The new Kodak Zi8 HD camcorder is totally not competing against the Flip Mino HD. In no way do they look the same in terms of design and usability, especially with the, easy one-button approach to taking videos. Like the Flip Mino HD, the Hi8 HD has 1080p recording, YouTube uploading support, and an SD card slot. However, it also has face tracking, image stabilization (don’t you just hate those shaky amateur videos?), a 2.5-inch LCD display, and Facebook uploading support. I think Kodak is the only competitor the Flip’s makers should be worried about because the Zi8’s features are so similar, and they’re only selling for $180 a pop (the Mino costs $299). Watch out for the Kodak Zi8 in September, in blue, black, and red.
