This does a good job without vignetting. You get a much wider field of view with a Flip, and the lenses are pretty good quality.

The lens comes with peel-and-stick metal rings that you attach to the camera. The lens then sticks magnetically to the metal ring. It doesn't stick all that firmly -- you could shake the lens off if you're shooting video while running or something. But for most uses it sticks well enough.

I was concerned the mount would not work on a 3rd generation Flip Ultra HD because the ring around the lens on the Flip is tapered, and the metal mounting rings that come with the lens are flat and won't bend to shape. (It comes with two mounting rings, not three as shown in the picture.) I followed the instructions and allowed the ring to sit for fifteen minutes after applying it so the adhesive could set, and the adhesive turned out to be aggressive enough to hold the ring to the Flip. If it loosens later I may reinforce it with some CA glue.

You actually get two lenses that screw together. When you unscrew and remove the wide angle outer lens, the inner one functions as a fixed-length macro that focuses well at around 2 to 4 inches from the subject.

It also comes with a pouch (not a lanyard) and a couple of lens caps that fit rather loosely.

For the price, it's a good buy and really adds some versatility to a Flip Ultra HD. A better fitting mounting ring would be nice, but that might require machining and that might run the price up. It still works well, it's priced reasonably, and I think that makes it a good deal.

This is a good quality accessory lens. It works by sticking a stainless ring around the camera's fixed lens, and the wide-angle lens then magnetically attaches over it. The magnets work fine, but wouldn't be any good for use during activities where the camera will be jostled. I planned to use it with my headrest camera mount in the car, but I'm worried it may not stay, we'll see. Also, mine did not come with the pictured lanyard, but a stiff vinyl pouch. The lanyard would be advisable. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, mine also came with only two rings. The rings do not bend to lay flat on the Flip cam; but chances are, if you're not using a tight case, you won't notice. If there were a lens with another mounting option, I would suggest trying it, but as of this review, they all appear to use a similar ring & magnet system.

The Fisheye effect is pretty minimal, and so the video quality is pretty good. Even if the lens is slightly off-center, the picture will be fine. If you need to film in tighter spaces, this is what you're looking for. Mine also came with a [useful] set of inner and outer lens covers, for when it is stored.

The lens is a must have if you need a wider angle for your videos, I was worried about some of the people saying it wouldn't work on my 3rd Gen hd Flip 8gb. But it does and it works great. If you need a good quality lens at an affordable rate, here it is! Oh yeah, and the metal rings that you use to stick onto your devices, the pictures shows 3 but there is only 2. Just FYI. :)

product is easy to install, i just wish that the magnetic ring would fit better over the camera lenses just for a better look, but it still works just fine. After all those lenses use to be around $40, so it is a great deal to get them for $16 bucks.

Shipped quickly and lens is easy to attach. Has the perfect angle for shooting volleyball but the image is fuzzy around the edge.
