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.
