Summary: This video camera does take really good quality videos for something so small and portable, but the microphone hardly works at all. So you get great video footage but most of the time hardly any sound to go with it. So I guess if you are not bothered about sound quality it would work for you. You also have to buy a memory card separately because it does not have one included.
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: we were disappointed that the camera when delivered was just left beside the doorstep & no note was put through the letter-box to inform us, however once opened my 8 year old daughter found the camera fairly easy to use & the results quite impressive, it would be better if the camera came with either an sd card or more memory otherwise a good purchase
