    Love this video camera!!

    Posted .

    I started looking into purchasing a small video camera when I heard about the Flip Video. I did my research, and I am so glad I did - this camera is so much better! It has the flip out USB (which fits perfectly into my computer) which makes file transferring SO simple. Really - all you have to do is plug it in. The camera has a zoom function as well, which is great, and it also takes still photos. I love it that during the daytime, all I need is this one device to keep all my memories. I really like it that the memory is in the form of a memory card rather than being stored internally. I recently used this on a trip to California, and I know I would have used it a lot less if I had needed to dump all my files every day. For this, I could simply buy a bigger memory card (I have an 8 gig now) or just switch them out - so easy! The recording is simple to figure out, there are not a ton of buttons to deal with. You can shoot in several different resolutions, and the manual tells you which one is good for what. Overall, I have no complaints about this product. I highly recommend it!

    1080p - If you can handle it!

    Posted .

    My old digital cassette camcorder died, and having 2 HDTVs, I decided to upgrade to 1080p. Cost was nice, but I really got this due to its small size. It doesn't matter how pretty HD images are if the camera is too big to carry around all the time! Extensive online research showed this to be the hands down best "pocket-sized" video camera. I whole-heartedly agree. Video quality is amazing and 1080p looks great on my 100" projection HD system. Very easy to use. I even think the audio is substantially better than many reviews indicate. Perhaps Kodak improved this with newer firmware. I also love that Kodak actually includes all necessary cables including HDMI!!! You do have to buy an SDHC card, so that essentially adds to the cost of the base camera. My only beef is not the cameras fault. The 1080p video is WAY to much for either of my computers to edit. I use Adobe Premier Elements, and it is so slow, that editing is impossible. Even the 720p is a little rough. Granted, the intrinsic software on the Kodak allows you to view the images and do some processing, but not DVD or Blu-ray quality editing. I'm still trying to figure out a way to edit all the video I take. May have to just update the old computer to get a new video editing capable system.

    a very good value.

    Posted .

    i gave 5 stars and all excellents because for what you get, it works very well. it's not the best of anything as far as the technical specs go but if you want an easy to operate small video camera, buy this one. of course there will be a tech nerd complaining about some feature or button not meeting expectations, don't listen to them. this camera is great for quick videos of your kids and it fits in almost any pant or shirt pocket.

    Two weeks in and still in love with it.

    Posted .

    I chose this model based on a popular tech site's online reviews. I noted the selling price ($179) and sat back to wait for the sales. When the price hit $149 I pounced. I had to order online to get the color I wanted and was not disappointed, the Aqua is stunning. Selling points for me: 1. Maximun supported memory card is 32 GB SDHC which allows me to travel with the camera and not have to upload video to free up space. Just buy a supply of cards. 2. Video Image Stabilization makes for very smooth video. 3. Rechargeable Li-ion battery (Fully charges in 4 hours) The simplicity of this camera makes it so easy to film on the fly that I have used this camera almost daily. I have said goodbye to the expensive camcorder that is never conveniently located when sometihng interesting or exciting is happening. The zi8 stays in my purse ready to go at a moments notice. I did purchase (separately) an extra battery for travel and a remote control to allow me to get in on some of the videos.

    this is the best pocket cam made thus far.

    Posted .

    this is such a great camera it had all the bells and whistles you could need. with the newest update the zoom shudder issue is gone and the unit is simply Great. you do have to supply your own memory stick but this gives you versatility you do not get with th flip. i am running 32 gig and it is GREAT. they should offer it with the 16 gig installed for 200 and 250 for the 32 gig installed. i think users would jump all over this deal! if you are in the market for one of these types of units this is the one to buy! and even though it listed in best buys as not in stock they got it to me quickly! everyone i see is on me about this product 10 people are going to buy this after me telling them about it. it sells itself.

    Great pocket cam

    Posted .

    Takes SDHC up to 32gb, so plenty of room for pics/vids (if you can afford a 32gb card, that is). Clarity is great, easy transfer to computer, many quality settings for video from VGA to 1080. 5mp cam is good too. mic could be better as most people say. Thinking about getting an external mic as an add-on.

    easy to use and good value

    Posted .

    I haven't used a camcorder in many years and this one is very easy to use. I like the fact that you can take movies or still shots and quality of both is pretty darn good.

    love it, but...

    Posted .

    It is amazing the clarity of images produced from such a tiny camera. If the freezing continues now that we are more comfortable using, will need to return for replacement. Otherwise, love it. Great size.

    Great Product

    Posted .

    Excellent value for an HD camera. Stabilization feature a real plus that you do not find on similar priced camera. Has a nice feel and fits nicely in your shirt or coat pocket. Would recommend at least a 4-8GB SD card mininmum, but even that gives your plenty of memory. A real plus that it accommodates up to 32GB card.Comes with great accessories such as the HDMI cable. I highly recommend the Zi8...excellent value.

    Review Zi8

    Posted .

    Bought the product for the wife to replace a lost still photo camera. Thought I would step up to a video, this was a GREAT move. The Zi8 is a very easy to use out of the box camera. Could not have made a better choice. Wife and I love the picture quality and ease of use.

    I'm VERY satisfied!

    Posted .

    I am extremely happy with the Kodak Zi8, which I am using to post videos on my website. The camera is very easy to use and the video quality is very high. The only thing I did NOT like was the price. I could have got it for MUCH LESS money if I had shopped around a little more.

    Zi8 - good video, easy to use, no zoom

    Posted .

    Got the Zi8 to use for easy business videos. So far it has been great. The camera is very easy to use - the buttons are easy to find, logically laid out. The results look very good, especially for the price. The digital zoom is ueseless. If used while recording video it jumps forward in steps, not smoothly, and the resulting zoomed video doesn't look good. Best advice - don't use it.

    Great Videos & STILLS-Better than the FLIP

    Posted .

    This is a great camera comparable to the FLIP Video, but much better. This takes still photos with the press of a button. So, unlike the FLIP, you don't have to create stills from your video pictures. Very convenient.

    Great video recorder

    Posted .

    Records great video in daylight. Not as well in darker areas. Taking pictures quality is lacking but love the video recorder. Easy to connect to my PC and download videos. All the controls easy to learn.

    Great Camera!

    Posted .

    I really like the camcorder so far. The picture is great if you don't use the zoom--the video gets grainy when I zoom in. Of course, I have only used the camcorder a few times maybe I am doing something wrong. I use Cyberlink PowerDirector software to make movies and upload to youtube. The videos look good on youtube.
