Summary: I purchased my Kodak ZX1 2 years ago and I still use it to this date. It records good quality HD video at 60FPS or 30FPS. Also you can record in VGA format which doesn't produce such a high quality image as the other formats. I use the camcorder for everything from youtube videos to holiday photo's.
Summary: I purchased this item over a year ago for my daughter and I couldn't be happier. She enjoys making videos and she is always round the house filming. The quality is very good, with a choice of VGA, HD or HD60 and it is quick and easy to use. My daughter was stuck between the Flip Ultra HD and this one at the start but now is very pleased she choose this one.
Summary: It's an excellent buy for this price. All you have to do is put the batteries in, plug it in the PC, spend about 3 minutes setting up the software and you're away!! I WOULD suggest buying an SDHC card though! Without the card, the Kodak ZX1 only has 15 seconds of internal memory.... So buy an 8gb SDHC card, and make sure it arrives the same day as your this Camera, or you'll be disappointed. Anyway, the recording quality is great. Don't expect mind blowing quality.
Recording duration of 27h 30m at VGA resolution on a 32Gb card...

Summary: I've written this (rather brief) review because having searched high & low, all over the Net, no-where (including in the Zx1's manual as well as on Kodak's website) does it list or even talk about, the amount of space VGA video takes up & thus, how much footage you can save to a SDHC Card, irrespective of card-size.
Summary: Excellent picture from a small, unobtrusive camera. Controls are easy to use, battery life excellent providing you use good batteries (I tend not to use the re-chargeable ones). The only downside is, being Kodak, the video is in the .MOV format. By using a free file convertor you can convert them to another format, eg MPEG, and you can then use most video editing software. The only trouble is you lose the HD!
Summary: I use two of these cameras with 32gb SDHC cards recording indoor CCTV footage in my shop. Perhaps not what they were designed for! Using the mains adaptor these cameras have been in constant daily use (10 hours per day) for over 6 months - without problems. The images produced in all light conditions are far superior to my other CCTV systems. Printing individual images for the Videos produce amazing quality pictures on A4 paper.
