The Kodak Zi8 Releases Tuesday

I am still pretty stoked about the Kodak Zi8. For a pocket camera, I’m not sure it can be beat. Here’s a test video. The microphone is horrible, but remember it has an external mic input. I don’t think my consumer DV camcorder would have fared any better, audio wise. There are some glitches in this, and I wonder if it is because the shake reduction is trying too hard. I wonder it it had been a smaller object than a boat, or if shake reduction had been off, would the video have been smoother? (Does the youtube upload affect it?)

Even so. Compared to other pocket cameras, this one performs as well and have superior features.

At least, that’s what I think before I own one.
