes
Pros: I am a professional filmmaker, I make music videos for bands all the time and I also have my own comedy channel on youtube. I use a sony hvr hd-1000u which is amazing quality. I bought this cam so I can carry it with me just for personal videos so I dont have to lug my huge shoulder cam. I wasnt expecting much from this little cam but I was blown away from the results.
The picture is quite impressive for how little I paid. Before it I used a JVC GZ-HD3U which is a pretty nice HD Camcorder that I spent 600 dollars. on. the flip blows it away.
It can film easily in low light, it has wonderful picture for the price.
Good battery life
HDMI is nice
and is quick and easy to transport to computer.
Cons: Weak image stabilizer...but for the price im not concerned with it
It has trouble with quick movements.
mp4 format has trouble with playback in premiere but a converter can easily help with that.
Other Thoughts: I was using adobe premiere and was editing some of my footage from this camera and a couple of the clips wouldnt play in premiere. theyd show up just wouldnt play. Im pretty sure its not a camera error because they would play when I clicked on them. Just had trouble editing. Im going to try converting the files i had trouble with and see if they work in premiere.READ FULL REVIEW
