The UltraHD utilizes a fixed 1.5mm, f/2.4 lens that allows the camera to perform well in most lighting conditions, including low-light situations. The lens sits behind a glass cover for protection. There is no optical zoom, but there is the option of the smooth 2x digital zoom feature.

On the back you will find a 2.0-inch LCD screen, which is used to record and playback you HD videos as well as navigate the Setup menu. There is a shiny, reflective coating over the majority of the back of the camera, which could cause some issues in bright lighting.

The controls on the back are very limited, which adds to the simplicity of the UltraHD. You have the large red REC button in the center which start and stops recording. Mounted around it is the 4-way controller. Pressing up and down controls the digital zoom, while left and right scroll through the previously recorded videos. Lastly we have the Play and Delete buttons on the outside.
















flip_ultra_usb.jpgConnecting the UltraHD to any computer is a snap. The built-in USB arm swings out with a flip of the switch. Your movies can then be viewed, copied or uploaded with Flip's pre-loaded software, so you always have it with you.






flip_ultra_bottom.jpgOn the bottom you will find the FlipPort. The UltraHD 8GB is the only model in the Flip Video line to offer this functionality. The FlipPort consists of the typical HDMI port for connecting your Flip Video camera to your HDTV set with an optional mini HDMI cable as well as an accessory port for proprietary Flip accessories. To the left is the camera's tripod mount, and on the right you can see the Lock switch, which prevents recorded movies from being deleted; a handy feature if you have small children that love to mass the delete button.



flip_ultra_battery.jpgThe Ultra HD is powered by either the included 3.7V, 1300mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery pack or three AAA type batteries. This pack offers a bit less battery life compared to the 2100mAh pack found on its predecessor, however Flip claims it can power the UltraHD for up to 1.5 hours of continuous video capture. The battery pack is charged in the camera using a powered USB port on your PC/Mac (or any other device offering a standard USB port). The battery pack has a nice tab on it for easy removal.
