Record all the action in high definition with the Kodak Zi8 Pocket Video Camera (Black). With this affordable and easy-to-use camcorder you can record 1080p or 720p HD video and 5MP widescreen (16:9) digital stills. And the camera utilizes flash memory, known for its ease of use. Store your footage to either SD/SDHC memory cards up to 32GB (not included) or to the 128MB built-in flash memory.
A short tour around the Zi8 reveals a 2.5" LCD screen for composing and playing back video and stills. It also features a swing out USB arm, HDMI, USB 2.0, and A/V outputs; all of which make the sharing process more user-friendly. The camcorder also features a microphone input that provides the option of recording stereo audio.
Other features of the camera include one function generally unheard of in the point-and-shoot camcorder market: image stabilization. This means that your video will be sharper and have less blurring motion than regular handheld video. There's even 4x digital zoom for getting closer to your subject. Another feature that's rare on the scene is Kodak's smart face tracking which helps to capture in focus shots of your friend's smiling faces.
When you're ready to upload your videos to YouTube, Facebook, or other social networking sites, the built-in software makes it a breeze. The software also lets you edit and trim videos, make picture/music mash-ups, and capture still images from video. If you're looking for a point-and-shoot camcorder that offers a few more options than the norm, the Zi8 has the extra bells and whistles you just might be looking for.
