Flip Mino unboxing gallery

Flip Mino black and white boxes

A few weeks ago, the Flip Mino was unleashed, becoming the first Flip Video camcorder that included a rechargeable internal battery. All Flips before that run on standard AA batteries. The Flip Mino is also a bit smaller than the original Flip Video camera, and the Flip Ultra. At a price of $179, it’s fairly decent. It’s certainly convenient, since it’s so light and has such a small footprint. Check out our Flip Mino unboxing gallery to get a look for yourself.

The Flip mino is becoming youtuber’s best friend.  I have seen a bunch of videos where they give the Flip a shoutout because they are using it.

Wow, that is a fantastic gallery Gear Live. Very nice shots and this is the first time I’ve heard of the Flip Mino, when was it released?

I read about this on the front page. Someone said it was more for utube users then anything, that made me decide against it. I dont use utube that much so I wouldnt get no benefit from it. I probably wouldnt use it much and I wouldnt pay a whole lot for something that I would rarely use, I take more pictures then anything and I have a digital camera for that.

my opinion is that if your not going to be using this camcorder to get some quick videos to upload on the web it’s not worth it. It would be much better to pay the extra bit of cash and get yourself a better quality camcorder. Don’t get me wrong with all this negativity, but if u are a youtuber, you should snag this up right away. Also, like littlebull said, if you do take more pictures than video, just get a good digital camera that takes decent videos. For example, I would suggest the Olympus Stylus 1010. This digital camera is extremely small but yet has 7x optical zoom built in (incredible). This also takes decent videos at 640x380 at 30fps.

If you are a youtuber this is one for you!  This little vid. camera is an inexpensive one and it works terrific!

I guess if you travel a lot, or are a youtuber like supercom said, I guess this might be the camera for you. But, I would personally never get this camera because I think it would be more worth it to spend the extra cash and get much better quality.

yeah i dont think i would get this camera either. I dont use utube that much and wouldnt benefit from it anyway. And for 179 dollars I could get something else for that price.

Fantastic price because well, instead of someone buying an expensive camera/camcorder or something, this would be a good and decent choice. Nice images and I’ll keep my eye out at Flip Video products…they look stunning.
