The software is trash and Kodak rightfully went out of business
8 February 2013
Summary: Kodak makes it nearly impossible to convert the recordings from this device, which record in .mov format. If I want to upload anything I record to facebook, Kodak won't let me do it unless I agree to give them access to my personal information on facebook. Screw Kodak, and screw this crappy camera.
No longer good value for the money... external mic jack is very noisy

Summary: Length:: 2:44 Mins I paid about $100 for a refurbished model. This is quite a good price for what you get (good performance including good internal mic) but at $150 I would look either to a cheaper Flipcam or else to a higher-end AVCHD camera (in the end I replaced it with a used Canon Vixia HF10 at...
Summary: The product is well made and the pictures are good in lighting. What I don't like about this item is that I can't seem to get a good video in dim places.You can't even adjust your setting to even make it look half decent.
Summary: I got Zi8 recently before my trip to Disney Land. With one extra battery and one 8Gb SD card, I was able to shoot video for whole day. Transfering video is easy. One thing I did not like and still having problem with is that it saves file in .MOV format.
Summary: I was looking for a great pocket camcorder and thought I found it with the Zi8. I also bought the Zi8 sleeve for $20 and an sdhc 16 gb card for $40. Amazon did a great job packaging and sending the items, but that's where the excitement ended.
Summary: I love the size of this camera and it is cute and very easy to use. The pictures aren't top quality but I knew at the price I paid they wouldn't be. It fits in the same camera case with my digital camera so it is easy to use which ever one I want for the occasion.
Summary: Received the first one but it had been opened and used. Lots of fingerprints. Every package in the box and the box itself had been retaped with scotch tape. Received the second one and all was great after the firmware upgrade except: The zoom makes the picture go dark half way into the zoom unless...
Summary: I recently purchased the zi8 and would like to write a review comparing this unit with three other units I own. The other units are the Kodak zx1. RCA 300ezHD and the Flip Ultra 120 min 2GB(not mino or HD. Before I begin let me explain what I use the cameras for.
On the verge of returning. Can't purchase the remote anywhere

Summary: The quality of outdoor video/photo is pretty good, indoor is (as to be expected) rather poor. My biggest critique is that the remote control functionality (something I intended to use a fair amount) is effectively useless because I am unable to purchase a remote control for the device.
