Flip MinoHD 4GB (2010)
720p HD video, 60fps; Image stabilization; Digital zoom; 4GB storage (1 hour of video); Accessory port; Swing-out USB arm; Rechargeable battery
This latest (late 2010) Flip MinoHD is a modest but welcome upgrade over
predecessor. The new model, a slimmer, slicker cousin to the UltraHD,
features a redesigned sensor which
shoots about an hour of 720p HD video at 60 frames per second and
captures richer colors. That's nice, though several competitors already
shoot 1080p. Most importantly, the UltraHD now feature image
stabilization, which goes a long way toward smoothing out footage. The
other notable addition is an accessory port, which can be used to hook
up external storage devices, a pico projector, or an external mic. The
dead-simple interface and sharing experience remains intact as well.
This simple update doesn't look like much, but it actually goes a long
way toward resolving the shortcomings of previous models and places the
Flip, once again, among the elite of the pocket-cam category.
