ROCHESTER, N.Y.: Kodak kicked it up a notch in the new Zi8 pocket video camcorder. The little handheld captures up to 10 hours of full 1080p HD video images in 16:9. It also sports electronic image stabilization, a feature not typically found on tiny camcorders. The Zi8 has a swing-out USB connection, eliminating the need for a cable, as well as a mini-HDMI out with cable included. It comes in aqua, raspberry and black, and clocks in at $179.95. The Zi8 is on deck to ship next month.
