Yesterday I visited the first annual South Shore Outdoor expo here in Apollobeach, Fl. to check things out.
I decided to take with me the Kodak Zi8. This a vlog type camera that right now runs about the $120.00. They use to go for about $180 last year. It has the 1080p video along with the 5mp stills just like the Kodak Playsport but it is not waterproof. However this thing does have things the Playsport does not have. It has a micro phone input for better audio. It also has a “macro” mode switch so when you get close to a subject, you can still focus. This is great for product shots and close ups. I will be using this more when I do things indoors.
Here are some 5MP stills I got from the show yesterday. Unedited just re sized to fit the web.
Sunday is the final day. Here is more details and link to the map if you are interested in checking it out today.
