Kodak Flips-Out With 1080p Pocket Camera

Kodak Flips-Out With 1080p Pocket Camera: "
m8163_ekn036561enzi8_fl-bf_raspberry_250x200Watch out, Flip, Kodak’s in town, and he’s a’gunnin’ for ya. Kodak’s new Zi8 pocket video camera comes in at $20 less than Flip’s Ultra HD and manages to beat it in almost every way. The Kodak shoots 1080p, the Flip just 720p. The Kodak has built-in image stabilization (electronic, not physical), a microphone socket and an SD card slot for adding up to 32GB of memory (although it ships without a card in the box and just 128MB internal memory). The Flip doesn’t. The Kodak even has ther Flip’s trademark flip-out USB plug and snaps five megapixel stills.

In short, if you were thinking of buying a Flip Ultra HD, you should be taking a long look at the Kodak instead. Heck, Kodak even hired a designer this time and made the camera look nice, something the company hasn’t done for a while. $180, available September.
