Hack A Flip HD For Better Video

Cisco might have discontinued the Flip series of camcorders, but if you have one sitting around and want to use it for for than just quick video takes, Instructables user FlipVans1966 has a guide to getting more out of the camera.

Using nothing more than a bunch of tape, a few well-placed spacers and a few different types of cheap lenses, he outlines how to add macro, a telephoto and kaleidoscope lenses to the Flip. The results won't make the Flip win any design awards, but if you're looking to extend the functionality of the otherwise barebones but cheap camcorder, these will do the trick. Check out the Instructable for a full guide.
