From katiea on October 06, 2009 :: 4:31 pm

DH is hounding me to get a Flip (or equivalent) to capture our son after he’s born.  From everything I’ve read, the Kodak Zi8 is the best of this type of device out there, especially with the remote.  Thanks so much for this awesome giveaway!


From Lysette Davis on October 06, 2009 :: 4:54 pm

Life is so exciting, to have the opportunity to catch it and share it with each other is like imprinting on the world what we have lived.

From Raymond Gray on October 06, 2009 :: 9:02 pm

I have looked and looked and searched for a good portable camera for my fast moving projects.  This camera seems to be on the tongues of so many reviews it has got to have the power needed.  Wish me the best, this would be so good for me.


From Lisa A. on October 06, 2009 :: 9:03 pm

This looks like even a technically-challenged person like myself could figure out how to use it!


From Auriette on October 06, 2009 :: 9:15 pm

I’d love to have an HD video camera and I like that you can also record stills. It’s nice to only have to carry one camera that can do it all.
