Not a good one

  • 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.

Kodak ZX1 Overall a Cheap Design

Westside Steve "SEP", Amazon
5 August 2011
  • Summary: Not a very good design. When zooming in and out the button makes a clicking sound. Guess what happens when you're recording ... the mic picks up the clicking sound as you zoom in and out. In my book that's considered a cheap design with no afterthought. When viewing the video people are asking "what's that clicking sound in the background?". No wonder Kodak is having problems; they're putting out products that'e barely equal in quality to Coby, RCA and Radio Shack.

  • Summary: I have a medical condition commonly called "Tremors", which means my hands shake. I have digital still cameras that have a feature which corrects picture taking if you shake. This video camera doesn't have such a feature. My daughter used it and noticed that if you are filming and pan to another area, it takes awhile to focus. Not a good deal for my money anyway!

kodak Zx1

Overstock
2 January 2010
  • Summary: this is a big dissapointment for a Kodak product. The pictures/video look great in the camera with the 2.4" screen, but the playback on a computer is terrible and hard to even tell what your looking at. My computer is only about a year old and works great with my regular Kodak digital M341 camera with video.

High pitched whine on the audio, on 2 different units

C. Mayle, Amazon
2 September 2009
  • Summary: I'm really confused at the people that are reviewing this product so highly. I ordered this and received it this week. Upon trying it out briefly, I noticed that when you played back a movie on the camera, there was a high pitched whine over the audio. I copied the movie to my PC and viewed it and sure enough, it wasn't just the camera speaker, the high pitched whine was there.

You get what you pay for

Barbara J. Hoffmann, Amazon
1 August 2009
  • Summary: Each shot taken requires repeat pressing of red play button, which gives an ending "jump" to every video. This always needs to be edited out which is a pain - takes an addition step before one can use in movie. Disappointed in product.

Convenient and nice quality, however...

Amazon Customer "golf nut", Amazon
17 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this for the size and convenience of being able to take quick HD videos while on my recent Hawaii trip. The HD quality is fine but wow do you need a steady hand. Not real good for moving and filming, which is what I needed. I saw this problem in other reviews, but thought "how bad could it be?" It can be pretty bad. When I viewed my videos on the computer, the colors were reversed (sky is orange, blue is red, etc.)! I have to read other reviews to find out why.

Not all that it's racked up to be, I went with the HD FLIP

Bubba Tahu "Tahu", Amazon
24 June 2009
  • Summary: I liked the idea of this little camera much more than the Flip. I love the SD Card aspect of it but beyond that it wasn't all that great. The picture quality was pretty bad in anything less than perfect light. I saw little if any difference between the 60fps and the 30. The only reason I'd say get this over a HD Flip or perhaps another camera like these is if you need more than 2 hours of shoot time and want to be able to have 32 gigs of memory.

DO NOT buy this video camera

Brian L. Nipper "Brian", Amazon
1 June 2009
  • Summary: DO NOT buy the Zx1. Kodak advertises remote control as one of the selling features. They LIE! There is no such thing available either in the Lodak stores or at retailers. FALSE ADVERTISING and pretty crappy customer service when I asked about how to get the ADVERTISED remote. I no longer trust Kodak and will likely return this camera since the remote control was an important feature to me.
