Flip SlideHD Camcorder

With an incredible 4 hours of recording time the Flip SlideHD Camcorder really turns up the competition on small camcorders. This shoots the best footage of all Flip Cameras. It is crystal clear. You can think of this camera as the “Flip Phone” version of a Flip Camera. That is to say, it’s better than a regular flip in almost every way.

The slide bar is a little confusing at first but you do get the hang of it. Its really not that big of a deal, but some people find this frustrating and give the camera a poor rating. I don’t understand that. I love that they put a headphone jack on the camera. In the past two models I felt that the video got very pixelated when the camera was zoomed. I don’t see that as much with the Flip Slide Hd. The video stays pretty clear when zooming.

The menu and functions on this camera are completely intuitive. In no time at all, you’ll figure out how to start, stop, delete, replay, and scroll through the first few movie clips. It is easy to offer instant gratification to the children, who eagerly awaited the opportunity to see and hear themselves on film.

While you are here make sure you get the USA GEAR Protective HD Camcorder Case with Magnetic Clasp and Wrist Strap for Flip Camcorders. This package also contains a mini tripod so your video will be easy to shoot clear and without shake. Also great for self video, just set up on the tripod, get in front of the camera and away you go.

It is a pleasant surprise to discover that the “set up” of this camera was easier than setting the time on a sports watch, and consisted only of scrolling through the date and time. Within thirty seconds of turning on the camera, it was ready to begin shooting the first movie clip.
