    Flip Action Tripod hands-on

    By 19 April 2011

    Flip may be in its death throes after being axed by Cisco, but we managed to get our hands on their Action Tripod, something we’ve been wanting for a while. Flip have always pushed the action angle on their Flip camcorders and the Action Tripod provides...

    Flip Video UltraHD review

    By 23 December 2010

    Flip more or less invented the pocket camcorder market so when we heard that it was launching an updated range, we were very keen to get our mitts on them. The third-generation Flip UltraHD is similar to the last model, with its 720p video capture, although...

    Flip Mino HD 2nd gen camcorder review

    Flip Mino camcorder review

    By 9 October 2008

    We liked the Flip Video Ultra Edition for its pure simplicity. But no sooner had the Ultra launched in the UK, rumours started appearing about the launch of the Mino stateside. In-between times the pocketable video camera landscape has changed. So can...

    Flip Video Ultra Edition camcorder review

    By 16 May 2008

    Ever since "happy slapping" caused a media furore in 2005, video on the move has been in the public eye. But filming with a phone is such a bore and camcorders are too big and expensive. What’s the solution? Well Flip Video think they have the answer,...
