The Zi8 features a 2.5-inch LCD screen, which makes framing and viewing your movies and images incredibly easy.
Under the LCD screen are most of the camera's controls. The buttons are well marked and easy to see, two on each side of the joystick button. The joystick allows you to search through menus and operate the digital zoom. Pressing it starts and stops your movies as well as capturing your images when shooting stills. The other controls not shown are the Normal/Macro switch on top and the power button on the right side of the camera,
In the middle of the right side is the SDHC slot that allows for SDHC cards up to 32GB to support the 128MB of internal memory. The card shown is a SanDisk Ultra II, 15MB/s, 4GB SDHC memory card.
The bottom of the right side opens up to reveal the built-in USB 2.0 arm. This allows you to plug the camera into any computer at any time, no chance of forgetting a cable.
