Kodak Zi8 Review


Review posted 10/7/2009

Kodak's Zi8 is a pocket High-Definition video camera for the consumer on a budget. It offers record resolutions of 1080p, 720p @ 30 or 60 fps, or WVGA (848x480), a built-in mono microphone with input for a stereo mic, and A/V and HDMI outputs. A great addition to the Kodak models are their ability to capture still images as well. While other pocket video cameras only include software that allows you to export a still from your videos (max resolution same as video), the Zi8 features a 5-Megapixel still image shooting mode.
