RCA Small Wonder. Flip Video. Creative Vado. Flip Mino. There are a lot of these pocket camcorders bandying around these days, but the one advantage that the new Kodak Zi6 will have over them is its ability to record high-definition video.
It won’t do 1080p, but this little pocket camcorder is perfectly capable of capturing 720p HD video at 60fps. That’s mighty impressive, assuming that the image quality turns out half decent. The kooks at Gizmodo gave it a whirl and they determined that the video “looked great” when projected onto a 40-inch flat panel TV.
Aside from high-def video, the Kodak Zi6 can also do lower quality VGA video and regular stills. The SDHC slot will swallow cards up to 32GB and power comes by way of rechargeable NiMH AA batteries. Look for the Kodak to launch this September for $180.
