I’m about to start an extensive test of the new Kodak Zi8 which is due out next month. From my first tests this is a huge improvement on the Zi6 and perfect for my video recordings here on FR. One feature I love is the mic input with adjustable record level… this is huge as most internal mics are Mono and a bit noisy to say the least… so I got a little carried away.
Here is the rig I made using existing parts- a nice setup as I get a 90 degree and 120 degree stereo recording that when matched to the visual is a nice small package. My more in-depth review will be in a week or two but all videos from here on will be recorded on this setup… with and without the rather (ahem) phallic mic.
