I totally agree.

Both are the same lens, and there are no manufacturer or way to prove it. one wil lsay it's a glass lens, the other plastic. sorry t osay they are the same.

the depth I believe is not good and one has to Modify the unit to the lens, that means we have to take off the outer shell, and plastic, or glass and that test I can do at a later time, not worth doing for Iam happy, with the Outcome, others may be to picky LOL

Yes a brick wall will do

Here is a Excellent review you'll enjoy, and when placing the Kodak Zi8 to the test, you'll see how Hi, Med, and low works on the internal, and external mic.

besides the sound, take a look how Blue the sky shot is, I am and WOW'd! of the colors. I am suprized how the sound surrounding was bouncing in the hockey rink.

like I have said Kodak must take the next step, not in the future of new models, but of what we already own, even though it is a hardware, andfirmware, guess we have to look at the boxs, and rely on others to tell us that "hey I can save te mic gain" Enjoy the clip.......

(all fun)

I hope you're getting all the video you can save

remember hd720P 60f at night shot are not 60f, tey degrade to 30f.

After going through 100's of electronic stores in the golden district of Kowloon, I was able to find only one store selling conversion lens kit. as you can see from the photo, it's nothing professional as it was intended for cell phone camera, cost about $15 for the kit. I'll take some photos with it later and if good, I'll have to go back to the store and see if they can order some in before we leave next week.
