Nonprofit Resource: Video Gear for Blogging, Kodak ZI8 Kit

Video is a compelling way to share stories with your donors, supporters and volunteers but it’s often expensive to get started and difficult to grasp. Design for Social GOOD has put together a relatively inexpensive video package that we think will help you to produce high quality video and audio without breaking the bank. It’s a kit that is easy to transport, easy to use and perfect for blogging and posting on YouTubeFacebook or Twitter.

Office Max has the Kodak ZI8 1080p; 5-megapixel; HD pocket video camera for half price, $79.99. It’s the size of a Blackberry and has received rave reviews including this one from CNET. It easily surpases the Flip Video’svideo quality and feature set.

We recommend you add the following accessories:

Kodak 1736933 Zi8 Silicon Sleeve (Black)

Flexible Gripster Camera Tripod 

Audio Technica ATR-3350 LavalierOmnidirectional Condenser Microphone

Kodak Zi8 0.45x Wide Angle With Macro (Modification Style) Magnetic Lens + Cronies Micro-Fiber Cleaning Cloth

The video camera comes with a rechargable battery and all the cables and accessories you’ll need. We highly recommend this set up and we think you’ll be very happy as well!
