Flip Video UltraHD 2hrs
Advantages: Lightweight, good quality
Disadvantages: Can't put videos onto DVD without separate software
I bought the flip video hd for a gift for my husband while we were expecting our first baby - a proper dad gadget!
The flip is lightweight, very easy to use and can record up to 2 hours of video before you have to transfer to a computer to free up space. We were very happy with the quality of both the sound and video on the flip.
It's easy to connect to a computer, just flip the USB connection out the side of the flip and plug it in! The software you get with the flip is brilliant, easy to store your videos, rename and organise them. The software is also great for editing your videos, you can stick video clips together, add text and background music etc, it's brilliant!
This version of the flip takes rechargeable batteries, it came with a battery pack. I prefer rechargeable batteries over having to plug the device in to charge as you can easily carry extra batteries around with you!
The only downside to the flip is that you can not copy your videos to DVD very easily at all, I have only managed to do this by using separate conversion software and it can get a bit complicated! Personally I don't have a great need to put the videos onto dvd's but if it's an important feature for you then I would look elsewhere!
Recently I have been using my smartphone to record a lot more than the flip as my phone is also hd, however, a stand can be fitted to the flip so it's still great for times such as Christmas morning etc.
Summary: Great for catching memories! Recommend unless you hope to copy your videos to DVD
