I would love to win one of these !! 

It would be great for our business.


From Melissa James on October 06, 2009 :: 8:56 am

What a nice camera!!!  I would love to have this!!


From Sherry D on October 06, 2009 :: 9:08 am

I would love to win this awesome camera. Our much bigger and outdated (don’t even sell tapes for it anymore)video camera has been shelved since we ran out of our own stock of tapes. Would love to be able to capture those fleeting special moments with the kids and other loved ones. We’ve missed capturing so many memories over the past few years without a camera and my own memory isn’t that great anymore.

Thanks for the opportunity to win and for the great site, I will be passing the link onto my techy hubby.

OH, and I subscribed!

I own 2 Kodak digital cameras and they are wonderful!  They are easy to use and we always end up with amazing images!  But, we do not have any way to take videos of our 3 young children and I have been wanting a video camera that is easy to use and will create entertaining videos of our kids so we can share them with both sets of grandparents who live out of state.  I know this Kodak Zi8 is the perfect video camera for us, and I think all the features that is offers is fantastic.  Kodak always designs its products so they are easy to use, set up nicely so you don’t have to be a technological guru to be able to use them and they are made to stand the test of time, you can use them over and over and over again and they will continue to perform for you!

I also love that the color is vibrant raspberry, especially since we are celebrating Pink this month because of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Pink represents courage, strength and determination to me because of friends of mine who have struggled with this disease so I would be proud to use this camera in its glorious vibrant raspberry color as a conversation piece while I am using to remind those that I love who are around me the importance of always having the courage, strength and determination to overcome any obstacles that cross your path in life, no matter how big they may appear to be at the time!

Thanks so much for the chance to enter.
