Kodak kicked out a new pocket sized camcorder today, the Zi8.  Unlike the previous iterations of the Kodak Z series camcorder, the Zi8 captures 1080p video and 5 megapixel stills.  It’s also got an SD card slot, 2.5-inch LCD, face recognition software and electronic image stabilization, a feature we haven’t seen in a camcorder of this form factor before.  With Samsung’s offering on the way and now this, Flip is starting to look a bit soggy.

Expect the Kodak Zi8 to hit store shelves this September for $179.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
