Speaking of Flip Cameras ...
I bought a Flip Ultra last summer because the reviews and product information I found indicated that the battery in the Flip Mino needs to be changed at the company when it dies. The Ultra can use AA rechargeable batteries. I find battery life more than adequate with the AA's. I love my ultra and find it surprisingly adequate for a variety of purposes, including filming at night.
Has anyone experienced a "used up" battery with a Mino? If so, do you really need to send the Mino back to the company for a replacement battery? What about the HD Mino - can that battery be exchanged by the end user?
Has anyone had experience with any of the other brands of inexpensive USB video cameras?
Thanks in advance for any information.
