Default Kodak zi8 vs iPhone 4 video quality

Has anybody compared the video quality of the iPhone 4's camera to the kodak zi8 or zi6?

I want a better camera for taking car audio related videos, one that will pick up flex, etc. Currently I only have my iPhone 3Gs, and while it takes good vids, it just doesn't pick up flex well at all. I've been eligible since June to upgrade to the iPhone 4, and the only reason I want to is for the better camera (records in 720p) but lately I've been looking into the kodak zi8, I know a few people on here use it and it has great reviews. And I could pick one up for less then $150, versus $200 to upgrade my phone. The only advantage of going the phone route is convienence.

So what do y'all think? iPhone 4 or the zi8?

Yup I'm in the same position. I use my 3GS and considered both those options. Hopefully a few people reply. I think I seen on YouTube a few video comparisons tho.

I never adjusted my mic so this is on edited. I have 3 different mic positions on the phone itself. Gotta love the Droid X. I think it picked up flex pretty good
