The best point-and-shoot HD camcorder around, the Flip UltraHD

We had a chance to use the Flip Mino HD Camcorder, which we loved. It’s a 720p point-and-shoot digital camcorder you can slip in your shirt or pants pocket, with a built-in USB jack and easy to use software for Mac or IBM. How could Flip possibly improve on it?

Well they did. With the Flip UltraHD Camcorder. The Flip UltraHD Camcorder isn’t as pretty as its little brother. It’s slightly thicker, and the buttons aren’t recessed and touch-sensitive. But the slightly uglier form factor is way overcompensated for with some truly awesome features.

The Flip UltraHD Camcorder has an even better picture than the Flip Mino HD Camcorder. It looks sharper, and the colors seem more realistic and vibrant. The sound quality is just as good.

Where the Flip UltraHD Camcorder really shines is:

  • That it has twice the battery life — lasting around 2.5 hours per charge
  • That if your battery runs out, you can use regular AA batteries! Meaning that you don’t have to worry about charging the included rechargable battery via the USB port if you just want to get up and shooting quickly.
  • That it has twice the storage capacity — 8 gigs instead of 4, meaning that you can store up to 2 hours of footage at a time. Making the Flip UltraHD Camcorder far more suitable for things like taping your kids’ play or sporting event.
  • It has a larger screen (2 inches)
  • And best of all, the Flip UltraHD Camcorder is even cheaper than the Flip Mino HD Camcorder.

So better features, better picture quality, the same ease of use, and a lower price? The Flip UltraHD Camcorder is nearly perfect for easily capturing video and saving the memories or sharing them online (you can upload videos t Youtube with one button in the included software).

That’s why we’re giving it an unprecedented 10/10and a Must Buy!

Amazon’s doing their coy little “add to cart to see price” on the Flip UltraHD Camcorder, but it’s a bargain at $169.99. Pick one up today. It’s an HD camcorder that’s perfect for capturing daily memories, and it’s so easy to use, it makes a great gift for a child, your college student, or your elderly parents.
