Okay.. I know this isn’t a ‘camcorder’ per se, but you can take some video with it. I’m just super stoked on this offer.I just bought this camera after doing some extensive research on my own over the last two weeks. This is the Canon EOS Rebel XSi DSLR. I’ve been searching for one for a while, and after some debating between the XS vs. XSi, I decided to go with the higher MP camera (also with additional features).

The reason I’m writing about this deal is that Amazon has an AWESOME deal on this camera right now.  It normally lists at $699, but is on sale for $598, but if you buy the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS telephoto zoom lens at the time of purchase (normally lists for $399), you get instant savings of $200. So to make a long story short, I bought the camera and lense which would normally cost around $1000 for only $638!!!! I’ve looked for this camera and found it locally in the $600 – $700 range locally. The camera also comes with a EF-S 18-55mm, f3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens. So that’s 2 lenses (telephoto, and standard zoom lens as well as the camera body) for only $638. This offer is valid through November 21, 2009. And it comes with FREE super saver shipping!

Well, to continue my interest in great POV (Point of View) camcorders, I came across the Twenty20 VholdR Countour HD Camera (thanks @cyclingslopes). This camera, and it seems there are so many great POV cameras on the market now, is fantastic! If you decide to get this camera, I would also look at some of the accessories (windshield mount is something that caught my eye) that come with it!

I found a great video review that shows the features and the capabilities of this POV camcorder. You’ll need to scroll down to see it. If anyone has the camera, please comment and let me know what you think!

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.

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 was glad to see the Sanyo Xacti VPC-E2 digital camcorder. I personally like mini-camcorders, and this was one that I haven’t had a chance to write about yet. It does not shoot HD video, but records at full 640×480 resultion at 60 files per second. The one great feature that stands out to me, is that it’s waterproof! So in a way, it’s similar to a POV camcorder where you can take it anywhere, but it’s not a true POV since you can mount it (well.. you probably could if you wanted to). This camcorder is also a 8MP digital camera as well, which is conveninent.

Currently at Amazon, they’re offering this camera for $169.99 (down from $199.99) which saves you 15% on this purchase. This is limited to the blue camera only.

So after a few Twitter discussions, I thought I would talk about a couple POV (Point of View) camcorders. These cameras are extremely fun to use. They’re not super versatile, but POV cameras are great for capturing video of activities you normally can’t capture. Like a mountain bike ride, motorcycle road trip, etc. I found a cool video review where it shows someone surfing.

These cameras come in a water proof enclosure and use a SD card to store video data. Also, the price of these are very affordable and worth it for a fun video project.

Upgrade your existing Helmet HERO or Motorsports HERO standard to a WIDE HERO by buying this Wide HERO Expansion. This is only the water housing and the new 5mp 170 degree wide angle camera. No other accessories included.

This week, I’ll be discussing a few more POV cameras. I think these are definitely worth talking about. If you have one, let me know your experiences.

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.
