No problems

Pros: It works excellently, never had a problem with it. It's a nice little design and functions well for the price. It's video isn't bad considering the price, and it has worked well for recording my cat doing all of the odd things that she does. I have not tried messing with settings too much and have mostly used it casually from time to time, so I wouldn't be able to tell you much for technical details.

Cons: It is a shame it doesn't come WITH a charger, it takes quite some time to charge while connected to your computer and the flip software is very poor. Videos default with flips own unique codec, and it can be a hassle to put it in the type of video format you want. This is a HUGE annoyance and a big con, but I still give it five eggs for functionality of the actual product.

Great until the lens cover breaks

Pros: As long as you don't expect this camera to do more than it was designed to do, and as long as nothing breaks, you will be quite happy with it. The minimalist design is a real pleasure when contrasted with some of the kitchen-sink products on the market these days. Even serious photographers can appreciate the always-ready, no-thought-required nature of this product.

Cons: The lens cover is easy to break and the manufacturer is not very helpful as far as getting it fixed is concerned. It's easy to find DIY fixes on the web, but you really shouldn't have to do so.

Other Thoughts: I wonder what happens when Cisco routers break. Do network admins just Google "cisco router broken frammis cover" or something?

Decent camcorder, needs lens protection

Pros: This is very easy to use and works well outside. It outputs to MP4 format, so it is easy to play on lots of devices directly from the camera.

Cons: The camera lens is flush with the front of the camera. It is very easy to get fingerprints on when turning on and off, very easy to brush with a finger in normal use. Even worse, if you lay it down with the lens down, the lens scratches easily (found out the hard way).

good entry level camcorder

Pros: 1, small size
2, 720p HD video
3, can use other AA batteries
4, software easy to use.

Cons: 1, may be a random problems, Google flip ultraHD batteries problems, you will find a lot of people like me, have problem recharging the batteries. so i just use normal batteries.
2, no close up focus
3, no image stabilization, so don't drink while u recording
4, very very bad customer services, they don't really read your email and have to ask the same question again and again. wasted so many time to deal the them.
5, no HDMI cable, you cannot watch the video through TV, you have to buy the cable for extra cost.

Other Thoughts: my ultra HD is not turn on after exactly 12 month. if the customer service can give me a solution in timely manner, i may buy another flip.

after 2 weeks more then 10 emails contact the customer services, i give up and just bought a Kodak Zi8. i don't understand why they take so long to just come up a solution.

Good if you have a surgeon's hand

Pros: Very, very easy to use. If camcorder is steady and your subject isn't moving, this takes great video. Good for small (screen area size, not file size, meaning not HD) web videos.

Cons: Very poor low light performance (especially compared to my Panasonic miniDV) and basically this should only be used outdoors and maybe inside with lots of natural sunlight through a window. Does not have image stabilization which is a must if you plan on recording while walking (or even moving). Your hand must be so steady in order not to see frames jumping. Also, there is noticeable blur when your subject is moving or even worse if you are moving the camera AND your subject is moving. This reduces it's use to very specific situations which at the moment I'm hard pressed to find.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a travel camcorder for quick, spur of the moment video. My intention was to eventually replace my miniDV camcorder with a smaller version, such as this, but these little guys just aren't there yet. Image stabilization is necessary and I would pay more for a compact camcorder that had one. If you only plan to use this for lame Facebook and YouTube uploads then you've found your camera. If you plan to archive your videos and use them for home movies, I urge your to look elsewhere. Despite this, I believe Cisco is on the right track with Flip, and if they just add IS and more bells and whistles, I would even consider buying a better model, if they are going to make one.

Great bang for the buck

Pros: Small
Great quality
Fits anywhere goes everywhere
Light weight

Cons: Could use a stabilization feature.

Other Thoughts: I love it and would recommend it to a friend. Much better than the old clunky video camera that was 1,000 bucks in my day.
