The Flip Video is a simple camcorder for digital video. Variants include the Flip Ultra, the Flip Video Mino, and the Flip Video Mino HD.
The first version was originally released as the "Pure Digital Point & Shoot" video camcorder on May 1, 2006 as a reusable follow-on to the popular (and widely hacked) CVS One-Time-Use Camcorder, a Pure Digital product sold through CVS/Pharmacy stores that was designed for direct conversion to DVD media. This was in turn a line extension of previous digital disposable camera products (sold initially through Ritz Camera and associated brands under the Dakota Digital name). The camcorder was then renamed as the Flip Video a year later. On September 12, 2007, the Flip Ultra was released.
A smaller version of the Flip, the Flip Video Mino, was released on June 4, 2008 The Mino captures video in 640x480 resolution at 30 frames per second. It retails for about $180 (for 2 GB flash memory for about 60 minutes of video) the Mino does not have a 1 GB alternative like the Flip Video does.
The white version of the Mino can be customized by the consumer. The consumer can upload a design, or choose from a selection. The design is then applied to the front of the unit.
The Flip Mino HD was released on Nov 16. It features HD recording capabilities in the same dimensions as the regular Mino. Its internal storage was upgraded to 4 GB (60 minutes) and 2 hours of recording time.
