How firm is the USB arm attached on here? I feel as though you would be SOL if that broke off or got damaged at all.
Why would they make this without removable storage??? I guess if you’re able to upload every 8GB you’d be o.k…
Poor taste miners joke!
These cameras with flip-out USB arms really need a USB female to male connecting cable - trust me. You don’t want to have to support a dangling camera (assuming you can even get the arm to plug in, if your USB ports are recessed) while it transfers files. The cables aren’t expensive, but it really should come with one.

grabbed one of these earlier this year. As great as the video is, the sound is much better than i wouldve expected.
Digital camcorders are great if you aren’t expecting to replace a full-size unit. The digital zoom comes at a high price in the loss of resolution.
But they are so tiny you’re more apt to carry it and capture moments.
Has anyone taken one of these to a concert or otherwise poorly lit, soundfilled area and tried using them? How were the results?
I borrowed a friend’s Kodak Zi8 for a few months last year, and after using it, I can’t let myself buy a Flip. I use the camera to record lessons for review (I’m a teacher), and 8 GB without the option to add more room is pretty limiting.
Here’s a review of the MinoHD that mentions some of the issues. I think it’s a great price, but I’ll hold out for a great price on a better camera.
Lol man, that timing. I was dieing the past month looking through two wootoffs and comparing so many HD camcorders getting ready for a convention I’m going to this weekend.
I’m actually kinda glad that this came today because theres no way it’d get to my house in 2 days which is when I’d need it by lol, otherwise I would have been mad at myeslf, reason being I just bought a minoHD flipcam but its only 60 minutes not 120, albeit it was cheaper and used only a handful of times so its still in like-new condition, but had this woot come maybe 3-4 weeks ago I’d have jumped on it SO fast.
Disappointed in myself a bit, but not that much since woots timing is supremely impeccable and would have come in a few days after the convention anyways
Most of my videos are from the Flip Ultra HD. More or less the same except for the size of the unit.
I might need this for a project or podcast later. I do not need HD; does anyone know if I can shoot the video in lower resolution?
Speaking of the Kodak Zi8
After reading some reviews, I have noticed that earlier in the year there were connectivity issues with Macs. Since these are refurbished, does anyone know if this could be an issue?
