So I’ve been on a kick of reviewing mini camcorders. I’m still on the quest for the best mini camcorder that is ideal for video blogging. So far, I’ve talked about the Flip Video HD Mino, Flip Video HD Ultra and the Sony Webbie MHS-PM1, and now I’d like to talk about the Kodak Zi8 HD Pocket Video Camera.
For starters, and to me this is quite big, it has image stabilization. That is HUGE. Both the Flip Video cameras and the Sony Webbie do not have the stabilization. The other improvement is that it can function in low light environments. Additionally it shoots high definition video up to 1080p at 30 fps with 16:9 aspect ratio, it also boasts an expandable SD/SDHC card slot for up to 32 GB of additional memory; removable rechargeable batteries; a cordless, swing-out USB arm for uploading and a vibrant 2.5–inch viewfinder.
One issue to think about is that Kodak recommends 2.8gz processor to edit the 1080p HD files. This could be a limitation to some of the users out there. It is also recommended to upgrade to a larger memory card, since the card that comes with the camera can handle the onboard OS alone.
It’s also important to note that this camera will be available on September 15th!
