Originally pencilled in for July, the second gen Flip Ultra and the brand spanking Filp UltraHD will actually be available from today, and brag a number of key improvements.

First off, both models double the memory of the original Flip Ultra and now offer two hours of footage without an SD card, while the screen has also taken a boost up to two inches.

As you may be able to guess from the name, the Flip UltraHD goes one step further and records high-def movies in 720p.

The Flip Ultra series keeps the one-touch recording simplicity of the Flip brand, as well as the signature flip-out USB arm to connect directly up to your computer.

You'll be able to pick up the Ultra in black, white, pink and yellow for £129.99, while the UltraHD will be available in black and white for £159.99.
