5.0 out of 5 stars HUGE improvement for the Flip - sleeker design, much higher video quality, September 27, 2010
This review is from: Flip UltraHD Video Camera - White, 8 GB, 2 Hours (3rd Generation) (Camera)
This is now my 3rd Flip camera (they are all still in operation, I just can't help upgrading when a higher quality product hits the market). I always fall in love with my new Flip video camera and this one is no exception - I prefer the design of the Ultra HD over the Mino because of the larger screen, and the new 3rd generation is noticeably thinner than last year's model which makes it lighter and easier to hold. HUGE HUGE HUGE improvement in video quality on the 3rd generation model - image stabilization and now 60 frames per seconds (FPS) compared to 30 FPS in the previous HD model. This 60 FPS results in noticeably higher quality video and the ability to zoom more effectively. This model comes with a rechargeable battery pack so you can charge via your usb port on your computer, or if you are traveling and don't have access to USB the Flip Ultra also allows you to put 3 AA batteries for videographers who are "on the go."

Another A++ product from the folks up in San Francisco who design this product. Go out and get one - it's time for an Upgrade to the 3rd generation of Flip!!!!

The screen size on the mino and ultra are the same. The ultra kinda looks bigger because of the bigger body. I put the two together and they are the same to me.

Image stabilization only gives marginal improvement. I recommend an inexpensive accessory called the readysteady. I've got one and it really works!

I'm concerned about this review being posted by a reviewer who has only posted three reviews: all of Flip products, all of which got five stars.
