The Kodak Zi6 does up the ante for video quality amongst YouTube-oriented camcorders, at least in the majority of lighting conditions. But the question is, if you're aiming at YouTube, do you need HD anyway? Fortunately, you don't pay much of a premium for it over the Flip or Vado, although you will need to shell out for an SDHC card straight away. For simple capturing of family moments, however, the Zi6 does a competent job. So if you're not just shooting for YouTube, the extra resolution swings things in its favour over the competition, although video hobbyists need not apply.
