Flip Cam Gets a Hi-Def Upgrade With 720p Shooting MinoHDFlip, the grandaddy of cheap camcorders, is the latest to join the hi-def video club with the release of the Flip MinoHD. The MinoHD joins the Zi6 and EZ300 in capturing 720p widescreen video, and it will save up to 60 minutes of footage on 4GB of built-in storage. Its the same size as the original Mino, and it has a 2-hour Li-ion battery—though with the way we've seen these HD cams suck down power, we're cautiously optimistic. The $230 camcorder comes in black or your own design, and while it's pricier than similar cams, Flip has a great reputation so we'll reserve judgment until we see it ourselves—which will be verrrrry soon. Stay tuned for a full review, fact sheet down below. [Flip]
