Kodak ZX1 HD Pocket Video Camera


With the advent of Youtube and social media video sharing websites (daily motion, vimeo, etc.) the demand for portable video capturing devices has grown rapidly over the past year. Kodak launches it's ZX1 Pocket Video Camera in the next few days at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This portable camera/camcorder boasts a sealed speaker and microphone, 720 pixels HD recording video quality, HDTV playback via the included HDMI cable, pre-charged AA Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, weather reistant design, optimized Youtube and video sharing due to built in video software, a 2.0 inch LCD screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio, and it is available in: black, red, pink, blue, and yellow. Video files will be written as .mov files and the ZX1 also has a SDHC slot which allows for an additional 32GB of storage via a SD memory card. It will be available in April and retails for roughly $149.

I like the sleek design of this camera and it reminds me of cell phones from the late 90's. I have been looking into acquiring a portable video recording device and this offering from Kodak appears to fulfill all of the requirements that I was looking for. I definitely think that High Definition portable video recording devices will be the new "MP3 player" and EVERYONE will have one soon. I'm sure that Apple/Macintosh is already working on one as I write this....

"Sophie... Sweet Sophie..."

Anyway, I'm considering getting this HD portable camera. It's a shame iPhone didn't have video, only a still camera. This Kodak camera is not too sexy though.

Btw, your blog is great for killing time at work. ;)

I agree with you on the sexy factor, but you know Apple must be making an uber-sexy one... we'll just have to wait and see....
