Bought this unit to made video of a Civil War Clothing Workshop. Despite low light, the U260W performed great. Was surprised that even the images taken in full zoom were acceptable. The dual microphones situated on the front worked well in a situation where a sound system was used. Made 24 separate segments: a full hour's worth of video in total. The two AA batteries were spent by the end, but I thought that was still good. Posted the video on line and it looks good! Ease of use is a big factor in buying this camcorder. This is my second Flip and am hoping this one works without the nagging problem of downloading new software because the old one would not revert to full length capacity even when all videos were deleted. So far, so good on this one, though. Cisco is no longer making these, so I've just ordered another one.
Being a casual person who used to take pictures every now and then, I have found joy in the Flip camera. It does not have many features in the device itself, but it also doesn't need it. It can turn on, record, play back, remove unwanted videos, and zoom in and out. For someone who wants something simple and requires no knowledge on how to operate a video camera, look no further than the Flip.
Having owned the previous original Flip, the biggest complaint I have is the lack of rechargeable batteries. The original Flip had a battery built in and could recharge over USB. The newer Flip HD operates on two AA batteries, and you better make sure to buy a 16 pack of them because you will go by them fast if you like to record long videos. While you are limited to recording only up to an hour total of videos before you need to dump them to a computer, you might as well be limited by the batteries themselves for an hour.
The built in software makes backing up the videos very easy. It also has a built in video editor much like Windows Movie Maker, but I haven't messed with it (because I already like WMM and Adobe Premier). You can also upload to Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter.
Ultimately, this is a very good digital camera for a normal home user, but the normal home user may want to invest in the rechargeable batteries that should have been included in the first place.
I love this little video camera. Everyone complains about the battery life and it is true that you can go through a lot of batteries, but I just use rechargeable ones and that solves that problem. Of course, if I'm away from home with the camera, I'd take a few extra akaline batteries with me, just in case they are needed.
These cameras are no longer being made and it is definitely a shame. They are great. I got two because my old one died and I didn't want to be without one.
Very small and easy to use. the recording quality is amazing for such a small camcorder. the only bad thing is the 2x optical zoom.
I cant say enough good things about this camera. So sad they discontinued this product. Great camera, soooo easy to use. Same size as a phone. Turn it on and its ready to go, no need to wait for loading or for it to get ready. Cant get anything better for this price.
