Kodak PlaySport Zx3 waterproof HD camera review

 

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

Waterproof ; Good price for 1080p ; Well built

Harder to access ports ; No line-in ; Same old video quality

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

 

Does this waterproof video camera reveal hidden depths?

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 goes ruggedly underwater with its latest pocket Internet camcorder. But does it sink or swim?

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,...

Kodak PlaySport Zx3

 

The Kodak Playsport Zx3 is a waterproof (up to 10 feet deep) pocket camcorder that makes excellent videos and photos, though it has one design flaw.

Great still photos; very good video and image quality; waterproof down to 10 feet deep

Button layout often leads to accidental presses

Though the Playsport Zx3 isn’t the easiest camera to use, it does a very good job at performing its main duty: making videos. If you care more about the quality of the videos you want to make than how easy it is to operate the camera you want to...
