★★★ FLIP video cameras kicked off the pocket camcorder trend and this best-selling model is better than before. The third UltraHD release has smooth edges for easy carriage, a grip-friendly exterior and a slimmer profile. And it comes with image stabilisation to keep your video viewers from reliving their Blair Witch Project experience. This camera’s 1.6-megapixel CMOS sensor will also capture 720p high-definition video at a greater frame rate (50 frames a second).
