5.0 out of 5 stars A comparison between the UltraHD and the original Flip (5- stars), November 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Flip UltraHD Video Camera - Black, 8 GB, 2 Hours (3rd Generation) (Camera)
Length:: 4:27 Mins

This video shows the features of the Flip UltraHD, and it compares it to the original white Flip to show how far Flips have come. I demonstrate the features, size, video quality, and microphone sensitivity. Highly recommended -- but it cannot be compared to full-featured digital camcorders. Note: I deducted a half-star for the inability to turn off image stabilization; sometimes the IS makes the video look jerky, like a series of stills.

Thank you for taking the time to create a comparison video. Let me add that it was the first time that "Zoom" was mentioned. "Zoom" is never mentioned in the produsct descriptions. I'm glad to know it exists.

You're welcome, Robert. The zoom is not dramatic, but at least it's something!

Thank you very much for the video. To be honest I didnt see much of a difference between the two video cameras as far as video. There definitely is with the audio. Percent wise, how much better is the video part with the newest generation? Anyone can answer

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 26, 2012 1:52:43 PM PST
There is definitely a difference. You may not be able to see it here as well because of compression and the small size of the image, but on a full computer screen, there's no contest. And yes, audio is also a huge difference.

I cannot give a percentage, however, because I' have no way to measure it scientifically. Maybe someone else is willing to give it a stab.

Debbie - you mention other higher priced "big boys" video camera's -- what camera would be a step up from this, that may offer longer video recording time?

PLEASE REPLY

Canon, Sony, and Panasonic make handheld video cameras that have more features and, often, expandable memory or cards that can be swapped out. You'll have to do some research to find whether this is a good option for you. These cameras often start at $500 and go up from there.
