This looks like such a great camera.  I don’t have a video camera, due in part to the typically large and or heavy size.  I could carry this in my purse for all those unexpected moments!


From SheilaBee on September 23, 2009 :: 1:30 pm

My old camcorder died a long time ago and I never found the funds to replace it so I would love to win this one. My parents are getting older and I would love to have videos of family events.

Sounds like a wonderful camera-I would love to have one, considering that I have no camera, of any kind. This would be a great one to have.

looks great to use


From Sue E on September 23, 2009 :: 4:56 pm

My son participates in all kinds of sports and I would love to record him in action. With a toddler in the house I have to take along a diaper bag full of stuff, so a video camera gets overlooked.  This one wouldn’t take up any valuable space.  Thanks for the chance!


From Bryan on September 23, 2009 :: 4:59 pm

Wow nice giveaway!  I wasn’t aware that Kodak made pocket video cameras.  Looks like a nice one.
