Full Featured Pocket Camcorder: Kodak Zi8

Techstination feature for Monday, November 9, 2009

A full featured pocket camcorder. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Those little pocket camcorders that were initially made popular by the Flip line are still winning lots of fans. Ease of use and pocketability are the key reasons why. And Kodak has taken the category a step higher...with the Zi8. It has high def capability....and not just the typical 720p. Kodak's Nancy Carr...

"So it captures 1080p at 30 frames per second. It even has a five megapixel still camera. Other features that it has for great image capture is it's got a 2 and a half inch LCD for viewing the pictures when you're capturing them and it's got optical image stabilization. And then finally the feature that a lot of people have been asking us for is an attachable microphone."

That can make a big difference in sound quality. The Zi8 sells for 179 dollars in either raspberry, blue or black. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
