The Flip Ultra Video Camera

The Flip Ultra video camera is a piece of crap. Don't buy one.

I've had mine since Christmas 2008 and in the last month it has entirely quit working twice. The opening screen comes on and doesn't go away. It is unusable.

The solution to this vile set of circumstances is to let it set without batteries for 24 to 72 hours. That's the solution. You have a camera that you can't use for one to three days at a time. So if you have something you want to record, just ask if it can wait for one to three days, till you can get to it.

What if everything worked this well. Your refrigerator quit working? Unplug it for three days, then it'll be OK. Till a week later when we have the same problem.

Flip cameras have lost me forever. There has to be a better brand. Like any brand.
