Advantages: Cute colour choice, The sound and colour lcd screen both fantastic, Focus is also great. Cheap
I asked santa last christmas for a video camera mainly for using online for facebook. I have a lot of family over seas and they just love to look at recent photos of my children. My daughter had been Mary in a christmas play and brought tears to my eyes that my mum had not been with me to see her. I also enjoy nature walks with my oldest son and often kick myself that we missed a photo or video camera of the deer that passed by. Santa got me a perfect video camera in the form of the Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera.
Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera costs around £30-£50 worth keeping an eye on Amazon uk as often on special.
Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera comes in a yellow Kodak box that's small and compact, you can see the size of the camera through the clear packaging window on the box. You can get the Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera in different colours, i got the electric blue colour looks very cool.
The only things in the box was the pocket camera, a wrist strap and instructions. I found the instructions easy to read and follow not overly complicated.
Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera is tiny measuring roughly 7cm tall and 4cm wide. Its very lightweight weighing on 73g. Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera has a metal shell an in my case its blue in colour has a small lcd colour screen roughly 3cm wide and 4cm long. The lcd screen is very clear and picks up colours well.
The buttons for the video camera are on the front under the screen these are laid out well and kept simple as this camera is perfect for older kids and teenagers.
On the back of the camera is the F2.4 lens.
What i really like about the Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera is the pop out usb charger. It has a little rubber flap that peals back and the usb connector comes out and the camera can be plugged into the computer or laptop. When plugged into the computer it takes one hour to fully charge the battery from flat. I can record up to five hours on the camera before the batteriy goes flat again.
Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera has a built in memory of 120mb this is perfect for my use although it does have a sd card slot if you wish to add extra memory, it can take an sd card up to 34mg.
Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera is waterproof up to 3 meters although i have not tested this fully out yet but have played about in the skin recording my fingers and hands boring but wanted to check it.
Using the camera is straight forward, there is a small button in the middle pushing this in starts the recording each button has a small symbol to show what it does for instance the bin sign is for deleting the video. You can slide through all the video recordings. This is ideal for using on facebook and youtube its even advertised on the box because the camera simply connects via the built in usb charger and you can open the files on the computer and just upload them straight onto youtube or facebook. The files save like picture folders onto my documents as there are no disks or software to upload.
Kodak Zm1 pocket video camera is compatible with all windows, mac and linux. I have had so much fun with the camera from my two year old singing twinkle twinkle like a pro to my son pointing out the owl in the tree like a mini David attenborough. The sound it picks up is amazing, very clear and hardly any interference, picture quality and focus is also amazing for such a small piece of equipment.
If you need a simple video camera with a visually clear coloured screen and crystal clear mic sound then this is for you.
Summary: 5 dooyoo stars from me
