Kodak Zi8 HD Video Test: Ella Playing the Kitty Cat Keyboard

I was looking for a small, ultra compact HD video recorder for doing quick videos with little set-up or fiddling around required.

My first thought was the FLIP, but after checking out some reviews and specs, it became apparent the Kodak Zi8 was a better choice and a better price.

I got mine on sale of a little over a $100, and the Zi8 does 1080HD video whereas the FLIP video recorder doesn't (at least not the ones I was looking at the time).

So far I'm thrilled with the Zi8. It has great color and really good video quality. The Zi8 even has a macro setting that works quite well.

Even better, the Zi8 has a mic in jack to use an external microphone! Bonus!

Here's a sample video I shot with my Kodak Zi8 of Ella playing the Kitty Cat Keyboard. Basically un-edited HD footage.
