Kodak zi8 Beats the Flip Camera

Kodak Zi8 Pocket Camera

The new Kodak Zi8 Pocket Video Camera can capture up to 1080p HD resolution. It has an SD card slot and a removable, rechargeable battery. You get composite and HDMI cables, but you don’t need the cables, just swing out the USB arm. It even has stabilization which is very helpful in these pocket cameras. The picture looks very good in low light and it takes 5 megapixel stills.

The bundled software is not Mac compatible. The MSRP price of $179 does not include a optional memory card which holds 32 GB for 10 hours of videos. For more information see

    Mac users – don’t worry. You don’t need any bundled software. The Kodak Zi8 is basically “plug and play” when it comes to Mac. You need all the complicated software for a PC. Just print out and read the manual – it’s really easy. Enjoy!

    I’m totally leery about the compatibility issues with using iMovie or Final Cut Express. The FLIP has been a real challenge to integrate into an editing work flow in Final Cut Express. I’ve had to rely on YouTube videos by people who hack it together and “make” it work. What is up… why can’t the manufactures clearly say: If you are editing on Final Cut Express the best settings to use are… XYZ etc. Why are consumers left to their own devices on this stuff?
