This is a sweet little camera, and like all Flip cameras, is extremely easy to use. It records up to 2 hours of 30 fps video, HD (high definition.) This means the image and sound are both really good quality. I got mine used on ebay very inexpensively and am pleased with its performance. It zooms only 2x, but for some things like family events that's usually all you need. It takes 2 AA batteries and is programmed with an internal memory; you don't put an SD card in it. All Flips plug into your USB port and the videos upload to the Flip program on your computer, which installs immediately when you plug it in for the first time. This is where you save, trim, save still images from your video clips, transfer to other files if you wish. The program will even allow you to import certain other non-Flip video recordings. If you export your Flip video clips to other files on your computer, then your other video editing programs can tweak them up. I have Windows Live Movie Maker (comes with my Windows 7 OS - operating system) and I'm able to attach captions right on the video and do other neat stuff if I choose.
I have other Flip cameras: U2120 (2 hrs., 8 GB, 30 fps), U32120 (2 hrs., 8 GB, 60 fps), F260 (1 hrs., 2 GB, 30 fps) and like them all a lot. One negative note, on the batteries not the camera: the Flip brand battery packs you would use for this U1120 camera (the equivalent of 2 AAs), are very wallet draining because they wear out so fast from recharging -- via the USB port -- and reusing. You might as well buy and discard regular AAs, or buy good quality rechargeables, which you would have to charge on a separate charger. Because this uses AAs there are many other better options than the Flip battery pack. I spent a fortune on multiple Flip brand AA battery packs and won't go down that road any more.
I have no problems with this camcorder, great price, picture and easy to use.The larger screen does make a difference and it was much easier to shoot with than the Mino. Although bulkier, the Ultra felt sturdier and more solid, but it doesn't fit really well in the packaged micofiber case. Since the Ultra also has a rubberized body it makes it that much harder to the device in and out of the pouch. I'm looking into a separate case.
Fool-proof usage, and the picture quality and sound quality are very, very decent. I'm no techie, so they're perfectly sufficient for my needs (filming family gatherings, vacation escapades, and occasionally to document performances or projects I've completed professionally as an artist). Twice now the battery has run out on me in the middle of filming something. The problem is not so much how long the battery lasts - I've gotten almost 4 hours of filming using standard AA batteries, longer with lithium batteries. The problem is that there's no warning that the battery is running out until it flashes "Low Battery" at you once and then dies. Wish it had an earlier warning system so that I knew when to carry back-up batteries with me...
I have the Ultra 60 min with a 1.5 screen that I really like! I just bought this one for a friend and compared them, Quality of everything digital is the same, imo excellent. What really impressed me was the larger screen and the much nicer feel. very much an upgrade! Great product!!!
I bought the Flip basically because I got such a great deal on it. I also bought the underwater case to go with it. I have been looking for a waterproof camera for a while, and this seemed to be a good compromise. I have already used it surfing and I'm very impressed with the movie quality that this camera produces. Also, I like that it's super simple and doesn't have a lot of buttons. The only negative thing is that regular batteries don't last a long time, but I suppose that makes sense. I'd suggest getting some lithium batteries and that should help that out.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.
