Kodak Zi6

5 September 2014
  • Summary: While bigger than most of its competitors and high priced for a mini camcorder, the Kodak Zi6's attractive design and decent video quality adequately compensate for some usability drawbacks.
  • Pros: Solid 720p video; comparatively large LCD; memory-card expansion slot; AA rechargeable batteries included along with protective carrying case and video output cables.
  • Cons: Insufficient onboard memory and price doesn't include an optional memory card; can't recharge batteries via USB connector; included software isn't Mac compatible.

Kodak Zi6 Pocket Video Camera 2.4-Inch Display: Go Back To The Drawing Board

Personal Electronics buzz
11 August 2009
  • Excerpt: I purchased the Kodak Zi6 Pocket Video Camera because of the Kodak name. I figured Kodak would be ahead of Flip and the other pocket video producers. What a disappointment. The Kodak Zi6 has a fantastic 720p capability, but no image stabilization. This means you need to use a tripod or stay fixed while shooting. I got blurred video shots and the brightness technology needs some work.

  • Conclusion: Kodak's first dedicated video camera carves out its niche in the YouTube camcorder space, offering HD capabilities. Whether that's a plus or a minus comes down to how much you value video quality in an inexpensive video camera.
  • Pros: HD video capture. Large, bright screen. Macro mode. Still-image capture. Solid speaker.
  • Cons: Large footprint. Heavy. Very little built-in memory.

Kodak Zi6 camcorder review

1 May 2009
  • Summary: The Kodak Zi6 is well-built and feels substantial. We liked its large, responsive buttons and controls. However, there’s no USB extension cable or removable SD/SDHC Card provided in the box and the mono microphone picks up operational noise.

  • Excerpt: If you haven’t seen this video camera in person, it’s about the size of a cell phone (almost exactly the same size as the Apple iPhone, but a little thicker: 2.5 inches x 4.5 inches x 0.9 inches), with a 2.4-inch LCD screen and controls on one side, and the lens and speaker/microphone on the other. It’s weighs in, with batteries, at 5.6 ounces. Basically, it’s an HD video camera that you can carry around easily in your pocket.

Product review - Kodak Zi6 pocket HD video camera

29 September 2008
  • Summary: Included in the box of the Zi6 is the camera itself, a Kodak branded charger with 2 AA batteries (pre-charged!), AV and HD cables, a manual and a CD containing a version of the Arcsoft video editing package. Now, on to the most important part of the camera; video quality. Let me open immediately by letting you know that the Zi6 will not be replacing a professional grade HD camcorder any time soon.
