its a great camera! I suggest investing in the floating arm strap to go with it...this is my second kodak because my first one sunk to the bottom of the river

kodak always makes a great product and this is no exception.
Super easy to use, fits in my pocket, holds up to 32 mb memory card. Reasonably priced I even bought one for my husband and he found it easy to operate.

Buy the Zx3 for great fun in water and on land. Don't pick the Zx5.
This is my third Playsport Zx3 purchase.
The Zx3 is superior to the Zx5 because of the removable battery. Extra batteries and a battery charger and a remote are all available for this camera. The supplied charger works with the battery while in the camera.
The other model, the Zx5, has a macro setting as it's only advantage, which most people would seldom use anyway. The Zx3 does close up pretty well as it is. But the Zx5 has no removable battery, which was a bad move by Kodak since having an extra battery or two is great when you're out filming on a trip or event. Get the Zx3.
Battery is good for an hour or two of total record time depending on how much you use the view screen whle not recording, and the power rating on the battery("mAh" number relates to how long it lasts). Some aftermarket batteries last a little shorter, some longer - read the mAh number rating when choosing what's better for you. The battery model is a KLIC-7004, but comes in different mAh.
The sound sometimes takes awhile to clear up when coming out of water, and the camera is designed as for light use and shallow submersion underwater. It's great around the pool or in bad weather like that snow sled excusion but if your actually diving you may want to choose something more heavy duty.
There is several settings. Video and Camera. The 5MP Still pictures are mediocre. There is no light or flash - so it does decent pictures for a video camera, but bring the regular camera along if you want nice pictures.
There is something to be said about the video options - other cameras may have the 1080 HD @ 30FPS (frames per second) like this one, but only 30FPS @ 720 as well. The Zx3 has a 60FPS @ 720HD setting, and sometimes the 720 HD @ 60 FPS actually makes better movies. There is no simple formula (like using the 60 FPS for action) - some of my action videos actually came out better at 1080 @ 30FPS - typically, the lower resolution seems more vivid and smooth, but it is a lower resolution, and you may find yourself using the 1080 setting most of the time.
I also recommend purchasing the Square Trade warranty if available.Read full review

Excellent product great for the kids!!!
I bought it for my 6 year old daughter. She loves it. She uses it everyday to take pictures of her new born brother. She knows how to charge the unit every night. I bought the unit refurbished and the fact it's water proof to 3M is a definite plus. Taking pictures is a must for my daughter. The only dis like about the unit is I have to show her how to switch from taking pictures to taking movie shots. Overall, very good product to buy.
