According to the description:
"Capture photos using the easy Snapshot feature: You can grab a still-image photo from any of the 60 frames that comprise each second of your video"
What Cisco doesn't tell you is that this "easy Snapshot feature" is not built into the Flip. It's part of the software installed on your computer. IN other words, you need to bring the video back to you computer and scan through a video looking for footage. Please see my previous post.
I think what some of you are forgetting is the cost. It's only $44.99 without tax in most states. To get the features you would like, how much do those mini camcorders cost? A hell of alot more.
I have no problem playing with their software after if I notice something I want a still of. This is small camcorder, not a still camera. Most of us have DSLR's or point and shooters, depending on our capabilities.

For $40, so long as it does video better than my point and shoot and my webcam I will be happy.
Flip video: 720 @ 60 fps
my point and shoot: VGA rez @ supposedly 30 fps, but looks more like 10 fps where the video seizes up and dies every few frames
the only thing cheaper than time is money
