Yes return demand full refund plus your shipping and free shipping. do not accept less.
I bought it from an online store, and their policy is that I can either return the defective unit for a replacement or return it for a 90% compensation. I was more leaning toward the compensation because who knows if the next refurbished zi8 they send me will work either.

Or i could send it in to kodak, but there is a problem with that. The zi8 works fine for a couple minutes when it is completely cool. Wont they think it's not broken and just send it back to me? Or do they do a better system check than that? Or will they immediately send me a new refurb and worry about fixing the one i sent them on their own time?

i dont have very much experience with this.

the Online is Kodak, or the Online is OTHER?

bestbuy has the cam at 130.00 20.00 will be the restocking fee, vs 10% and shipping.

Kodak sends to their sub-contractor repair. not kodak , its Precision. and they may replace with a refurb. Sometimes a refurb is not bad, if no issues are passed.

thank you for the Kind words Scorbing Pm'd ya.

Be a pleasure when I pass through the area..

Love downtown disney, not a fan with the Cigar shops they did, and Mc D's. Kids love the different character places, but not when Chain tores like BK, and Mc D and otehr are tossed in, Money must be tight and understand tehy have to get attention out there. and Count Down to extintion, was tehir big one. the Dino cafe will make a killing but its a duplicate of rain forest in dino stuff LOL.
I had a blast there. and love the place.

If the other online store is an authorised Kodak refurb dealer, I would send it to Kodak with a note explaining the problem. I believe Kodak usually send you another refurb ijnstead of waiting for yours to be repaired. Refurb are generally good but you can call or write them to test the unit out first to make sure it doesn't have any problem. If you squeek (complain) louder (as in squeeky wheels), they might even send you a new unit. There's no guarranty you will get a perfect working unit in new stock. good luck!

Default Zi8 Test Video on HD 1080p

I went to Sea World orlando yesterday to test the low light capabilities of the Zi8. Here's a full RAW video of the act at Nautilus Theater. It is a big download file but well worth it. It was shot on 1080p. Enjoy.
