One correction and some extra details: in the review I say 128MB internal memory lasted 27 seconds on VGA mode - I should have said HD mode. VGA mode lasts just shy of 8 minutes.
The USB plug is a little flicky outty one on the side, and when it's plugged into your pooter's USB port, it feels really loose and a little unsure of itself. It does the trick so all is well, but you'll need to rest your camcorder on something solid when it's connected to your lap- or desktop.
Also, films are .mov files, and for that you need Quick Time. Why it's compatible with that instead of something like Real Player is a bit of a wonderingment, but there you have it. If Quick Time isn't already installed, the camcorder's wizard will install it for you, which is great. Just be aware that that's even more memory you're using on your computer.
Truth be told, I was jonesing for a Flip
, but that's severely limited with its memory. The Kodak allows you to use an SDHC card of up to 32GB which is *massive*. This 5-odd minute file, by the way, in VGA mode (lowest quality, but still absolutely clear) is 71.3MB so my 8GB memory card will last roughly *pause for frantic, possibly incorrect maths* 9 hours. 9 hours! That puts the Flip's 2hr maximum (for the most expensive one) into perspective. That you can use AA batteries is also an enormous bonus. That it's as pretty as it is is another bonus. All of which combined means it leaves the Flip for dust.
So, really, it is highly and wonderfully recommended if you're looking for a camcorder. And if you're not.
