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.
