Kodak PlayFull Ze1

 

Ideal for a young child or those who don't want expensive equipment just to record videos.

Extraordinarily compact; Good low light results for its class

Terrible color and “white balance”:; No manual controls whatever

Kodak Playfull ZE2 review

 

A low-risk option for water-based stills or video

I like all of the features of this camera, as well as the value of the overall package. The only drawback is the small size of the menu button. If you have average or large fingers, it's a little tricky to scroll through the menu with this button....
