Kodak PlaySport Zx5
Hey, I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor with CNET and this is a look at the Kodak Playsport Zx5.
This is the company's 3rd go round with the rugged, pocket video camera each time making it more durable.
2010 Zx3 was waterproof and dustproof.
This one is waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof.
It doesn't mean that's indestructible but it can handle more abuse than a regular minicamcorder.
Now, aside from that, it's pretty much a typical minicamcorder.
Things I like are the autofocus lens, easy to use controls, and simple menu layout, and extras like Kodak's Glare Shield for better screen visibility and very good sharing options.
Things I don't like are the non-removable battery and there is no swing-out USB arm.
So, you'll always need a cable for sharing and charging.
Video quality isn't perfect
but still very good for this type of device and when you add in its ruggedness, you've got a pretty sweet deal for a quickly and easily capturing movie clips in less than ideal conditions for electronics.
I'm Josh Goldman and that's a look at the Kodak Playsport Zx5.
