Picture this: You’re having the time of your life scuba diving with your buddies off the coast of California. After a while, you decide to swim off a ways from the group to do a little exploring on your own (not the smartest move — haven’t you ever heard of the buddy system?). All of a sudden, you find yourself face to face with a great white shark. You stare at each other for a long moment as he circles you and then swims on by. Unbelievable, right? And you know your buddies will never believe your story when you get back and tell them. Of course, if you’d had your handy-dandy Flip video camera with you, you could have recorded the whole encounter. Unfortunately, though, it’s not waterproof. But, wait, what’s that? It can be? Yep, because an underwater case is now available specifically for the second-generation Flip Ultra ($150) and UltraHD ($200). Never let another shark encounter go unrecorded again. $50, www.theflip.com
