Kodak Playfull Video Camera

 

Good video quality. Easy video-sharing options. Captures 5-megapixel still images

Uncomfortably small body. Too-tiny screen. Difficult-to-access ports and USB arm. Slow

The Kodak Playfull Video Camera is a pocket-sized camcorder that offers good image and video quality, but its tiny stature actually hurts more than it helps.

Kodak PlayFull HD Video Camera review: Kodak PlayFull HD Video Camera

 

With the Playfull in Kodak's minicamcorder lineup, it has a model for just about every type of user. Compared with its linemates, the rugged PlaySport and feature-filled PlayTouch , it is stripped-down, but you still get full HD-resolution movie and...

The Kodak Playfull produces very good video quality for its price and size, is easy to use, and has good editing and sharing software.

Its screen might be too small for some users, the lens is fixed-focus, there's no flash or video light, and the battery can't be removed.

The Kodak Playfull minicamcorder is a pocketful of video fun, but it might be just too "mini" for some.

Kodak PlayFull Ze1Camcorder Review

 

The Kodak PlayFull Ze1 is a tiny camcorder with the ability to record Full HD 1080p video. In addition to being one of the smallest camcorders we've ever reviewed, the PlayFull's $129 price tag also makes it one of the cheapest. Don't expect much in...

Is The Kodak Playfull Worth The Money?

 

The Kodak Playfull video camera is Kodak's smallest camcorder to hit the market yet. This article will discuss the video quality, features, and design of the video camera. Find out if the Playfull is worth the money, or just another camera to pass over.

My final verdict would have to be that the Kodak Playfull was not by all means the best pocket camcorder to hit the market. Kodak tried to cash in on having the smallest camera available, but it happens to be that it is not a good feature at all....

Kodak PlayFull Review

 

The whole point of a pocket camcorder is to be affordable, easy to use, and compact, and the Kodak PlayFull hits it out of the park in this sense. It retails at $150 (about the same as the competition), it's incredibly simple to operate, and, even for...

Kodak Playfull Dual camera pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

We at Pocket-lint have a theory that, at electronic trade shows, you could decipher just how badly a company wants to impress the attendees by the thickness

Kodak Playfull - Pocket-lint

 

With Flip now out of business, Kodak has found itself in a rather rare situation as far as the company in the current age goes. For pocket camcorders,

Small, light, good looking video footage

Clunky buttons, unnecessary software load, tiny screen

Very few pocket camcorders have got it bang on which, in some ways, makes the Kodak Playfull’s shortcomings forgivable. The size and simplicity are right even if the £129.99 price tag is around £29.99 too dear. The key plus point, fortunately, is the...

Kodak Playfull

 

The Playfull produces good HD video and still images despite its tiny packaging. It's made even more appealing by its reasonable asking price.

Built-in USB connector ; Stylish and compact

Tiny LCD screen ; No autofocus

The Playfull produces good HD video and still images. Provided you don't mind its tiny screen and mini form factor, the Playfull is definitely worth its AU$200 price.

Kodak PlayFull

 

Slim profile and attached USB makes for quick and easy videos that you can throw straight onto Facebook, though the smartphone sitting in your front pocket is a big contender.

Small, light build; simple, convenient connectivity

Poor low-light performance; High noise below medium lighting conditions; no flash

Really good buy

 

My first pocket camcorder purchase. Very easy to use and the results are good, picture quality on the computer is excellant. A few people have asked to try it out and i'm sure some will buy the same or similar camera.
