Just got my new Flip camcorder (early Christmas)hitting the lake tomorrow and and can't wait to use it. Any reviews out there? Jet

Norbi uses his all the time... pretty sure he has some Flip only vids on Vimeo you could check out. I'm picking one up for Christmas as well and am stoked to use it.

The only complaints I've heard are the zoom sux and if the filmer is moving the footage can come out super shakey. Other than that people love it.

Did you get the mino or ultra HD? I have been thinking of one of those,however i'm concerned about the shakiness too.

Had one all summer and filmed from the boat. Very easy to use but has no image stabilization. My last camcorder, canon z series, had "digital image stabilization", and more high end cams have optical image stabilization. Footage comes out super shaky unless you develop a method for keep the camera really still.

I have a mac and importing into Imovie is super easy - just one click. Have to make sure I film judiciously, though. Also, the flip camera allows you to delete clips, so it works like a digital still camera - I love being able to delete bad clips right after taking one, then getting a better one, and then downloading onto my computer a lot more useful footage. Makes the editing go a lot faster.
