Today on Twitter, @kidambition asked about the Kodak Zi6 HD Pocket Video Camera and how it compared to the Flip Video Mino. I’ve done a few reviews of the Kodak Zi8 and the Kodak Zx1 in the recent past, so I thought I’d take a moment and talk about the Kodak Zi6.

This camcorder is extremely similar to the Flip Video Mino HD camera on a few points. They both shoot 720p HD video and both lack image stabilization.

The Flip series has built in USB adapter (so there are no cables). The Kodak Zi6 uses interface cable. The Kodak Zi6 also has removable rechargeable batteries, which is nice.. and the Flip Mino has to be charged via USB. The other advantage of the Zi6 is the ability to change the video quality (HD at 60 fps, HD at 30 fps, or VGA) and the super great advantage of having SD memory allowing you to store 32GB.

This is a good camcorder, but if you’re looking for image stabilization and true 1080p HD, I would look at the Kodak Zi8 as another option.  Either way, this is very comparable to the Flip Video Mino HD.

I’ve been super interested in POV or Point of View cameras for a while. Living a active lifestyle and doing some fun activities when I’m recreating, the idea of capturing footage from my point of view seems really cool. There are definitely a few camcorders out there that do this, and they range in quality, resolution and features. With a POV camera you can mount them on your car, bike, helmet, surfboard, etc for a really unique video experience, and could be a great addition to your video efforts.

Today, I want to talk about the V.I.O POV.1 Point of View Video System, which is up on the higher end of things. It records 720×480 resolution at 30fps. It is a little different than many because it has a unit that acts as the DVR (Digital Video Recorder) that is separate than the actual camera unit. Some are all in one. Since this is separate, you gain the benefit of viewing the footage on the DVR itself, which is a great benefit.

If anyone has personal experience with this system, please comment here. I know others as well as myself would like to hear some thoughts the V.I.O POV system.

I found a killer video that shows what this recording system is capable of.  Please scroll down to see it!

The Kodak Zx1 HD Pocket camcorder is another “shoot and share” type mini-camcorder which are extremely popular. Similar to the Flip Video series, these cameras shoot in HD, but at 720p vs 1080p, and are extremely easy-to-use, basically point and shoot. This camera also has USB interface allowing for easy transfer of video footage to a computer/laptop. This particular camera has rubberized doors to protect all ports and is resistant to rain, snow, sand and dirt which is a nice feature.

Currently (September 25th, 2009) this camera is normally listed at $149.00, but is on sale for a great price of $119.82!!

I just found out that the Panasonic HDC-TM20-K SD & HDD Camcorder that is currently on sale at $529.99 can have an additional $200 knocked off the price by entering the code TM20DEAL at checkout. That’s going to bring this camera down to a amazing $329.99!!! People, this is a great deal. The camera also has free shipping as well.

This camcorder can shoot in full 1080p HD, and uses 16DB SD built in HDD memory.

The other day @kidwithoutmusic asked me what I would recommend for a HD camcorder int eh $100 to $300 price range. I recommended that Flip Series or the new Kodak Zi8 HD are worth looking, but @kidwithoutmusic also threw in the Creative Labs Vado HD. I remember reading and posting about Creative Labs Vado HD 8GB Pocket Video Camcorder about a month ago, so I thought I’d take a closer look at this camcorder.

First glance, it’s very similar to the Flip Mino with simple controls and display on one side, and the lense on the other. It shoots in 720p like the flip (2 hours of HD footoage), but also offers VGA resolution.. which can give you 8 hours of footate. Interesting that you can shoot in standard definition. It also has USB built into the unit, but also has a removable and rechargeable lithium battery. So the real two large differences I’m seeing over the Flip Mino is the ability to record in Standard Def and the ability to have a removeable / rechargeable battery. Both cameras have 2x digital zoom as well. The Flip Mino is a little cheaper, but I would expect some sales and offers on this camera in the future.

A couple of days ago I posted a review of the Panasonic HDC-HS250-K HHD HD Camcorder, and today I found another great camcorder, with fantastic features, and is currently selling at a great value. This camcorder is the VIXIA HF200 HD Flash Memory camcorder with 15x optical zoom by Canon.

  • Features include removable SDHC memory card
  • 15x HD Video Lens
  • 1920×1080 Full HD recording
  • Dual Shot for capturing video and photos
  • HDMI terminal for connecting to HDTVs

This camcorder normally lists at $850, but you can pick it up at Amazon for only $599.00 That’s a 30% savings (-$250.99). Also this camcorder ships FREE with Super Saver Shipping or FREE Two-Day Shipping (with trial of Amazon Prime). On top of this, if you buy the camcorder you get a Free Polaroid PoGo Printer. So, $251 dollars off, free shipping and free printer.. not a bad deal at all!

I had a few conversations with a Tweep (@SeerMax) about good camcorders, and she was interested in picking up the Panasonic HDC-HS250-K HHD HD Camcorder (with 120 GB drive). I wasn’t familiar with this camcorder, so I thought I’d take a look at this camera. Holy cow.. is this a nice unit!

This is going in a different direction than the mini-camcorder or shoot-and-share camcorders I’ve been talking about lately. SeerMax and I initially talked about the quality and durability of the more consumer/convenience based camcorders and it was agreed that the durability is often questioned. When we start to go to higher-end equipment and up to professional grade equipment, we definitely see improvements in the craftsmanship and inclusion of upper-end components that make these units last longer and perform better. Obviously, I need to put a gigantic asterisk next to this, since it always depends on the camera, the brand and model you get as well as what you’re exposing the gear to.

This camera looks absolutely fantastic and having a 120 GB drive is nice. It shoots in true 1080p HD and can shoot 11MP still photos. I saw one mention where it was advertised that it can do time-lapse, and apparently, this is not true. If anyone else can comment on this, that would be great.

Currently this camera lists at $899.95, but at the time of this post, you can purchase this camera for $762.26 after savings and you can also get a FREE Polaroid ProGo Printer!
