Kodak Mini Video Camera review

 

Kodak's Mini is an ultra-budget mini camcorder. High-definition video isn't the order of the day – instead, the camcorder is designed to be slim and light enough to be unnoticeable in a pocket while robust enough to survive knocks – it's also splashproof.

Great for low-light web-quality footage, but the Mini’s dim daytime video counts against it.

Gread camera to have around, at the unexpected moments.

Very Lightweight, small, and very good underwater video

Not very loud playback speaker due to waterproofness

Love it.

 

Ok I bought this thing knowing its not the best camera out there, but it was a cheap water proof camera that I can film hours on hours of video with an 8gb card. I have taken it white water rafting down the Gauley, gone backpacking and tossed it...

Product didn't work

 

Got for my boy for Christmas. Charged, turned on, took a couple pictures. Turned off, never came back on. Don't waste your time.

DOA

 

How ever this company took great care of me.

Not bad for the price

 

This is definitely not a high quality recorder. If you want to record video and take pictures without having to worry about destroying a high priced piece of equipment, then this is a good buy. Used for water adventures. Easy to switch between video...

Consumer review by:

Great for the Price

 

This isn't the best out there but these specs for this price is pretty sweet. The pictures aren't very good quality at all but the video is great! I would definitely recommend this to someone because you can't beat it at this price.

Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality
