The Wide Angle Lens is no longer available from Theflip.com
I have two of these - a minoHD 4GB and an UltraHD 8GB. Actually bought the Ultra because I loved my husband's Mino so much. They're great for capturing video when you want to be unobtrusive. (Maybe this is why they use the Flip cameras to film shows like "Teen Mom?" Seriously - some of the shots in the cars you can see additional Flip cameras hanging on the windows!)
They work great, are fairly tough (ours have been everywhere), and so easy to use I have no problem letting my mom touch mine. (In fact, one of the ones I just bought is for her Christmas gift!)
You don't need to use the software to get the files off - just use Windows Explorer or Finder. Seriously - just go into the files and copy them. (Although note: You'll want to delete files using the Flip software or from the Flip camera itself or else the camera doesn't realize they've been deleted!)
I keep one of the cameras on our coffee table just to capture things the baby is doing - there's no running around trying to dig out a bigger camera, turn it on, etc.
For $40, you can't go wrong!
