A few weeks ago I bought a Flip Ultra HD video camera. I am so impressed with the quality of the videos that this small camera can produce. You will see videos at The Entrepreneur Club that have been shot using this camera.
It certainly works best when it is held very still or an a tripod as it does not have a stabilization system built in although new versions of Apple iMovie editing software now can help to correct any problems that may cause.
The picture is definitely very sharp and the microphone can pick up quite clearly from a good distance.
The camera comes with a rechargeable battery pack but will take 2 AA batteries. It is recharged via the USB port although a separate charger can be purchased. For those that are adventurous an underwater housing is available. Simple editing software is included that will be fine for most people to start with. You can easily upload to YouTube.
