Going into the store with just 200 dollars I was expecting to walk out with a piece of junk camcorder... Read full review »

Pros Small and disposable
Cons Not really HD, limited lens, short battery life
Recommended it? No

First off, 'Ultra HD' is very misleading. The quality is barely better than 480p, certainly not the 720p you see from the current crop of DSLRs. Second, I have yet to get the FlipShare video program working, so if anyone out there doesn't already have video editing software that can handle mp4... Read full review »
