    IMHO, your better off using the Iphone 4 if you want to get HD videos. . or I would suggest a Sanyo Xacti if you want a full videocam that is as compact as the Flip. Try to google Flip vs Xacti. Hope this helps.

    I'm using a Flip Ultra HD 120 min. Its a nice no-frills camcorder. Bought it for around P7K from Amazon.

    Only complaint so far is that the wide end of the lens seems too narrow.

    I don't know about Iphone 4 but you can also take a look at the new ipod touch.

    we have a flip mino hd. pretty useful, but its zoom is very weak and its hard to keep your hands steady.

    Thanks for the replies, peeps!

    I got an iPhone 4 but the battery easily rans out.

    I am decided to buy Flip Video, it will be available in Philippines on December accdg to a sales promoter in rustans dept.

    I checked the internet reviews, in facebook, and youtube, a lot of users of Flip video becs of the flipshare software. No need to store video in pc hardisk or external drive dahil sa cloud computing technology.

    There is a Promo In Spore which might be launch here , The promo includes a tripod, wall charger. All items are packed in one box. Take note. The wall charger doesn't work and you have to charge the unit via Usb only:( Its a dealbreaker for me as it ages when you charge via Usb. I returned it back and instead bought a Sony Bloggie instead which freebies included are extra battery and case. ( I was forced to buy a separate battery charger though because for me its very important)

    >>> try Robinsons Pioneer. I can't remember which store but they have it on display when I went there last January. I just don't remember which flip mino model they have on display. Btw does it capture images or is it just an hd video cam?
