The Kodak Zx1 can't match the bare-bones simplicity of the Flip UltraHD or the rest of the Flip line of camcorders. Even so, the Zx1 has quite a bit going for it. It feels good in the hand, it doesn't succumb to a gimmicky USB-arm design, and it runs on regular AA batteries. It also records to removable SD/SDHC memory cards, which is a treat for anyone who already has a stockpile of them lying around. All this, along with the camcorder's $150 price tag, make it a compelling choice for a low-end pocket-camcorder. quote

While its video quality doesn't quite match up to that of the Flip Video MinoHD, the Kodak Zx1 does win points for its stylish, rugged design.

Kodak's Zx1 is a good performer at a reasonable price ($149), and uses inexpensive SD media to store its video or 5MP still photographs (which this device can capture in addition to video).

Kodak’s weather-resistant Zx1 is the sleekest pocket camcorder we’ve seen lately. And the size, video quality, and $149 price tag will be a good match for some people. However, if budget permits and you don’t mind carrying a larger device, the video clips from the $159 Zi6 were better.

Overall we like the Kodak Zx1. The extra size means it isn't quite as slick as others on the market, but we really like the flexibility on offer here. ... battery life ceases to be an issue because you can always grab some extra batteries and throw them in.

The Zx1 is a worthy entry into the pocket camcorder field and is especially nice for outdoor enthusiasts. If you steer clear of the still photos and spend some extra cash on a high capacity memory card, you won’t be disappointed.

Kodak has done an admirable job with the Zx1; it's a (now) very affordable pocket camcorder with good quality video and removable storage. Daylight images have great detail for such a small camera. Videos taken in lower light conditions are a little grainy and laggy, but much better that I...
