equipment: January 2011 Archives
We’ve been keeping an eye on the January sales, and so far the best deals we’ve seen are:
- Flip Mino 2 HD camcorder, £99.99 from Jacobs Digital (other prices via Google shopping).
- Kodak Zi8, £75.89 from Amazon (other prices via Google Shopping).
Of the two, we prefer the Zi8 — it has a wider-angle lens, a close-up mode, and a microphone jack. However, the Flip Mino is dinkier, which has to count for something. Oooh, but then the Zi8 comes in different colours… only, you have to spend another £15 on an SDHC card for it… decisions, decision.
Actually, the camera of this type that we really want to try out is the new Zoom Q3HD — perhaps not quite as good a camera, but the microphones are likely to be stunningly fabulous. Prices from about £200.
