Comparing the video output from the Panasonic FX37, Sony Webbie HD, Kodak Zi6, and Flip mino HD Camera using a Test Rig I put together.
The Sony Webbie has a neat swivel lens AND records 1080p.
The Kodak Zi6 has benefits too like removable batteries and storage.
The Flip FlipShare software is great for newbies too. It depends on your level of expertise.
I like the Panasonic FX37 best. Love the wide angle lens.
