Flip Video has unveiled its fall line of UltraHD and MinoHD (left) pocket camcorders. Most models now have built-in image stabilization and capture video at 720p/60 frames per second. The UltraHD 2-hour version (black or white) debuts the FlipPort, a proprietary connector that can be plugged into specially designed accessories including external microphones (wired or wireless) for audio pickup close to the subject and external batteries for extra power.
The pocket video camera market is pretty crowded; legions of companies such as Flip, Kodak and Samsung are vying for your business with their dedicated camcorders, not to mention the many new smartphones boasting 1080p video recording as a feature. Telling camcorders apart can be a challenge, since many of them tout nearly identical features at very similar (and sometimes very different) price points.
Flip Video turned the camcorder industry on its head by proving that minimal hardware features sell, especially when tightly integrated with easy-to-use software for your computer. Now, Flip has introduced its most ambitious model yet, the Slide HD, with a 3-inch touchscreen that slides out at a 45-degree angle to show your videos. The camera embeds 16-Gigabytes of memory for storing up to 4 hours of high-def video.
