where's that kodak zi8 camcorder?

It's not quite Where's Waldo or Flat Stanley--yet--but I've had a postcard of sorts from my out-for-testing camcorder. A few weeks ago, I sent out the Kodak Zi8 HD Pocket Video Camerato the first of four testers--all university communications shops--so they could compare its features and functionality to other ultralight camcorders like the Flip MinoHD Camcorder. Here's a still shot of the camera in use for an interview with a faculty scientist at Rockefeller University in New York City, sent as a progress report. After a 2-week test in New York, the camera's on its way to Oregon for two weeks of testing.
I had the chance to see my tester's preview footage yesterday, and each tester will be posting footage and impressions on this blog so you can see the camera in action, and hear how it compares to other ultralight camcorders. Feel free to post your questions about this or other ultralight camcorders so our testers can try out your ideas. (Photo by Joe Bonner)
