Forget everything you know about low-priced handheld digital camcorders for the trail — because Kodak is about to rock your on-the-trail video-recording world.
The new Kodak Zi6 costs below $200, records 720p HD video at 60 frames per second, stores video in an SD card slot expandable to 32GB, and runs on included rechargeable AA batteries. No zoom included — but these units typically don’t have them, anyway.
Hiking magazines have gone crazy for the Flip series of handheld camcorders, and I’ll bet this Kodak model will get their salivary glands when it hits stores this September. Check the Kodak press release for more details.
