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
i borrowed my friends mino same model as this one. i read the reviews online saying it had good recording in dark concerts and sound was great. i looked up videos and was convinced so i borrowed it. my link has the videos from the mino. i was sad there was that thumping sound from the loud music vibrating through the air hitting the mic of the mino. i don’t blame the mino since there were a lot amps/stereo’s stacked on the walls.
