Kodak 1402486 Reviews

Pocket Video Remote Control is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little item...a must have! I carry my Zi8 HD Pocket Video cam all the time. It's compact, HD to SD card and you never know when you'll come across a great shot. Seems like a remote for such a small unit as my Zi8 was silly but if you want to set the camera and be in the shot its a life saver. Very compact so you can palm it and not make it obvious you're holding it on camera. It's simple, straight forward and just plain handy! Very affordable! Thanks B&H for always having what I need from the simple consumer stuff to all the pro stuff I use everyday!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this remote This remote control has been a wonderful addition to my video tool kit. Its compact, durable and lightweight so its easy to carry around. As a blogger, who uses the camera to record interviews and other quick hit content I found the remote a valuable addition to start/stop recording while I'm in the shot. The only minor criticism I have is that the remote does not turn on/off the camera.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOES NOT WORK WITH PLAYTOUCH! It has been my experience so far that this remote DOES NOT work with the new Playtouch as advertised! I bought the camera and the remote together. The only button that would work on the remote is the record button. I tried 3 remotes on 3 different cameras and vice versa at Best Buy and the same problem existed on every occasion. I would have thought that Kodak would have done their own testing before they advertised that this remote is compatible with the Playtouch...IT IS NOT! Customer support is clueless they have even tried to convince me that if I plug it into a television some of the buttons will work! This is crazy I don't care if SOME of the buttons work. They don't all work as advertised! I bought this remote to control the Playtouch while recording on a tripod.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok but don't expect miracles This remote works but it does not correct the problems faced with the Zi8 and use with HDMI hooked to the tv. Either using the remote or using the camcorder itself when hooked to a tv will be aggravating to some. The problem is the controls, they don't respond as one is accustom to using DVD players. The system lags and is slow to respond, and I was hoping the remote would help, but it does not. In fact, you really need to let an operation stop fully before moving on and doing something else, whether with or without the remote. For example, if you want to stop one clip and move to the next, you can't just press the buttons on the remote and expect it to quickly do this. It won't. But the remote will usually run the controls as well as working them on the Zi8 itself. Just don't expect miracles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You gotta get one The Zi8 has a great picture but I prefer to use it on a tripod because it has a much more professional presentation. To keep from moving the camera at all this is just the thing. The infrared sensor is on the front so you have to give it the reach around if you're behind it but receives from a very wide angle so not a problem. I used it at a seminar and all the other photographers were watching this enviously. They all wanted to know about my rig. Really, you need this, you just don't know it yet. You can control playback on a big screen connected by HDMI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to get remote found at B&H photo. This remote is a fantastic accessory for my Kodak Zi8 HD digicamcorders (I have two). This is my second remote - the first one was for my wife but I've been using hers for about 6 months. Now I'll have my own. It allows me to set the recording modes; start and stop filming; zoom in and out smoothly; take snapshots; review what was recorded; and even delete what I don't want transfered to the PC - all without touching the camera (which avoids shaking the camera). It's (of course) wireless and seems to work within about 30 feet from the camera. I've used it while in front of the camera and behind the camera without any problems. The only thing it can't do is turn the camera on and off. Other than that, it's light, and about 1/2 inch narrower than a credit card.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great remote for your Kodak video camera The Pocket Video Remote is the perfect addition to my Kodak Playsport camera. I can easily show videos to family and friends. It it easy to use, just point and click like any remote, but be careful about how far you are from the camera. Works best at around 15 feet or less. If you don't have the remote and you show your videos on your t.v. often, you will not regret purchasing this remote. Also makes it possible to record yourself with the remote if the camera is on a tripod. Just hit record and stop when your done.
