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...

Kodak Playsport ZX3

 

The Kodak Playsport ZX3 is a pocket camcorder that can take videos and photos underwater. Its small profile allows you to bring it anywhere, while its Full HD capability ensures that you take the best possible video.

Form factor; Build; Waterproof up to 3 metres; Easy to operate; Full HD capabilities; Good video quality; Comes with HDMI out of the box; Attractive price point

Images taken on the camera not suitable for large prints; Battery life; Lacks a couple of shortcut keys (like H2O) that could have made it even easier to use
