I have owned the orignal 30 minute version and I am totally happy with it. I decided to get a backup since soon they will not be availalbe. I have never had a problem. I noticed with the newer version, the snapshots are much more clear. They are just so easy to use and tote around.

I didn't purchase this on Amazon and I DON'T work for the Flip people. I was in an accident with a tractor in August and though the tractor was clearly at fault, there was still some doubt as to "percentage of accountability". Fortunately, I was zero at fault, but I thought about it and wondered how nice it would have been to have some sort of "dash cam" to have recorded exactly what happened.
When I saw the this HD Flip go on sale I bought one just to see how it would work out. Lo and behold, two weeks later, I got a bogus traffic stop (an aside issue), but when the officer approached my car after taking my license, I swung the cam around to get the results of the stop. When I got home and viewed the video I was AMAZED by not only the video quality, but the sound quality as well. Watch the actual video portion here: [...] Even though there was strong back light, the video of both myself, as well as the audio was crystal clear!! I have recommend this to several people and would definitely purchase another one. If the video link doesn't work, you can email me and I'll send it
The video is real-time proof of the quality of the picture/sound.
I do wish the battery was interchangeable, but it does last almost 2 hours on a full charge.
