Love this little waterproof camera. Easy to use and stands up well in harsh ocean waters. Use it often on kayak expeditions.

Great Camera, well built, good video, buy an extra battery
I have found that the playsport is everything I need in a video camera. I would ignore the critics that harp on the video quality, it is very good. The 720p 60fps setting is best for action and the 1080p is best for clarity. The underwater abilities are great and for the price who can complain about recording in High Def underwater! The only downfall is the battery which so far for me has lasted only about an hour. I have ordered the charger and extra battery off Amazon since I can not find it on ebay for the same price. We also own a Flip, the Playsports screen is bigger. The Flip has better low light performance and battery life though. The Flip does not use proprietary batteries like the Playsport, it uses AA's which I think is better. The Playsport uses SDHC/SD cards that go up to 32gb which I think is better than the Flip's on-board memory. The Playsport is also thinner than the Flip making it very easy to slip in a pocket. The Playsport feels very rugged and actually very dense for its size. Supposedly it is pretty rugged but I would not put that to the test on purpose! I purchased this so that I could take a camera on the beach, boat or pool and not have to constantly protect it from the elements. It is nice to be able to free yourself from the concern of destroying your camera with water and just have fun in the water. I would highly recommend this camera but beware of the battery...
EDIT 08/12- I took this camera to Mexico and I knocked open the battery door causing it to fill with water. The instructions say to open it and let it dry out, which I did. I am an electrician and pictured in my head capacitors popping and resistors burning as water rushed across them. Remarkably the camera dried out and is back to full working order! I am not sure if the circuit board has any additional protectant coatings but this is a very robust piece of electronics.Read full review

Good Camera For Price.
This camera has good features and design, but don't expect too much out of it. the video is good quality but a bit grainy. The mic isn't very good unless in a quiet area. It feels good in the hand and can me put on a tripod. But aside from the drawbacks this is still an underwater HD camera and for the price you cant get much better. Also don't expect amazing still pictures, this is an action/sport camera to catch events on the fly.

Worth the money! Captured memories we wouldn't have had otherwise :)
I purchased this camera for a trip to Disney World. It was VERY easy to use and did a great job capturing video that I would've otherwise missed out on. Since it was such a great deal ($40) I took it on all of the rides. It captured my daughter's face her first time on Splash Mountain, Tower of Terror and Expedition Everest. My husband and I went parasailing and I was able to take pictures & video from 450 feet up in the sky. If I dropped it, I wasn't too worried about losing it but I didn't so we have all of these great videos to remember our trip by. The battery does not last long so I still had another camcorder along but this worked well for short periods of time.

Excellent waterproof camera ! Great value for the money.
I decided to buy the Kodak Zx3 after reading many reviews about waterproof camcorders. I live with my family in Brazil, and during our holidays we usually go to the beach or spa resorts. As I have two very active 8 years old twin boys, recording our moments with a smartphone or non waterproof camcorders was frustrating, as I couldn't get too close to the action (they love to play in the water, as most kids do). Video quality was my first priority when looking for the camcorder. After watching many video samples on YouTube taped with the ZX3, the video quality looked good enough for my needs, including HD video. In a bright day, the video quality is better than any other portable camera that I've used. My other concern was ease of use, since my wife would also use the camera and she's not much of a tech savvy person :) Again, the ZX3 got that covered very well. The interface is intuitive and to start recording you only have to power it on and press the record button. The use underwater is quite good as well. Just search for Kodak ZX3 on YouTube to have a look. There's a design flaw with the microphone though: sometimes the tiny mic hole on the front of the camera gets stuck with water, and then the audio will get a bit sloppy. The only way to avoid that is to shake the camera a bit when taking it out of the water, or by swiping your finger over the hole to make sure there's no water covering it. The battery life is not very good, but since it's replaceable, I just bought a second one to take as a backup in my trips - they're cheap and easy to replace. Overall I'm quite happy with the Kodak ZX3. It's cheap, with exceptional video quality, very easy to use, you can get additional batteries to use as backups/spares and it's easy to expand the memory capacity with SD cards.Read full review
