Default Sill a good deal

even at $79, that's still a good deal considering the mic in, larger lcd and expandable memory.

Don't miss out again....

the online only price is back down to $70 shipped -

A very short (20 sec) clip which I had to reduce to 640x360 (I only have slow broadband) - showing its ability and sound quality off its built-in mono mic - no, not hi-fi, but more than acceptable (to me) -

PhotoBucket doesn't seem to understand widescreen for its thumbnail -
but the video is in the correct aspect ratio.

Please let us know how you get on?

I just noticed that the ad no longer stipulates that it's an online only price.....

so the hint about printing the page and taking it to a local Office Max to match the web price was good advice.

The Kodak Zi8 is one of the best performing pocket HD camcorders -
not just from reviews but some footage I have seen -

kodak play touch full review part three
may seems strange to cite fishycomics' review of the newer Kodak PlayTouch Zi10 - but I believe this footage was shot with the Zi8 - fishycomics mentions it at around 3:22-3 watch it in 720p to appreciate how good the actual video is. Sound? using a Sony stereo mic - I'm sure fishy can tell us which, how much and where?

Zi8 handheld skate test
shows how good the EIS actually is and the footage again is very good looking......
