The pros of the Flip UltraHD are exactly what you would expect – it’s a compact HD camcorder that’s it incredibly easy to use for the average consumer and takes great HD video, which is only what you would expect from a Flip.

The cons mostly come by size comparison to the MinoHD which at 3.94” x 1.97” x 0.63” (H x W x D) is smaller and sleeker and equally easy to use. However, the UltraHD still fits in a large pocket and the size brings some advantages over the MinoHD:

One real con I have seen is that the built-in flip-out USB arm can be a pain depending on your PC set-up so you may need an extension cable. Here’s how it is supposed to work:

All in all, the Flip UltraHD is a fun, quality pocket HD camcorder. The MSRP is US$199.00, but Amazon seems to be currently selling the UltraHD for US$162.00 and you may find an even better deal if you shop around.
