Hacking your Flip camera

At todays Boston Media Makers meeting, there was an impromptu demo of how to improve - or at least alter - the optics of a Flip camera.

Using Superglue, the adapter ring for a lens from a Digital Concepts lens set was glued in front of the lens of a Flip camera. Once this is fixed, you can screw on either a telephoto or wide angle lens, (if you get a set like this): Digital Concepts-52MM Telephoto/Wide Angle Lens Set (Black) or perhaps this: Digital Concepts 37mm Tele & Wide Camcorder Lens Kit

You can see a Qik video of the process here: McGyvering your Flip camera
