Kodak Zi8 HD Pocket Cam Flips the Finger at Mino

kodak-zi8Kodak has announced the successor to its Zi6 pocket camcorder with the UK launch of the Flip-rivaling Kodak Zi8 digital video camera which should shove the Flip HD‘s nose out of joint.

The original Zi6 managed to record at 720p but the Zi8 records in full 1080p high definition and there’s also built-in electronic image stabilisation.

Kodak claims that this is all to enable you “to spontaneously capture HD video – of heartwarming moments, of ‘can you believe that?’ moments, and of just plain laugh-out-loud moments – and then quickly and easily share them” – sounds like everyday to me 🙂

The Zi8 is equipped with a 2.5 inch LCD display and a flexible swing-out USB arm for uploading and charging.

It’s also packing the ability to capture 5 megapixel stills, face tracking, stereo sound recording and comes complete with an HDMI cable.

Kodak claims the little camcorder can record up to 10 hours of HD video with the expandable SD/SDHC card slot that supports up to 32GB cards.

The KODAK Zi8 digital video camera will be available in aqua, raspberry and black from September and will retail for £149.99.

So Flip HD or Kodak Zi8? What’s your choice gonna be?
