i think it have a bit better sensor than flip and kodak
also it takes 10 mega pixels stills
various recording modes 1080p 30fps/720p 30 and 60 fps/ 480p 60fps.
all this sounds fine.
but is there any obvious problems in it ? how about video quality?

I played with my friend's u10 last week and from what I remember there is no zoom in 1080p mode. Also to zoom in and out you need to tap it and when you do record you can hear the tapping. The three mics is a very awesome feature. Also I remember it having lots of settings. Changing it to black n white, sephia, etc. Also sport mode, fine or super fine video quality. There's more settings but I can't remember them at the moment. Also the tripod thing is on the side at the bottom so it comes with an extra plastic adapter thing so the tripod can be mounted from the bottom. So if you use the tripod, don't forget to leave that plastic thing in your pocket. kind of a hassle. I like the video quality. The picture quality is good in good light. Better than Zi8 picture quality. The lens kinda sticks out so if you worried of breaking it or something just get a case if you don't want to just leave it in your pocket.

I have three choices kodak zi8, samsung u10, jvc picsio.not sure yet which one to buy.
I can decide if I see a raw sample videos from these three cameras in the same recoding mode and the same situation.

Good to hear ApG, but how did it compare in low light to the zi8?

Eagerly waiting for footage on the web, to find out what the highest data-rates is in 1080p30 and 720p60.

bollity,

There are a few other models, the DXG vertical model (forget the model number) and the RCA z409HD. Both of which may offer a 60i/p? 1080 mode. Probably released next month. Of course, Kodak is supposed to be realizing a new model in the next year.

I wonder when Sony, Sanyo and Toshiba will be releasing new models.

i don't care about 1080.
i care much about 720 60fps and good still photos.
i will do some search about dxg and rca to see if the specifications is suitable for me.

And here is a Review ifind vrey informitive in ways

a video clip on a motor bike

As I find online inVimeo, only one person with the tags of Samsung hmx u10, anddo not carefor a companies virds eye view. they nevershow a actual persons view, we're not robots here, we are humans, lol.
Youtube has quite a bit more, and I find the one I posted very interesting, giving you his honest opinion, comment and rate, he be happy to see some positive feedback.

Between theKodak ZI8 andSamsung Hmx-u10, of what you asked about.

I really cannotcommenttill later.

Samsung is more a Better device then the Kodak in its ways. But are you willing to sacrafrice one thing for the other?

What can they be wesay.

External mic, over a sterio three mic.

touchscreen controls over standard button controls.
internal battery over remoavable battery.

bigger screen over smaller screen.
the list can go on and on.....


I am happy with theKodak ZI8, I as well wonder what the new one will have additional, as the owner of youtube holds back from answering Lol

We all know in the near future, other models will be aired, we are also wonderingwhen the online sites will upgrade to a biggerformat as well.

hd720P 60 fps is the optimum setting for todays users, when they do not need to upgrade their personal computers to a maxed out level for these higher bitrate. its forcing us to move foward .

watch the clips they are good.
