    Flip or Kodak Zi8?
    Hi everyone question to those in the know...

    I'm in the market for a HD video recorder of some kind. I think for most the Flip is the "go-to" brand however i see that Kodak has a zi8 that has up to 1080p.

    I also hear the kodak zi8 has packaged software that does not support Mac? Do i really need the packaged software?

    Is there free software for Mac that enables a newbie to do simple edits?

    Thanks!

    No, you do not need the packaged software. You have iMovie, which puts you FAR ahead of PC losers.

    Excellent, good to know. I saw a review on Cnet that suggested not having the packaged software might lead to a degraded file? Didn't seem right.

    C|Net is not a reliable source for anything to do with Macs. I don't know if they happen to be correct on this point or not, but I wouldn't trust it if that's your only source for that info.
