Kodak Mini Video/Still Camera is Waterproof


If you were ready to buy a pocket video recorder, or had settled on a particular unit but were postponing your purchase, you might want to hold off a while longer until the new Kodak Mini Video Camera becomes available. It’s a slick little camera that should be a lot of fun.


The Kodak Mini Video Camera is tiny. At just 2.4 inches wide by 3.5 inches high by 0.5 inches thick, it’s only slightly bigger than a credit card. It weighs 2.5 ounces, which is so light you can just pop it in your pocket or purse and keep it there until you run into something worth capturing. And if that something happens to be near or in the water, have no fears, because this camera is waterproof up to 10 feet.


The Kodak Mini Video Camera captures 640 x 480 video and stills. A 3x digital zoom brings you closer to the action, while a 1.8-inch color LCD lets you review what you’ve captured. The camera records to microSD/SDHC memory cards up to 16GB in capacity, and a 2GB microSD card is included.


You’ll never have to look for wires to charge the built-in battery or transfer content to a computer because the camera features a built-in USB arm that can never go lost. Also built into the camera is ARCSOFT software that lets you edit video and still files.


The price of the Kodak Mini Video Camera is as small as its size. It costs $99.95. Available in gray and red, you might just want to get one of each. And you can pre-order them at B&H now.
