The Kodak Zx1 Handheld HD Camcorder looks like a brick when come compared to others in the mini-camcorder world albeit a fairly attractive brick. Mini-camcorders
are no longer extraordinary and even HD mini-handheld cameras are becoming more common place so the Kodak Zx1 Handheld Camcorder had its work cut-out from the beginning if it was to stand out from the crowd.
Under its rough and gruff exterior, the Kodak Zx1 Handheld Camcorder hides 720p HD (60fps) video capture, up to 10hours of HD video held on up to 34GB of storage (via the SD / SDHC card slot) and comes with a HDMI cable meaning TV-out is a doddle (easy). It also has that most essential of features, easy upload to YouTube (and now that YouTube has an HD option, it makes uploading in HD worthwhile)
The exterior of the Kodak Zx1 Handheld Camcorder is water-resistant (IP43-certified) and features a two-inch screen. Kodak have also generously included pre-charges AA rechargable batteries in the bundle and a charger.
For a brick, it looks pretty sexy and, apart from black, is avaialble in 4 other colors to make it look less brickish – pink, blue, yellow and red. For $149.95 come this April, the Kodak Zx1 Handheld HD Camcorder looks even better….
