Remember that great little pocket camcorder that Kodak announced a little while back, it was the 720p capable Zi6, well its now available for pre-order. The pricing remained at the originally announced $179.95, and although there is no specific mention of when it will begin shipping, they are offering free shipping if you place your order before August 25. Hopefully it will ship sometime soon after.
The Kodak Zi6 should offer some nice competition to the current leader in the pocket camcorder market, which as we recently learned is the Flip Video Ultra that just hit the 1 million units sold mark. The Kodak Zi6 is similar in shape and size, but has a much nicer video quality, it will capture in HD quality at 720p.
Otherwise, just to recap, the Zi6 also features a 2.4-inch LCD display, built-in USB connector, 128MB of internal memory and a SD/SDHC memory card slot for additional recording capability. Similar to the other camcorders in its class, the Zi6 also has direct upload capability to YouTube. It is powered by two AA batteries, and also ships with two pre-charged Kodak Ni-MH rechargeable batteries and a mini charger kit. The Zi6 will be available in either black or pink.
