2009 Holiday Gift Guide: Kodak Zi8

Kodak Zi8We love how inexpensive it’s gotten for people to attain the ability to record high definition video, and we think this category is set to explode this holiday season. Based on this, and you know how much we love video, we’ve got to recommend the Kodak Zi8 handheld camera. Why? Well, the Kodak Zi8 records full 1080p HD video at 30 fps, and can also take 5 megapixel still images. It incorporates image stabilization as well, which helps avoid that whole Blair Witch shaky cam effect that none of us enjoy, and in a rare move, it even has a microphone jack so you can connect a nice, high quality audio device, if you so choose.

It’s definitely a great value for such a small device that packs a nice punch. The Kodak Zi8 typically sells for $179, but you can find it on Amazon for a little less than that.

Honorable Mention:
Flip Mino: It isn’t HD, but it’s about $60 cheaper than the Kodak Zi8.

Kodak Zi8 HD pocket camcorder: External mic jack, 1080p, $179

Kodak Zi8 HD ultra-portable camcorder

I had a chance to use the Zi6 to cover CES, and I thought it was a great little HD video recorder. Good things can always get better, and Kodak has improved the Zi6 in many ways, and the end result is the Kodak Zi8. The Kodak Zi8 still has:

  • A swing out USB arm, but now it’s flexible
  • Removable batteries, now a lithium-ion battery that can be charged in or out of the camera
  • SD card slot - so you can bring extra cards and keep on shooting
  • 2.5-inch color LCD

Now, tack on these new Zi8 features, and you’ll see what all the fuss is about:

  • External Microphone Jack
  • Full HD 1080p video capture
  • Built-in electronic image stabilization
  • 5MP still capture
  • Improved low light performance
  • Smart face-tracking technology

Yeah, that external mic jack caught us by surprise as well. Very nice. The Kodak Zi8 will be available in September in red, blue, and black, and you can pre-order it on Amazon for $179

Kodachrome, R.I.P.

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cameras, Corporate News

KodachromeBecause of poor sales, Eastman Kodak has decided to take our Kodachrome away. No more greens of summer when the stock that is left sells out, probably this fall. The film first came out in 1935 and was a huge hit, but now accounts for less than 1% of the company’s market. Most camera owners opt for digital and newer film technology and although the company claims to be nostalgic, it still comes down to profit.

Kodak Zi6 box front

Continuing our look at pocket HD camcorders, we were able to get our hands on a new Kodak Zi6 Pocket Video Camera, which shoots in 720p high definition, at a full 60 frames per second. In case you were wondering, that’s unique for ultra-portable HD camcorders. There isn’t much storage space on-board, but that is rectified by the SD card slot, which supports up for a 32 GB SD card. The Kodak Zi6 also includes an SD AV cable, as well as an HD cable, allowing you to plug the camera directly into an to view the content on it. It takes two AA batteries, and they throw in two rechargeable AAs, as well a charger. We’ve taken a bunch of images of the device, which you can find in our Kodak Zi6 gallery. If you are interested in picking on up, here’s a Kodak Zi6 coupon link, where Kodak is offering $30 off. Not bad.

Malia Obama’s camera: Kodak EasyShare M893 IS

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cameras, Hot Deals

Malia Obama Kodak EasyShare M893 IS

We’ve been getting quite a few emails today asking about the camera that Malia Obama was using during Barack Obama’s inaugural address, so we figured a post was in order. Malia was taking images and/or recording video on her Kodak EasyShare M893 IS 8.1MP digital camera. It looks like she was sporting the purple version, but it is also available in red, black, and silver. You can grab one for just over $100 at Amazon.

We’re still curious if we’ll get to see any of the shots and footage that Malia scored from the amazing seats she had.
