Editing H.264 MOV files from Kodak Zi8

I'm interested in adding this trinket to my collection for blog and email video production but I can't find answers on how to edit the 1080p and 720p files it creates. I just had a live chat with Kodak which was unhelpful, including their saying no, there's nowhere to download a sample. Any PC-based, preferably Adobe Premiere CS3 experience would be welcome, but failing CS3 any advice on a working editing tool equally welcome, thanks.

Re: Editing H.264 MOV files from Kodak Zi8

Thanks, Iker. I appreciate knowing that although I wouldn't buy that sophisticated an editor only for this baby cam. I've been a Premiere editor for ten years - too old to switch.

I wonder if anyone has a short clip from the Zi8 that I could download to try the editors I do have?

***EDIT: whoops, it seems my brother took the camera on a trip and he won't be back for another week or so. Sorry about that. I'll still upload a clip when i get the camera.
