Flip Video Ultra HD review

Flip Video Ultra HD review

Flip Video carved a niche for themselves with point-and-shoot camcorders, and it's a niche which soon got crowded as rival firms offered their own entry-level devices.  The launch of the Mino HD late last year kicked things into 720p high-definition, while squeezing the camcorder down into a super-pocketable size; now the bigger Ultra model gets its own high-def upgrade, in the shape of the Flip Video Ultra HD.  Is there still a place in the range for the chunkier Ultra HD?  SlashGear set to finding out.
