Default spare battery

I have just ordered a second spare battery frm Amazon.ca, under CDN$5 shipped, 1400 mAH, review said lasted longer than original Kodak battery.
My mistake - should have order together with charger for $10...

Cheers, max

Thanks maxhuey. As odak shows the skin. I am guessing the Tripod is opened, it seems to look that way, but the others on the side look to be closed, so you cannot access the usb ports, sd ports, and Ext mic ports... No sideview. Missleading to me. Only a front, and back view.

It makes the ZI8 so much better looking BIG TIME, I may dump the 17.00 andshipping,

Today I felt like doinga Outside review, thought I have the area to myself, well when nice weather is stil around, the more people gather.

I used the Kodak ZI8, Playsport, and thought the Aiptek A-HD+ was fully charged I was pulled to the side, by person, talked about the good stuff, off I went........

Every pot hole, person etc, was out today Lol.... so I did the best with wha I had..........

I used the MEP 16P HD, and I do not like it, at all, it's like the Newest model cam, has newer stuff, and missing stuff........

Example , making a title is not on the video, not to the side if I am lookingfor a effect, it is no longer where it should be,somewhere else lol.

I even tried using Corel pro X3 and not loving it.

As long as the programs do no crash, I best be happy, period.

They say the best video's are done with minimal effects. so till the video is finished, those re my thoughts.

As MEP 16P finished, I was shocked how poor it rendered, stuttered and hesitated, maybe just me but MEP 15P is a whole lot better Smooth.....

I render always to a WMV 1280x720 streamline.

price varies, but not the issue.

take note, the one you direct is the better LOL, while the one Kodak shows is NOT.

Remote sensor on the Amazon is shown open which is a Plus, but yet both show for the USB arm. lol

Guess i am being picky. or just a perfectionist LMAO!

I wonder with less side opening makes a Better cover, more seal tight, more openings a weaker cover, easier for tears.

Still a great protector, if asked.

If Kodak made this they must take a lil extra time to think of the mistakes.........

I'll bet you skin will show up at EFADS in a few months, just like iphone skin for a bit over a buck. I got perfect fitting case few months ago for $1.12, even has external holder for spare battery
