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.
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.
High pitched whine on the audio, on 2 different units

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

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.
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.

Summary: This video camera does take really good quality videos for something so small and portable, but the microphone hardly works at all. So you get great video footage but most of the time hardly any sound to go with it. So I guess if you are not bothered about sound quality it would work for you.
Summary: Some of this things i would have liked to have known when selecting the camera.... 1) Output format, This what i really wished i'd researched. The video output produced from this camera is Apple quicktime which i guess is great if your a Mac user but can be limiting on a windows machine for editing.
Summary: I've always found these reviews extremely useful when purchasing new gadgets so though I'd add a quick one concerning the kodak zx1. I've only had the camera 2 days and have filmed a couple of clips but I'v found that they all have a loud, high pitched, hissing noise on them?!
