I think that the man in the photograph needs to wear another color besides blue. It makes him look like a Smurf. I’m really sorry about that.

From Tricia Jorke on October 02, 2009 :: 5:03 am

Oh,my goodness!  I would love to own this video camera.  Although I have 6 kids, I do not own anything close to this. We love Kodak,too.  Usually, we use those cameras in which after each picture,you have to advance the film, which makes that sound so everyone knows your out of date. This would be so awesome.  I love the color too.  It’s beautiful! Small. I would love to win it.  Thank you for the chance.


From Tonya Hartsuiker on October 02, 2009 :: 5:17 am

I love this camera! It would be perfect! wink


From JP on October 02, 2009 :: 8:08 pm

I can think of many uses for this camera, both for business and pleasure.  It’s truly amazing how far camcorders (video cameras) have come. 

Once upon a time for those of us from the dinosaur age (the 1980’s)—we were required to use cameras so big that they had to balance on ones shoulder just to lift and carry around.  No cd’s or dvd’s to burn the video onto—we had to use big clunky vhs tapes. 

Ahhh…the youtube age, it will be something to see what we use in the next 20 yrs!!!


From Nancy V on October 02, 2009 :: 8:38 pm

What a great prize. I would love to have this to take movies of my grand kids. Thanks


From Tina on October 02, 2009 :: 10:40 pm

The latest in modern electronic technology,
this new toy would be practical when I am
travelling to keep in my journal travel file,
and also to send to others who share a common interest.  I would like to win alright.


From Steven Cohen on October 03, 2009 :: 9:04 am
