New HD video camera coming from Kodak

As we mentioned earlier this morning, Kodak plans to unveil a couple new devices at CES.  One of those is the Zx1 camcorder, the apparent follow-up to the Zi6.  We have some more news on the device, available after the jump.

As far as technical specs go, the Zx1 captures video in 720p at 60 fps and features on-board editing, direct uploading to various video sharing sites and up to 32 GB (10 hrs) of storage via SDHC card.  The display is 2 inches and the unit itself is entirely weather-resistant.  It seems built to take a little bit of punishment, perfect for those who fear damaging a more expensive,  more vulnerable camcorder.

There’s no solid release date for the Zi6 yet, but that might change once the device is actually showcased at CES.  The camcorder is expected to cost around $150.
