My New Camcorder is Here

November 12, 2008

My new Kodak Zi6 pocket camcorder was delivered to my door today! Here it is:

Flip Video (click the picture below)

I think the features of both are pretty much the same, but the Kodak was less expensive. I like that it’s compact, so that it won’t be a hassle to take with me everywhere. It includes editing software and uploads videos directly to YouTube.

Now I just have to learn how to use it!

    Oh…..Martha! I have 4 Flips. I love them more than I can explain. I don’t know about this Kodak. However, I do have 2 Kodak digitals and I don’t think I would buy another. Maybe they improved on things with this dig video version. Maybe.
    Meanwhile, I just have to tell you. I take a Flip everywhere. I have a Sony Handycam $$$$$. It has dust on it now. My Flips are my thing. I use them for all my YouTube videos because they are just so easy and handy. The resolution isn’t as good as my Sony, but for the internet they are just fine.
    Congratulations on you new toy. I am sure you will LOVE it.

    Shereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Mary, it means that I have put the thought out there so that I am now accountable for my stated goals. It helps keep me honest!!

    Sheree, I think they are pretty much interchangeable, judging from the specs. My son said his company had the flip and now they have these. Four flips??? I’m sooo impressed! I can’t wait to enter the world of video. I agree that the internet doesn’t require big high resolution stuff. So stay tuned. I promise to keep at this until I figure it all out.

    How cool is that!! I’d love to have a video camera so I could take moving pictures of the cats running around in the yard naked!….Oh. That’s just the neighbors.

    Martha,
    The reason I have 4 Flips is because I am teaching the kids at school how to use them. This is another reason I love them so much. Even little kids can understand how to work them and the footage they shoot isn’t all that bad!!!

    Also, I use my Flip instead of my Handicam when I am doing my fitness videos. I put the Flip down my shirt and the lens sticks out of my cleavage. I call it my “Boob Cam”. LOL LOL LOL LOL

    Most of the footage gained for this video was achieved due to the FLIP stuffed down my shirt. Oh Yeah!! Technology is a great thing! LOL

    Sheree you are amazing! I love your videos and hope mine can be as unpretentious as yours. So you literally put it down your shirt??? I want to do that! I’d like to take the cam to all the interesting places I visit.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
