How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Reviewed.com Camcorders says:

The Zi8 definitely represents an improvement for Kodak, but the camcorder was a disappointment overall. Even with its larger sensor, increased pixel count, and Full HD video recording, the Zi8 managed a lackluster performance in most of our video tests.
