5.0 out of 5 stars Love it--great for home use and 'camera 2', November 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Flip MinoHD Video Camera - Black, 8 GB, 2 Hours (3rd Generation) (Camera)
I love this camera--it's great for home use--I'm a big fan of the 60fps feature and honestly, for 95% of any of the video I do, 720p is plenty.

I've used this camera with surprising result in conjunction with a Panasonic professional camera--the color balance needs some tweaking in Premiere, but this camera keeps up with professional grade hardware if you use an external (i.e. take your audio from another camera) audio source and it's not your primary shot. For the price, there's no excuse not to have multiple camera shots if you've already got a professional set up.

For my personal video stuff (home videos, family stuff, dumb videos of the dogs) it's surprisingly easy to use, my only complaint (as with all hand held video cameras) is that the audio is a little weak--but this camera holds its own with the rest of the handheld video camera market (actually performs better than my old Panasonic SD9).

So you don't have zoom, or manual focus, or any of those built in filters (that no one in their right mind would use... who really wants to take video with sepia?), but you can't beat the price and the ease of use means that I (technophile geek) and my wife (not quite a geek yet) can use this camera without any real complaints.
