TechCrunch Friday Giveaway: Kodak Zi8, The Flip Killer #crunch

Our last Friday Giveaway was a Sonos S5 Wireless Music System. This week Kodak was kind enough to hand us a Zi8 pocket video camera, and one of you is going to have it in your hands shortly.

CrunchGear’s overview of the Zi8 is here. This is a Flip-like picked video camera that records in 1080p high definition. The device includes a SD/SDHC card slot for expandable storage. And the best feature is this – the Zi8 has an external microphone jack to help get decent audio into the device. Poor audio has plagued the Flip cameras.

Here’s how you can get the device. Just do one of two things: either retweet this post, and make sure to include the #crunch hashtag, or leave a comment below telling us why this device must be yours. The contest ends at noon California time on Saturday. Please only tweet the message once, anyone tweeting repeatedly will be disqualified. We’ll pick a winner tomorrow afternoon and contact you for more details. Anyone in the world is eligible. Kodak is generously donating the device and we’re covering the shipping costs. If you aren’t lucky enough to get the free one, you can buy the Zi8 for $177 here.

Update: Congratulations to Ron for winning the Zi8 with his tweet! We’ll be doing more TechCrunch Giveaways!
