Final Verdict

The quality of the videos in these 2 flip cameras are about the same, but, the colors appear to be slightly more vibrant with the UltraHD.

zoom is extremely limited in both cameras.

Fantastic video capture in both the cameras.

Fantastic internal software (although it works much better with PCs than Macs).

Simple to use and very simple devices to learn.

The UltraHD is a fantastic camera for families going on vacation. While it is larger than the MinoHD it does offer 120 minutes of video storage. But, if your goal is to have a highly portable camera for spur of the moment videos you may want to choose the MinoHD since it is lighter and more portable.
