Best camcorder if you're on a budget and need external mic input, August 22, 2009 By Derrick A. Jeror (Corning, NY USA) (REAL NAME) Check out my sample footage video on Youtube. On Youtube search "djeror zi8 low light" In my previous review of the Kodak Zi8 I was pretty frustrated at the fact that whenever I used the built in microphone the recorded videos had an annoying high pitch whine that made the audio from my videos almost unusable. Kodak recognized that this was an issue and created a firmware update that fixed the problem. It also fixed a few other things like the previous issue of the image getting darker as you zoomed in. They seem to have fixed all of the major problems with this firmware fix. 5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent video quality for money had a long debate on which camera to buy Flip Ultra HD or Zi8 and finally I decided on Zi8 and I am happy with my decision. Published 19 days ago by Kumar Veetrag 4.0 out of 5 stars Cool Video Camera The Zi8 is a very easy to use video camera. The HDMI output connects straight into my 1080p TV and the video picture is great. Published 19 days ago by P. Angel
