Kodak intros 1080p pocket camcorder

HD, in your pocket

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Kodak already has two 720p-capable pocket camcorders under its belt, but now the firm’s upped its game with the unveiling of a full HD model.

Kodak's Zi8 camcorder records 1080p video

The Zi8 – which follows on the from January’s Zx1 and 2008’s Zi6 – can capture video at up to 1080p and features an integrated electronic image stabiliser that, according to Kodak, helps to produce sharper videos with less blur.

Although the Zi8’s form factor is almost identical to that of the previous two models, you will benefit from an ever-so-slightly larger display – 2.5in instead of 2.4in – and the ability to capture 5Mp “HD still pictures”.

All data’s stored onto SD memory cards of up to 32GB and the ubiquitous swing-out USB arm – which features on both the Zx1 and Zi6 – also features on the Zi8. Presumably the latest pocket camcorder has an HDMI port too, because Kodak’s promised to throw in an HDMI cable.

Kodak’s Zi8 pocket camcorder will be available in aqua, raspberry and black body colours from September, priced at £150 ($245/€173). ®
