Kodak recently came out with a newer model, the impressive Zi8 (which retails for $180), but the Kodak Zi6 Pocket Video Camera, a longtime favorite, is on sale at OfficeMax for $100 with free shipping. This all-around great camcorder was one of the first to feature HD (it shoots in three video modes), and it captures 3-megapixel still images. The simple-to-use Zi6 also has a crisp, roomy 2.4-inch screen, and it captures vibrant colors well.
The Zi8 boasts enhanced image quality and a microphone jack (among other improvements over the Zi6). Is the newer model worth an extra $80? That depends on your needs. Check out our Pocket HD Camcorders Buying Guide for some guidance.
