The Flip Slide HD pocket camcorder offers HD video recording and a 3" widescreen with stereo speakers to watch the footage you shot on the go! Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey review the pocket camera that can record 720p video for up to 4 hours and retails for $200.

What You Need To Know

  • The Flip Slide HD is a little larger than what we're used to: it's almost twice the thickness of the Flip Mino and a little wider/longer.
  • The size of the pocket camcorder is for the slide-out screen that's supposed to help show off your videos.
  • We found it fun to play videos for friends but the real problem is the wonky interface.
  • Once you slide the Flip camera out, you can play videos by tapping on them.
  • Swiping or using the swipe strip below the screen takes you to the other videos, but both aren't easy to do due to the inaccuracy of the screen and strip.
  • Tap and hold changes the volume or favorite videos.
  • The camera might move around on the table when you're tapping it.
  • Shooting video is just like video recording on the Flip Mino, except all the controls are on the not very responsive touch screen.
  • We wish they had made the viewfinder a little larger since they had the whole screen to play with.
  • The Flip has the best quality video out of all the pocket camcorders.
  • Normal light video looks great with bright and accurate colors.
  • There's a surprising amount of deal but no image stabilization feature.
  • Low light video is also good, especially for a cheap pocket camcorder.
  • The footage is grainy but you'll have brighter video than expected.

Price

  • $200 with 16 GB of storage.

Rating

  • 2 Seals of Approval out of 5. (How do we rate gadgets?)
  • We love the video quality but using this Flip Slide HD isn't nearly as easy as it should be.
