I love this Zi8 and I’m glad the remote is included. I lost my camcorder at a zoo…my fault, I put in down for a few minutes. This would be great to have! Thanks!

From Nina on September 23, 2009 :: 10:28 pm

From Jonathan Davis on September 23, 2009 :: 10:32 pm

Wow I would love a video camera.


From Charles on September 23, 2009 :: 10:34 pm

Would be a vast improvement over my old miniDV camcorder!


From Alan on September 23, 2009 :: 11:19 pm

This looks like a really exciting camera.


From Mike C on September 23, 2009 :: 11:45 pm

So, I just saw U2 in Toronto not too long ago. I’m a huge fan and was super excited for the show. However, my pictures came out horrible because my camera is just awful. I need a new one so badly. If I had this at the show I would’ve been so happy. Is it possible to go back in time?


From Jeff on September 23, 2009 :: 11:55 pm

You perform a fantastic service!  I am often lost with the sheer volume of reviews out there.  Yours I believe.

I will make the bold, sweeping promise that if I am selected, I will report back on how well the camera works with Ubuntu.

thanks & keep up the good work


From Estelle on September 24, 2009 :: 12:00 am

I have a Kodak digital camera. I love it, it’s very reliable and durable.


From Ralph Bostic on September 24, 2009 :: 12:00 am

From Shelbie Johnston on September 24, 2009 :: 12:04 am

From Allison Wilson on September 24, 2009 :: 1:31 am

Thanks for having such a great giveaway!


From Bill on September 24, 2009 :: 4:23 am

It would be a definite upgrade to my old Flip camera.


From Robert May on September 24, 2009 :: 5:45 am

I’ve been without a camera for a long time. Afraid to buy one ever since my wife’s camera bit the dust shortly after the warranty expired (it was NOT a Kodak camera). This one looks real nice. Looks well thought out and practical.


From Emmi on September 24, 2009 :: 6:05 am

Fingers crossed


From david basile on September 24, 2009 :: 7:11 am

always wanted a pocket video dont need all the extra baggage


From Robert Cilano on September 24, 2009 :: 7:17 am

Our video camera is a dinosaur compared to this thing.  Digital 8 tapes sounded nice at the time, now finding media is next to impossible.


From Heather S on September 24, 2009 :: 7:41 am

I really want a video camera so this would be great!


From Cyrus Bryant on September 24, 2009 :: 7:55 am

I will use this device to record speeding cars on our 35 MPH limit country road.


From Lesha on September 24, 2009 :: 7:56 am

I want to be able to capture all the beautiful things that are part of my life.  My little 13 year old dog sleeping soundly at my feet.  My niece who is 15 going on 30 trying to figure out just where she fits in in the world and capture the sun going down behind the Smokie Mountains where I am blessed to call my home.


From Karla K. on September 24, 2009 :: 8:08 am

This camera would be so easy to take places.


From JSiegel on September 24, 2009 :: 8:18 am

Nice small camera.


From Donald Bishop on September 24, 2009 :: 8:56 am

My daughter has been hounding us for one of these puppies!


From Laura on September 24, 2009 :: 9:15 am

We don’t have a video camera and I am really intrigued by these pocket-size ones that aren’t over the top expensive.


From amber on September 24, 2009 :: 9:29 am

Ooh this would be awesome to take on vacation! Thanks smile


From sara marcy on September 24, 2009 :: 9:36 am

From Brittaney on September 24, 2009 :: 10:24 am

it would be great to have a video camera


From Denise B. on September 24, 2009 :: 10:55 am

I like that you can download directly to Facebook.


From Heidi Gail on September 24, 2009 :: 11:42 am

What a nifty video camera! It’s a far cry from the 5 lb ones that we use to have to choose from.


From Heather on September 24, 2009 :: 12:19 pm

This looks so cool!  I would use this all the time.


From Gena on September 24, 2009 :: 12:32 pm

This is so cool! I have never owned any camcorder ever


From Katherine D on September 24, 2009 :: 12:32 pm

It’s gorgeous! Happened upon this googling for an HD video camera - raspberry is my favorite color too!
