Summary: I bought this video camera yesterday, bought a new SD card and can't get it to work. Playback feature does not work. Screen goes black and none of the buttons work. I'm so disappointed. Most of the reviews have been good for this camera, but I guess I got a defective product. Since I live overseas, I'm not going to waste anymore money returning it for repair. Guess I should have went with the Flip!
Summary: tried to use camera the 1st time for mother's day, turns out it was broken.seller refuses to refund my money.total waste of time & hard earned cash.i will not do business with this person again the color is less hot pink & more metallic purple, i'm sure it would be a great camera to have if it were in working order....
Summary: I purchased this item nov 28th and when they claim it was shipped the tracking number they sent me was invalid/no such package. I should have received it by the 8th and still have yet to have a valid tracking number or package. Don't use this seller unless you want to do a run around and have your money held hostage.
Summary: Boo. I had this guy for less than 24 hrs. Picture was sub par and can only record in .mov (I'm a PC girl). It slipped out of my hand and broke. It's now unusable and the fall was less than 3ft on to soft surface. DO NOT BUY. spend a little more on a nicer camcorder that records better and is more durable!
Breaks in your pocket & Kodak warranty won't fix it.

Summary: I bought this camera for my deployment to Iraq. It was in my cargo pants pocket one day I took it out and the lens was cracked and the silver trim ring had fallen off. I don't know how it broke but it did. Anyways when I got home I contacted Kodak to fix it. They said "Customer induced damage to the camera voids the warranty" they want $63 + $10.95 + tax to fix it OR I can send it to them and they will take 15% off a new camera if bought from the Kodak store.
Summary: Easy enough to start/stop recording. But a pain to attempt to download videos, and way too easy to accidently delete. There is no "are you sure?" prompt, in case you hit the wrong, unlabeled button. If you don't care about accidently deleting files, then this camera will work for you. I personally wish we would have shopped around more.
Summary: This product's Arcsoft connection worked great for about a week. Then the media player stopped working. I contacted Kodak got transferred to about 4 people who were of no help at all. Then got an e-mail from them saying to get in touch with Arcsoft. I've contacted them at least 4 times: no response. I only get e-mails to buy more of their products.
Summary: Just returned my second unit...during playback - either when played back on the unit or transferred- there is high pitched feedback that can't be eliminated. Very disappointing as every other attribute of this is outstanding. Going to have to look elsewhere.
Summary: When I first tried to record on the Kodak Zx1, it lasted 10 seconds, and then an icon appeared indicating "out of memory." When I went to the Kodak chat area and explained the problem, I was informed that the internal memory is only 128mb, providing a buffer only. I told her that the instructions never mentioned you needed a memory card for the camera to work. She said that she would notify advertising to add a notation to that effect. I'm sure you get the point.

Summary: this is a cool camera and seems to work well - for the price. Until you run out of battery and have to recharge. There is NO way to recharge the batteries without removing them from the unit itself. Who make a digital device these days--and does not allow for easy recharging. I tried using the ACDC adapter as well as USB - and then confirmed directly with Kodak. There is no way to recharge the device without removing the batteries. What a pain!
