    Kinda. It depends how you're filming, Tripod, just standing still, or on the board. This was use just standing still - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQZ_pALdYUY
    - its shaky in the beginning because i was standing on the hand rail, and i slipped, but then i regained balance and it was pretty smooth.

    Cisco dropped the Flip product line last Spring. The product is essentially on its last breath. But, it is cheap, convenient, and works as well as most older digital cameras and phone recorders.

    This guy pretty much sums up my views of the Flip.



    I have a little Canon Powershot w/HD video that works a ton better, not to mention you can take decent stills with it too. Overall a much better buy.

    im not a big fan on the flip camera. its useful because it fits in your pocket and is super cheap. i mean if you put it on a tripod. it seems worth it. but for lines. its a no no

    I have one and it does the job. Especially if you mod it to hold lens'. Works well if your starting out like me.

    I have that one and it does beautifully. The best thing about it is the external mic jack, which allows you to use a better microphone, which Flip cameras do not have. As well as an SD card slot, which allows countless hours of recording.

    At that price point and for the convenience you're looking for, just get a GoPro.

    I thought it was good man. Good quality....a little shaky....but that's not the camera.lol.

    It looked good man. For the fact that your using a Flip of coarse.

    Of coarse a better more expensive camera is .....well..better.lol...but for what the device is that shot looked pretty good.

    The slow mo was really clear.

    the flip cams are pretty good, but its hard to make it look great because of how light it is making it easy to have unstable shots. The quality though is good, and you can get good long angle shots with a steady hand.

    it can get the job done its cheap and is a fair enough quality for price. downfall is that it can be shaky better used standing still or on a tripod or something. and i don't think fish eye is available

    you can modify a fish eye on it, just it needs super glue.
