Kodak Zi6: Best Portable HD Video Recorder?

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

For once, I’m doing a product review while using the product itself. The new Kodak Zi6 is designed to turn you into a paparazzo simply by turning it on. It takes high quality videos that you are able to upload instantly.

Become an instant celebrity or paparazzo! This sleek pocketable design is built for easy video—there is no lens cap, no dials to turn, or settings to set. Just turn it on and hit record to capture the action, adventure, and all the juicy details in stunning HD! Make your cinematic debut on any HDTV. Or just pop the USB in the nearest PC and you’re ready to share the fun on YouTube™. Edit, add music, and personalize your flick and easily share with your adoring fans. There’s no such thing as “you should’ve been there” with the Zi6.

Features include:

  • Capture HD quality video (720p at 60 fps with 16:9 aspect ratio).
  • Record hours of video with the expandable SD/SDHC card slot that can hold up to 32 GB.
  • See it all on a vibrant 2.4 in. LCD screen.
  • Catch the highlights with slow motion playback right in the palm of your hand.
  • Choose the video quality that works for you: HD at 60 fps, HD at 30 fps, or VGA.
  • Upload your videos to YouTube™ quickly and easily using the built-in USB and software.
  • Experience your videos on an HDTV in stunning HD quality with included cables.

Much like the Flip camcorder, it has a little button you push on the side to make the USB plugin pop out. The thing that’s really nice is that the button you push to pop out the USB plugin also is a mirror. This way, I can see that I’m getting the right angle. It’ll fit in your pocket, and it’s super lightweight. It shoots really high quality HD. For that to be able to fit in your shirt pocket is in itself reason enough to buy one.

  1. Just bought this today because of your video.

    Just shot a quick video with the Kodak Zi6.

    Plugged it into my MacBook Pro, iPhoto saw it and imported it.

    Dragged it to the desktop.

    Then uploaded it direct to Vimeo without any compression.

  2. Hey Chris I just bought the Kodak zi6, and no, it can not hold up to 32 gb’s. I went to fry’s to purchased a 32gb SDHC card only to find an error once I popped the card in. I received a red exclamation mark on the SD icon showing that it was incompatible with my camera. I am not sure if anyone else has had this problem but i would love to know!

  3. I bought a 32gb Topram SDHC card off Ebay and it didn’t work either. Same exclamation point problem, firmware update didn’t fix it either, anyone got a solution. I tried using the official SD formatter.

  4. You might mention that this nifty device requires a computer with a fairly fast processor, 2.83 GHz, I believe. That’s faster than my 2 year-old imac, and many others.
