Quick Look: Kodak Zx1 camcorder


We’ve been excited about the Zx1 since they announced it at CES and now it’s finally arrived. This successor to the popular Zi6 is a mini-camcorder with direct-to-YouTube capability along with an SD card slot for storage expansion. This new model is weatherproof but not submersible, something you’ll discover if you drop it into the toilet.

This wee camera is considerably smaller than the first model and does not have an external USB jack. It also uses a proprietary USB jack, which makes us sad clowns. However, you can also simply pop out the SD card.

The camera records at 720p resolution onto SD and SDHC cards. It will sell for $150 this month and comes in 5 colors. Look for a full review in the next week.
