Tech Industry: Kodak Playsport

1:22 /

The Kodak Playsport is a camera that can record video and is waterproof in up to 3 meters of water.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Hey, I'm Tom Merritt at CES 2010, taking a look at the Kodak Play Sport, this is a, uh, water camera, it's an HD handheld camera built for one handed operation, as you can see by the buttons right here. That gives you 1080P video, at 30 frames per second, or 720P, you have 60 frames per second, you can also do 30 or VGA with the 720P setting as well. And it's waterproof; it's meant for taking to the pool, to the beach, not meant for scuba diving, it's only waterproof up to three meters. But, you can, uh, start it recording here, and, uh, drop it in the water, this is always fun to do with these sorts of waterproof things, and let it kept recording, go ahead and, uh, pull it out, try not to get my suit jacket wet, there it is, it's still recording. You can see that it still works. It's got a HTMI out on the side here, so that you can, uh, plug it into your television, your high def television and actually show your HD videos there. Also it has a built in blue filter, so if you are shooting underwater and things are a little extra blue , you can pull that haze filter up and actually make the picture look a little better. It's got an SD card slot here, so you can add most of the storage, it's got a little bit of storage on board, but you're probably going to want to have a card there. And, uh, that's it actually, it's a nice rugged waterproof HD camcorder from Kodak called the Play Sport. At CES 2010, I'm Tom Merritt. ^M00:01:22
