Flip Mino HD

As listeners and readers might recall, I had the opportunity to check out the Flip Mino last June and wrote a review. Now the folks at Flip have upped the ante with the Flip Mino HD.

The device is exactly the same size and configuration as the previous version but the on-board storage was raised to 4GB to enable it to store 60 minutes of H.264 video footage in HD (720p 9Mbps VBR).

Flip is now offering to customize the device and is offering a special line-up of Valentine’s Day themes as well as others and also allows you to upload your own image to be added to the device via their design center.

The Flip Mino was fun, the Flip Mino HD is the same kind of fun with added video quality in the form of 720p High Definition video which looks VERY good.

Here is a test video I shot of Peter Hughes during the Infoshot segment of the show last night.

Lightweight and easy to use, with the Flip Mino HD you have a powerful and handy tool for capturing the moment while on the go. Once you have the video you want, you just connect the device to your PC and run the software contained on the Flip to edit and share your videos.

  1. I like what I see with this product, but there is one feature that I would like to see as a stand alone or an opition use with the Flip and that is an audio only. Example is a feature to record audio if you are in a meeting where cameras are not permitted. However, I would love to see both combined on the flip with a switch to go either way.
