The good: Excellent video for its class; waterproof to 10 feet; HDMI cable included; very good sharing software.
The bad: No built-in USB connector; short battery life at highest resolution; no memory card; sharing software is Windows only.
The bottom line: The Kodak Playsport is an excellent minicamcorder that can take some rough treatment and capture solid HD video.
Kodak synonomous with junk and low-quality electronics
by digiwhore on July 7, 2010
Pros: Cheap alternative and just a small step above camera phones for recording videos.
Cons: Very crude user interface; need to look up manual on how to really use the limited number of buttons. My unit actually broke after taking videos and not even being submerged - this says it all in terms of Kodak quality.
Summary: When are they going to stop putting miniature 4-way and center select user button control interface? Got to be the worst user controller invention ever. Looking at the flimsy design, ...
Summary: When are they going to stop putting miniature 4-way and center select user button control interface? Got to be the worst user controller invention ever. Looking at the flimsy design, I don't think the unit is capable of keeping out water as stated so I wouldn't even try.
Reading other reviews, i thought kodak may be onto something, but my quickly broken unit quickly dismissed that hope. Stick with Japanese Canon, Nikon brands and you won't likely be disappointed.

Worst review ever...
by ianbang on June 2, 2010
Pros: Please re-do your review, it's all over the net about how the Playsport has worse low light capabilities than the Zi8
Cons: but also how this camera captures a larger field of view than the Zi8, please compare these features so I can make a decision on which camera I will buy.

Summary: I bought one at Sam's Club for my son's birthday. When we opened it we found the battery cover broken, the screen was highly scratched still tried to charge it but found the battery was dead needed a replacement.
It could be that Sam's Club is selling poorly reburbished Camera/s as new camera's. We're not happy now need to jump through all the replacement loops to get this resolved.
