Gizmodo rounds up many of the cheap, solid-state camcorders now flooding the market after the success of the Pure Digital Flip Ultra. The verdict? The Flip Ultra, now superseded by the Flip Mino, is still the best overall camera. That’s good news for most, as the price on the Ultra should continue to drop.
Flip Ultra: Yes, the first is still the best, and there are good reasons why so many companies want to capture its success: The Ultra works, and it works well. Low light video is great, the camera feels good in your hand, and it’s so simple that you could probably train your cat to record their own cute videos with it. The small screen is a drawback, but it captures a good chunk of space. The Ultra is the best value of the bunch when you consider the criteria, remaining the Cadillac of cheap pocket camcorders.
