Pros None. Unfortunately, I wish I could say something positive, but I can't based on my experience.
Cons Poor recording capability. Does not charge is USB port like it should.Camera was shipped with out the soft case or user manual. Flip pretended like my order never existed. No technical support. More recording capability from a camera.
Summary Do not purchase or you will regret!!! This was the worst purchase I ever made, & Flip refused to resolve any issues which as a consumer, I don't understand? How can you, ignore an order you shipped? If a company will not stand behind their product, how can they succeed? WORST PURCHASE EVER!!! BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY!
Pros Flip Ultra has easy access and holds quite alot of video, and has a tripod hole.
Cons I have to change the batteries every 3 uses!! It has TERRIBLE battery life, and the quality isn't even that great of HD. Not very good for YouTube video uploads.
Summary I got this camera last year, and have started using it for a YouTube Channel. It has terrible quality, terrible battery life, and I can't importt files into movie maker.
Pros All, this camera rocks
Cons None, I cant find one, batteries may drain fast, but that's expected, your videoing duh
Summary My sister and I have had this camera for awhile, she has had it like 5 months and I've had mine for around a year or two, mine is green and hers is pink. I use my FLIP for tons of video taking, and it is also durable, even though it isn't really planned on, it gets tossed around inside of pockets, so get's scratched, but is my daily video camera, so it will get some expectant wear and tear. It is a good camera for anyone that needs one, and it is cheaper, so that's also something that's good about it. I haven't had any problems with mine, except after tons and tons and tons of video recording, the batteries get low, but DUH you're using a camera for long video so it will drain, so that's expectant. I really love this camera, and I bet you will too.
Pros Nothing, it may be small but it takes sub par video and the camera is unreliable, so is the company
Terrible Customer Service
Not worth the money if you value your memories
Summary Camera battery willl fail, even if within warranty, they want to replace with a refurbished camera.
They take forever to send the replacement, if I didn't keep calling they may have never sent it.
They don't recover the video even though they say they will.
They don't call you back, even though they say they will.
Spend your money elsewhere
Pros Small and Portable. Can take it anyware for those spontaneous moments when you generally would not have a video camera at your side.
Cons No memory card available
Summary Awesome little unit! I take it everywhere i go, sometimes i use it other times i dont. But it sure is nice to have for the "One Shot" that nobody else got, because it wasnt the place for a bulky size camera. Albeit it cant compete with your CamCorder but that is not the issue.... Sometimes i take both Cameras with me (Cam Corder& Flip) as they are too me for two totally different applications. Right now my unit is in the mail back too Cisco as it stopped working, which is the other plus..... Customer Service Very proffessional! They tried to fix problem over phine but could not. So they sent me an RMA# and told me to send it back for repair & if they could not fix it they would send me a new of that model or the next best one if my model was out of stock. Can't ask for much more than that. I most certainly would recommend any one to buy one as i am satisfied with it.
