From the above sheet, we can see that the flip SlideHD is no doubt the best among all flip video camcorders:
Flip SlideHD VS flip Ultra HD

Flip SlideHD has double shooting time than flip Ultra HD, smaller size, lighter weight, bigger screen size and higher screen resolution. Although flip SlideHD is 50 dollars more than flip Ultra HD, it is definitely worth the 50-dolloar considering what you can get with flip SlideHD camcorders.

Flip SlideHD VS flip Mino HD

Flip Mino HD has the smallest weight. However, flip Mino HD is not even as good as flip Ultra HD when it comes to the performance and the quality.

Therefore, flip SlideHD is the best not only among flip cameras, but also almost all video cameras on the market, as Pure Digital Technologies claims.
