Kodak PlaySport Zx5

 

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
