Let’s make this simple. If you like the original Flip Mino, you’re going to ache for the MinoHD. Same kettle of bananas, only this time with 720/30p video recording instead of boring old VGA. Want to know what that looks like? Press play on the box below…
There’s only a couple of real issues with what is one of the best camcorders I’ve held in my hands. The first is that it’s mono sound recording. Not much you can do there if you want to keep the weight down. The second is the price.
Now, £169.99 isn’t that expensive but it is a) around double what you’d pay for the VGA Mino and b) a little bit more than other Full HD camcorders to be hitting the shelves very soon.
Doubtless the Flip MinoHD will still do well. The battery lasts a lifetime, the 4GB/60mins recording memory is ace and I’ll be very sad when it’s time to send mine back.
