New Flip Camera Not Exactly a Diamond in the Rough

Sure, it was leaked over a week early, but the Flip Slide HD is still quite a surprise in many ways.

If you’d asked us to bet, we’d have put money on the next Flip camera including minor-but-important enhancements like image stabilization and perhaps a 1080p sensor with better low-light performance.

After all, competitive products like the Kodak Zi8 and Sony Bloggie get great reviews for these simple incremental feature additions, and it’s been nearly a year and a half since the original Flip Mino HD came out.

But apparently you get to play by different rules when you own nearly 40 percent of the “shoot and share” camera market, and Flip’s latest cam eschews the spec upgrade game in favor of repackaging the Mino HD into a radical new form factor with a tilt-slide screen that’s designed as much for playback as it is for recording.

It’s an interesting take on sharing video, but we can’t say it’s worth it — especially not for $279. Read on for our full review.
