Flip UltraHD U260 Camcorder Review

Flip UltraHD U260

I was previously using an older Sony Handycam and the Sony GC1 Netsharing Cam to create my videos, but decided I wanted to step up to HD. Since money is tight and the holidays are coming I wanted something low-cost. When I saw the Flip UltraHD priced at just $58.99 at I decided to go for it. It's got some pros and cons. These are the details:

· Shoot up to 1 hour of amazing HD video on the easy-to-use, pocket-sized UltraHD
· Press the big red button to start capturing vibrant HD video (720p / 30fps) on the super-simple user interface
· Comes with 4 GB of built-in memory, letting you capture up to 1 hour of HD video; no additional memory cards required
· Power up with the included standard AA batteries. And for even better charge time, try using the Flip Video Rechargeable Battery Pack (sold separately)
· Connect the built-in USB arm to your PC or Mac to launch pre-loaded FlipShare software
· Use FlipShare software to organize and edit your videos, capture photos, send video greeting cards and create custom movies
· Share videos privately using FlipShare's attachment-free email or by creating Flip Channels; post publicly with direct video shares to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube
· Watch your videos on your HDTV by connecting your UltraHD to your HDTV with the Flip Video HDMI Mini Cable (sold separately)
· Flip UltraHD White U260 Video Camera records high-quality H.264 HD videos that are compatible with most video-playing applications, including Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, and iTunes
· Video: 16:9 widescreen, HD 720p (1280 x 720) at 30 frames per seconds (fps) progressive scan; recorded as MP4 files
· Included in package: Flip UltraHD video camera, two standard AA batteries, user guide

All in all I would recommend this little camcorder to anyone wishing to include HD videos in their blog posts.

Here is a link to the: Flip UltraHD U260 Camcorder video review that I put together in the hopes it might help other people decide. The review includes a video I took with the Flip.

  1. The Flip UltraHD Camcorder produces stunning HD 720p video that will look crisp and clear on your HDTV. These are known for high-quality video, and UltraHD combines that signature Flip quality with the latest in HD technology. Thanks a lot.
