Excerpt: This senior citizen is pretty "digital" savvy but beware that this camera does not have ANY word on the controls. The first time I took it on vacation we ended up buying disposable cameras. No manual comes with it and I was unable to pull it up online. Then when I got home I asked my young nephew to fool around with it. He immediately put in the digital card that comes with it and I was able to take more than 200 pictures on my next vacation. Now I am happy with it...
Excerpt: I bought this for my husband as a gift. What a huge joke. He hates it. Me being the women that I am don't pay attention to electronic thingys. I didn't know that it had low resolution. So, with that being said i needed to return it. Well guess what being that I purchased it so early in the year and it is after christmas they won't take it back.
Excerpt: This camera is great. I just pulled it out of the box and not only was it affordable but it is everything Kodak said it would be. I took one picture and one video just to test it before I decided. I read all the reviews about the camera and had pushed the complete order button and then got worried. I told myself and my husband we would try it out and send it right back if the negative reviews we read were true. I turned it on plugged it into my computer and up came...
Excerpt: So I have a bit of a bias, because I used to have the awesome Kodak Playsport, which I thought was pretty much flawless. I was absolutely loving the Playsport, until I recently lost it while moving to a new place (I suspect the movers taking it, but I have no proof). In any case, I had to find a replacement handheld video camera, and it was not easy convincing my boss (wife) that I should spend another ~$130 to get the Playsport, which in her mind, I lost.
Great deal if you get the current low price on YELLOW!

Summary: For the 40 dollar current sale price being asked, it would be hard to beat the Kodak Zx1. First, that's darn cheap for any kind of decent video camera. Second, this thing appears to be well made and has a very nice case, simple controls, is very easy to use (Look, Ma, no menus!), and has a very nice feel in the hand due to the textured, case material (so you won't always be dropping it).
