Months ago Kodak announced that it was discontinuing its digital video to focus on “significant opportunities for profitable growth”. Three years ago I picked up the little Kodak Zi6 (pronounced Zix) for the kids for Christmas. It is an HD pocket video camera with a nice 3” LCD all built into a something a bit longer than an deck of cards. It is low tech and great! The kids have had a ball with it, and for around $100 it was perfect. It comes with 2 AA rechargeable batteries and the recharger. You can add an SD card, but don’t need to, and the USB is not a cable but a pop-out dongle so everything is right in the one package.
Too many companies look for the next big thing and fail to see the stuff that is good enough, and right in front of their eyes.
