REVIEW: Kodak PlaySport Takes Sexy Shots And A Beating


Can rivals get any more rugged that Kodak's Playsport Zx5? It's dustproof, waterproof and shockproof but how will it stand up to being treated rough?

Waterproof to 3m; Withstands drop from 1.5m; Full HD shooting ;

No built-in memory; Fixed battery; No backlight compensation setting
