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.

Love it.

Product didn't work

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...

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.
