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.
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.
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: Being my Olympus digital camera had been stepped on, the screen cracked and we needed another camera quick. We had booked a trip to Orlando, FL last August, 2010 and my husband surprised us with this camera. It not only takes great pictures, but does video's too! The great thing about it is the price, very inexpensive at about $130.00. Didn't come with a case, but we bought one. Its black and sleek, looks like a cell phone, with no annoying lens sticking out.
Excerpt: I love this simple little camera. I got it for my wife for Christmas, because she wanted a simple little video camera to take videos of our grandkids, and she uses it all the time. It's a great way to capture the memories of our grandkids growing up. It's small enough that she can carry it around in her purse without being weighed down too much, and it's simple enough that we can use it without much dificulty.
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.
