Jeff Patch checks out the Flip UltraHD and Travel Savvy Mom gives one away!

Jeff Patch at “Have Pack, Will Travel” has just blogged about “New and Innovative Cameras for Adventurous Travelers“. He takes a look at the Flip UltraHD Camcorder that we reviewed last week. His conlusion? Similar to ours. He wrote:

… [The Flip] is the ultimate in portability. If you are shooting memories, you’d be hard pressed not to justify owning one of these to slip in your pocket or bag and be able to shoot decent quality HD video wherever you are. They are extremely easy and convenient to use, but the video quality is nowhere near as good as the above mentioned Canon camcorders.

We agree. All in all, we are very pleased with the Flip UltraHD. As we wrote in our review, it doesn’t try to do too much, but what it does, it does very well.

He also checks out an Olympus Stylus waterproof cameras, an Olympus PEN E-P1, a Nikon D5000, a VholdR ContourHD Helmet Video Camera, and the Canon VIXIA line of High Definition Camcorders. Check out his post here.
