Excerpt: We were looking for an easy to use camera capable of Video and Stills. For the price, we were pleasently surprised. Stills look really good and I am learning how to do Video. It won't make you a professional but it will record you vacation memories. The hd camcorder is great I like the size not bulky or awkward feeling, it takes great pictures, also the hd recordings are well above what I expected. Ok...
Excerpt: I have to start this review with I LOVE THIS CAMERA! I was looking for a small handheld videocamera. My video camera was 11 years old, so you can imagine. Electronics change every day and new products come out just as fast. Over a holiday weekend my uncle had this Kodak Zi8 video camera and it caught my eye. He is pretty technology savvy so I had to be sure to do my research. This camera could not be more simple to use! You simply turn it on and hit the record button!
Check out the Zi8 for an awesome pocket camcorder!

Excerpt: My husband purchased this camcorder for me as an early Christmas gift after he saw me coveting my sister-in-law's Flip camcorder. He actually bought me a Flip, but after coming home and reading some techie reviews, we decided to take it back and exchange it for this one. We have 2 small children and have a traditional mini DVD camcorder that is a bit cumbersome to drag out and use, so we thought this would be great to be able to carry around and use. It's slightly...
Dynamite quality, features, and ease of use! A must have!

Excerpt: The Kodak Zi8 is the best bang for your buck in the hand held HD video camcorder market. The Zi8 (which comes in three colors: black, aqua, and raspberry), offers up to 1080p HD video and 5 megapixel still camera function. The Zi8 is extremely easy to use with a total of only five buttons that allow you to easily and quickly navigate the video camera's easy to understand menus and options. The Zi8 boasts a rechargable lithium battery (charger included), a...
Excerpt: Let's understand right off the bat that this IS a Pocket Video Camera. Having said that I will go on to say that it performs well beyond what one would expect. Unlike its competitors the built in USB connector is made of a flexible material so that it will not snap or break if your computer's USB port is not flush with the surface. Editing software by ArcSoft is easy to use and built into the camera which means no CD/DVD to lose.
Excerpt: I really wanted a video camera, but not one of those big bulky ones so I headed over to amazon, and this one was on sale for $140. I thought it was a good price so I looked into it a little more only to find that it shot in full 1080p, took 5.0 megapixel photos, and also was a great size. I jumped on the deal and when it came to my house, It looked and felt a lot nicer than I had imagined.
Excerpt: When my hubby and I got our tax refund, we decided to invest in a video camera. We have a (then 7 months old) baby boy and we wanted to have the ability to record some of the exciting milestones in his life. We had considered getting the Flip camera, which many of our friends had gotten and really liked, but were also inclined to check out the other options to make sure we were getting the most for our money.
Excerpt: This is one of the best pocket hand cam you can possibly find in the market currently. I prefer this over Flip Ultra HD due to room for some customization as well as availability of recording videos at 1080. Video quality is excellent in HD mode. Macro mode is very easy to use. External mic input is very useful. I had to record an interview for a class project, and this camera did a great job.
Excerpt: This is the best purchase, and most expensive purchase, I have made in my short 17 years of life. I spent about 2 weeks researching camcorders, going into stores and trying them out. I compared this product to the more expensive Flip Video camcorders. I wanted a Flip one even though it was expensive because of the ability to customize skins. Nevertheless, I did not want to put out that much money for a camcorder that I would not use everyday.
Excerpt: I love my new zi8! I got it about a year ago because my camera's video was awful. This camera shoots great quality, I use it for you-tube and just to record cool things for my life movie. I got it on sale for like 80$$$$ So I thought it was a steel! I love the colors it comes in too. I got the blue color and it's beautiful. This video camers is wAy better than the flip video camera. But, the only thing wrong with it is that it does ...
