Today I received my new Underwater Case for my Flip UltraHD camcorder. This is the new version for Gen2 Flips. After some research I’m pretty sure a lot of people mistook the first version as being compatible with UltraHDs and as a result a lot of cameras were broken.

This one seems fine however! Although it’s currently only available in the USA, apparently Pure Digital faced problems with EU regulations, or so I was told in my email to them. Update: Looks like it is actually available in the UK now!

I managed to source mine with thanks to (and a big thanks to everyone else who offered to help out), who purchased and shipped the item on my behalf.

If you have a Flip UltraHD, and want an underwater case, make sure you buy this one:

PS: Did I really fool anyone with my little trick?
