FLIP is a series of pocket camcorders that was made by Cisco until 2011. In the elevator community these cameras are common by North American elevator filmers.
The FLIP series has 3 models; UltraHD, MinoHD and SlideHD. These cameras records at 720p or lower.
Some elevator filmers dislike these cameras because the cameras are sometimes not very stable (sometimes pointing down to the floor) which can ruin an elevator video, and can't take pictures. These cameras were also criticized for having bad microphone, lack of memory card extension slot, no optical zoom, and can't record at 1080p, and therefore, classify iy as a poor quality camera.
