This time of year is known, perhaps more than any other, for it’s tendency to throw up some amazing memories, and when these special moments arise it’s important that in this day and age you have access to a camera to preserve them. Sometimes, still pictures just won’t do and many people out there still don’t have mobile phone capable of recording video, so why not grab yourself a video camera that just won’t break the bank?
The Kodak Mini Video Camera aims to aid you in filling a void in your memory collection, and whilst it may not provide the best quality video in comparison with the more expensive Flip Mino HD video camera, but the VGA 640×480 is more than suitable for such a relatively cheap pocket-able device that Kodak have put together here.
The rugged, waterproof camera comes from a recognisable brand so will more than likely deliver on it’s promise of being a solid, lightweight video camera that provides decent 3x zoom and 128mb of onboard storage expandable by the customary Micro SD card up to 16GB.
On the face of the camera, you’ll find a 4.6cm LCD panel for instant playback of your videos on the fly, and on top of that there’s a built in, flip-out USB cable for when you get ome and want to store them somewhere a little more organised and secure. Below that you’ll also find some idiot-proof one-touch controls for easy operation, along with some on-screen icons to guide you along the way.
The mini video camera also packs a Li-Polymer battery giving you nigh on an hour and a half battery life under constant usage from a single charge.
So with the Kodak Mini Video Camera setting you back £49.99, it doesn’t seem too bad when you consider the size of the camera is comparable to a credit card, it comes in three colour options; red, blue and graphite, and has instant access to social networks such as Facebook and YouTube gives it an extra dimension so to speak. Then on top of all that, it’s from a top camera brand in the form of Kodak too, which always gives you a sense of reassurance.
