    Default Zi8 any good? You decide!

    Been messing about with a couple of Kodak Zi8s for the last couple of weeks. Is it any good?



    For 100 I think its brilliant, see what you think.

    On the skate vid it was very dark and grainy so applied noise reduction to rightside. As it explains in the description once compressed by youtube it ends up making no real difference.

    Looked like a fun evening out. Well put together piece. AND for a camera that costs 100 it's good quality images. Tell me you used a tripod or I'll be eternally jealous of such a steady hand.

    All handheld, but it does have electronic stabiliser which works quite well as long as you don't zoom, then it becomes useless.

    Impressive quality. Both the camera and your skills.
    The shot that did it for me was the ice cream at 0:34. Beautiful!
