This is a good cam. My daughter got this one as well as a Sony Bloggie and we had to return one of them. As far as I can tell from the cams themselves and reviews, they each have their strengths. The Sony shooots at 1080 while this is only 720. The Flip does better in poor light but there may be a quality advantage to the Sony in good light. The Sony has to be recharged while the Flip takes regular batteries (a huge bonus.) If you are looking at them both, don't be fooled by the screen size. The Sony only actually uses about half of the screen for the image. What sold my daughter was the lens on the Sony that can be turned around to face the shooter. I can only give this four stars because we just didn't really even use it. It does have a good solid quality feel to it though.

Cute but hungry

This camera was a big hit for my 11 year old daughter until the batteries needed to be changed again and again and again and again... you get the point, don't you? ...Read complete review

This camera was a big hit for my 11 year old daughter until the batteries needed to be changed again and again and again and again... you get the point, don't you? We need to invest in the rechargeable battery pack pronto!

    Bought ten most worked as they should one was defective.

    Over all I'd probably pay for something better in the future.

    I ordered this in white on february 5th, sunday night. I received my package on february 7th, tuesday. My shipping was free, because I choose the 5-10 day regular free shipping option. Yet the shipping was super duper fast! I received the product all parts and pieces there and fully in tact! The video camera works amazing, great sound and picture quality. Love!!!

      Comments about UltraHD Video Camera (White, 1 Hour):

      It's unfortunate that Cisco chose to discontinue manufacturing this little camera because it is handy, easy to film with and easy to download. It is great to carry around in a purse or in your car for those moments as a photographer or videographer that you need some motion footage. It is not supposed to be broadcast quality, and it's not of course, but it's not bad. The only drawback is that it only holds an hour of footage. BUT usually you need only a few minutes at a time any way and can download the footage before you need it again. Great for You Tube or blogging, or even as a journalist if you need to take some footage that's not on the schedule. But it's a back-up of course, bring your HD camera or HDV for the real thing.

                Easy to operate, portable, no complicated programs or hardware to fuss with. Received one several years ago for Christmas (I asked for it as soon as first the generation Flip Video was released) and have been using it ever since especially during travels. Have given three as gifts and everyone loves it. There is nothing I dislike about this product. Warning to new users though: this product captures images far better that what is seen on the LCD screen. At the beginning I would delete and retake a lot. I now trust that the images will be great. Film with confidence my friends! This camera will not disappoint.

                    Love the quality of the videos and the easy-to-use software. Also love how this fits in my pocket or purse and I can take it with me anywhere. The one negative is the flip-open USB interface. This is actually the second Flip Video camera I have purchased. The USB interface broke off the first one when it was plugged into the computer to charge; my 3-year-old daughter kicked it. It would be a very easy thing for anyone to accidentally break off.

                        we use it to record and review mock interviews. they're portable and easy to use. you don't get the best video quality of it, but for its portability, ease of use, and price, it's a pretty great deal. i know that these are being phased out especially b/c of hte high quality videos and pics that smart phones take, but these are pretty durable and i'm not afraid to break them.

                          So easy to use I didn't need the directions. Love that you shoot your video and can easily get snapshots from it! Batteries seemed to get used up quickly. Keep an extra set of batteries with you.

                                I attended a social media class and the teacher had this Flip video camera made by Cisco. Great sells material that can be done with this camera. The price was really cheap with what this camera can do. I am making my own disk to sell my product and then I use it for my personal use. Get it and you won't be sorry
