A good product that falls short of greatness.

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 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.
