We have plenty of gripes with the current crop of pocket cameras, most of them to do with image quality: grainy footage, poor (laughable) low-light performance...

Kodak Playsport Zx3

 

Tough construction and surprisingly strong video testing may spell trouble for competitors

Sharp for an ultracompact; Good low light performance

Dismal color in bright light; Lots of motion issues

Kodak PlaySport Zx3

 

The Kodak PlaySport Zx5 is a rugged, portable mini camcorder that can record 1080p high-definition quality video and take 5-megapixel images. It has very good video quality and is easy to use, but it doesn't have a flash or light.<p

Kodak PlaySport Zx3 camcorder

 

Digital camcorders recording to solid-state media, which has enabled them to shrink to a size similar to your phone handset, may be all the rage, but this one is a little different. This affordable and portable palm camcorder from Kodak strikes the...

Cool design, lightweight and compact, HDMI connectivity offered alongside AV and USB out, Memory expandable via (optional) SD or SDHC cards

This affordable and portable palm camcorder from Kodak strikes the right notes, but there is already fierce competition out there from other pocket offerings in the Creative Vado HD, Flip MinoHD et al. However in Kodak's favour the build quality feels...

Kodak PlaySport Zx3 review

 

As the name suggests, the Kodak PlaySport Zx3 is a ruggedised camcorder that is geared up for outward bound pursuits.

When playing back our underwater footage fresh from the tank as the Kodak PlaySport Zx3’s innards seemed to be working rather hard, but this and the sluggish zoom were our only real negatives. A great little camcorder to take on a trip to the beach,...
