Great price for a decent hi-def (720p) video camera that's weather resistant. It's been on here a few times at various prices and colours (last one posted was 2p cheaper but was in Pink only), but Amazon have all colours (Black, Yellow, Red, Pink) in stock at the same price.

It's also got built-in HDMI for quick connectivity to a HDTV.

Shoots 720p high definition video
Pocket-Size, weather-resistant design
Storage 128 MB internal memory with SD/SDHC card expansion lot
Easily edit, create and upload to YouTube with built-in software
Record direct to SD/SDHC memory card (approx 20 min. recording per 1 GB at HD 30 fps).

small google search for reviews reveals similar and sometimes insignificantly lesser price for this model of HD Cam.But overall this camera is good only if you are planning to shoot outdoor daylight conditions.Anything similar to filming a cityscape at night even is bound to end in disappointment..Anyway cheers for those who view this deal favorably...:thumbsup:

Yeah a guy at work picked one of theseup a week or so ago, not a bad littlebit of kit for every day filming, size is akin to a mobile phone circi 1990's so quite compact - good deal for a gadget

Did a quick check on Google, can't see any less than £47.99 (both web and shopping search).

There's plenty of videos on Youtube where the Zx1 has been used at night and the results are actually pretty good, although it can't really be compared to a higher-end camera with built in light. There's more noise (bound to be) but it's useable.

They are ALL crap in this respect, at least this is a 3rd of the price my friend paid to be dismally disappointed!

Performance from videos YouTube stuff seems little different, so for that reason it is hot, but I wouldn't buy one at all unless I was wanting it for outdoor bright daylught use only - I want one I can use for videos of family/kids/friends/pets at indoor events or functions, and they don't exist for anything like this sort of money :-(

Just ordered and is now with free Silicon Case - glad I hung on til after the weekend!!!

Anyone know how to keep the hd 30 say recording, but make a copy in the , vga mode for posting up to youtube, f.book, etc ????.....as it takes ages just to upload a 2 min video.....?......thanks, martyn
