Ok, so this little camera performs. It is easy to use and takes decent looking video. Comes with aa rechargeable batteries and a charger. Also included is a cable to go right into your dv capable tv. And then you use the usb cable to transfer your videos to your pc. Let’s face it, even with all the ipod this and ipad that and iphone yada yada, this is still very much a pc world. On most counts well over 90% of users.
Once i decided i needed a pocket-sized video camera, it was between this and the playsport. I knew i wanted to have the option of recording longer than the flip allows, and since this camera uses sd cards, that was taken care of. Running on aa’s means it’s easy to find batteries if you need to (although it chews through regular alkaline batteries pretty fast). The rechargeable aa’s it comes with last pretty good, and i’m planning on getting the power adapter cord as well. I work in a dog shelter, and needed a small camera i could always have on me to take video of the dogs. This is perfect, and being weather resistant, i don’t have to worry about it if it starts sprinkling when i’m outside taping (nice in the northwest). We had a flip donated, so i’ve been able to compare the two cameras side by side. The flip has a beautiful, bright screen that is lovely, and a slightly wider angle lens than the kodak, both of which i like. The built-in usb plug is also nice, as is the soft ‘velvety’ finish, which makes it grip-able without being ‘sticky’. The battery charge also lasts pretty well in the flip.
This is just what i need for travel and regular home use. Small, easy to handle, takes great hd video and still shots. I can’t wait to test out its sand and water resistance when i take it on a beach trip in april. Fits easily in my purse so it won’t take up lots of room in my carry on bag. I’m so happy i ordered this one. Here are the specifications for the Kodak ZxD Pocket Video Camera:

The kodak pocket video recorder zxd is easy to use, durable, low cost, youtube ready, and is worth every penny. I have had all types of video recorders, jvc camcorder, sony handy cam and although good products, they were not user friendly and somewhat cumbersome. This zxd is so user friendly that even my elderly aunt of 88 found it to be a remarkable camera and wanted to keep it. I would recommend this product to anyone, any age.
Nice little toy, use it a lot.
Shipped fast, in great condition good price. The thing to remember with this model is that it does not have wide angle lens.
