The new Ultra HD Flip Camera with 4GB flash comes with FlipShare pre-loaded; it makes editing and sharing your videos easy.

I love my Ultra HD Flip video camera. When I first pulled it out of its box, I couldn’t believe just how small it really was! I was amazed! Don’t forget that I’m from the time that a video camera was a massive thing … the kind where you would slip a VHS tape into! I usually try to discover how to work with a gadget without reading the instructions first. I was amazed to discover that it had a USB plug built right into the camera!! Yeah, you just push a little button and out it pops!! So very cool. I had a harder time trying to figure out how to put the batteries in. Once I checked the paperwork, I was surprised to discover that you just slide out the front of the camera and that’s where you insert the batteries! How cool is that!? Next, I plugged my camera into the USB port and instantly the “new hardware” was detected! Really easy.
The picture is great and the camera is very easy to use. The video camera is nice and compact, so it fits in my purse or even my pocket nicely. It’s totally dummy-proof, right out of the box (all you do is put in the batteries that come with it)! It instantly turns on and off, and it fits comfortably in the hand. If you can point and shoot, then you can record with this lightweight camera. The sound is great, and picks up even the soft background sounds.
It retails for approximately $129.99 so it isn’t expensive at all. What more can I say? It really is the ideal little video camera!
I would definitely recommend this device! It’s certainly worth the investment.
I probably will invest in the following extras, to make my experience even better:
