Flip Mino HD for you handheld recording needs

I was lucky enough to win a Flip Mino HD from during his IZEAFest ticket contest. I was so excited. So far I’m very pleased with several features:

  • Size: with dimensions of 3.94″ x 1.97″ x 0.63″ and weighing only 3.3oz this slides easily into a pocket or purse.
  • Battery Life: 60 minutes may not sound long but it hasn’t died on me yet
  • Auto Shut Off: there have so many times now that I’ve turned it on waiting for one of the kids to repeat a goofy trick or funny saying only to be stuck WAITING, the flip turns off after a few minutes to save battery life.
  • PC Connection: uses a Flip up USB connector; NO more tangled cables
  • Power-On Time: it only takes a handful of seconds to be camera ready, this is important when you are mostly filming kids
I know there are a ton of technical points of interest that would intrigue most people but you won’t find that information here. I like the Flip Mino HD because it’s small, extremely easy to use and upload and the video quality is so much better than my phone. My one complaint is the plug in USB connector; while it’s easy to use I foresee it breaking due to the fact that it has to “hang” on the computer while charging or uploading videos. A flexible adapter would easily fix this little problem.

Another feature that Pure Digital Technologies offers is the ability to completely personalize your camera with design from their gallery or an image of your very own. It’s going to make gift giving even more special.

While the Flip Mino HD won’t replace our JVC Everio for Christmas morning or school plays this is our go to device for every day recordings.

Currently Amazon is running a sale on the Flip Mino HD, for the price of $169.99 plus it’s eligible for Free Super Saver Shipping. Check it out!
