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'm still in testing mode with this at the moment. The main 'issue' with this is it doesn't like low light conditions. I read this on the other reviews so I knew what I was getting myself in for. I used it in the woods on a miserable day and the quality wasn't that great. Alternatively, I've used it outside in open space during the day and been amazed with the film quality.
Kodak Zx1 Pocket Video Camera: Simples video camera

Summary: I recently celebrated my first wedding anniversary and decided that due to not having a perfect time on our honeymoon I would take my wife away on a second honeymoon and in order to capture all of those memories for her to be able to look back on happily I purchased her the Kodak Zx1 HD video camera in pink as her anniversary present and following using it on a number of occassions I felt it now fair to leave an honest review of this pocket video camera.
Pros: Well made, good looks, easy to use, take HD video on the move, store to SD card
