What HD Camera To Buy?


I found your site on SiteSell, I have a site www.travel-to-oregon-tips.com

I want to begin putting travel videos on the site and I will begin the learning process through your site. In review of the video cameras you have listed, what about the smaller "Flip" style cameras. Any recommendations? I'd like a small camera so it is easy to carry at all times for those unique shots.

Thanks, appreciate your feedback...

What HD Camera To Buy?

The main problem with the 'Flip' style cameras are they do not have a mic port (An essential feature), so audio was always poor.

Until now that is!

The new Kodak Zi8 produces 5X better video quality than the Flip Ultra HD, has image stabilization, true 1080p HD video, face tracking and......a mic port!

About bloody time as well ;-)

I have been testing the Zi8 and the only negatives I can find for this type of camera is the jerky zoom (You should really frame your shot first and then record anyway, so no big deal), and the recorded video format (MOV) needs to be encoded before PC users can edit it (Mac users can edit it in it's original format).

Due to the lens size and cost (Less than $200, although stocks are currently low everywhere and prices are rising), don't expect the same video quality and features of a $500 camcorder, but this is a good budget camera and a great effort by Kodak.

It's a real Flip killer!

Hope that helps?
