Lots of options

  • Summary: I love that you can plug in an external mic. I also love that you can utilize SD cards so you basically can shoot as much as you want. The only drawback is that the internal battery doesn't work great! Seems to loose charge quickly :-( Shoots great footage though.

Good camera; bad battery

  • Summary: The camera itself is above average, though probably good for the price. My issue is with the life of the rechargeable battery. It doesn't last very long on a charge and be prepared to buy a back-up as the first battery will simply quit taking a charge within the first year.

It's okay

  • Summary: It's an older camera that they don't manufacture anymore and the software for the Kodak is also old with very slow processing time. However the video quality is good and it captures sound well.

The software is trash and Kodak rightfully went out of business

Adrenaline, Amazon

  • 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

Marc Beneteau, Amazon
1 January 2012
  • 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...

Worth the price!

  • 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.

Kodak Zi8 video camera

L. VanZandt, Amazon

  • 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.
