Exclamation Flip MINOHD or the Kodak Zi8 - January 14, 2010, 02:36 PM

Ok been checking this out for a min and not sure which one to get.
If you havent heard about either of these, these are pocket sized camcorders, easy to use and good for blogging or short vids.
Cant decide if I want the Flip MINOHD or the Kodak Zi8




Has anyone used either? and what are the pros and cons???

I have the flipHD.. It's pretty cool, but I don't really have much use for it. I've used it on one trip I went on.

main cons that everyone had with it was the shakiness/choppingess of vids and low battery life do you experience that?

Also zoom function isnt that good

Never had an issue with battery life(although, I haven't used it much). It is very sensative to movement, and it has a very small zoom. Here's an example vid I took with it.

:16-:18 is full zoom

I got the Flip as a Christmas gift, and haven't had any problems with shakiness or choppy videos. Maybe you have shaky hands!

Slow: Well, that was a bad idea because jamming the turd back in caused the gas behind it to back up and just about the time I went in for what probably would have been the thrust that got the turd out of my way, the gas exploded. It shot my dick and the turd out like a rocket. Now, if getting your dick explosively expelled from your chick's ass and then getting hit in the gut with a flying turd doesn't make your dick soft, you're a better man than I am.

Got the Flip Mino 60min HD for my dad for christmas and he loves it. REALLY loves it. Ya know you can personalize it with a picture on the front of it. You just upload the picture and they print it right on the camera. Turned out AWESOME.
