With the candy-bar style video camera market featuring only a handful of offerings and perhaps most notably led with the Flip, Kodak releases an all new competitor with their Zi8. Coming in at a high-definition full 1080p format, other leading features include image stabilization and an SD card slot which effectively trumps the previous king of the hill, Flip Mino HD in the features department. Despite the added features, the Kodak Zi8’s pricing comes in at the same as its direct competitor Flip Mino HD with a suggested retail price of $180 USD.
