There are times when you need a quick and cheap video to be taken. Edit, add music and personalize your flick and then easily share with your family and friends. There's no such thing as "you should've been there" with these tiny recorders. Catch life as it happens.

The Flip Ultra features Flip Video's signature shoot-and-share simplicity: just power on and press record to start capturing high-quality video in seconds.  We love that you have up to 120 minutes of record time, you'll never miss another minute again. And because it's super-portable, Ultra lets you capture spontaneous video as you go on with your daily life. Ultra produces video that rivals that of far more expensive camcorders. Its 4 GB of built-in memory lets you capture 120 minutes of video, even in low-light situations. Premier AAC audio compression means your videos will sound crisper than ever, too. The included connector cable makes it incredibly easy to watch your videos on your TV. $99
