Great WORRY FREE memory capturing device
Overall an excellent piece of on the go video device. Snapping a quick memory or recording on the go action with piece of mind that even if it gets splashed OR dropped is irreplaceable. The only two cons (after searching for any and all that I could) are these: 1: the directional button for selections can be slightly harder to push/navigate than one would hope but granted these are buttons that are water PROOF its a minor price to pay (just give it a good nudge and be happy it can take a dunk and survive I say). 2: Kodak distinctly describes this camera as waterPROOF up to 3 meters, in its description as well as right on the camera itself, after multiple tests of around 1 meter I was confident that this description held very true, however after swimming to the bottom of my 8 ft pool the camera did freeze in mid recording and I was scared I had pushed it to its limit. After letting the camera sit and dry and pressing the reset button near the card slot all is well again. Quite a scare but I have not found one button or feature that is not working since. Again all in all I think this camera holds very true to its description, nothing more and nothing less. The battery life could be better but what rechargeable product can one NOT say that about? Aside from the testing the limits of the waterproof ability and having a small scare, I am very pleased with this on the go worry free memory capturing piece of equipment and would highly recommend to most anyone with kids, for vacations, and just everyday use.Read full review

The best way to create big productions with a small, convenient camcorder.
I purchased this cam so I could easily capture live bands with good quality and no complicated set-up requirements. Also, I've found that it can be used to capture friends and family without any big "camera stigma" issues. The overall quality is excellent and the ease of use is amazing. I can produce segments that are very good presentations of a variety of events and then immediately upload them to You Tube or Facebook if desired. Otherwise, I can upload them to my laptop and then save them to a hard drive for future reference. There are really so many options that I still don't even know them all. Other great features are how this device fits in your pocket and also has no problem lasting for hours with the long lasting battery life. Simply a low-cost, smart way to produce great videos.

Great camera! Considering the Zx3? Pay the extra few bucks for the Zx5!!
I ordered this camera to use while riding my bicycle. It comes with a nice wrist strap, which I connect to a lanyard and keep around my neck. This is my first time using a sport/action camera, but I am quite pleased.
I charged the battery and got two days worth of life out of it. I got about 7-8hrs of asage out of this on the 720 HD setting and letting the camera shut itself off on its own.
I've used this camera in low light (dusk and night time) as well as overcasty morning/afternoon. The video exceded my expencations in both situations. In low light/night the camera will "search" for the right exposure, sometimes not able to get it quite right for extremely dark spots. But, it handled bright spots quite well!
Being on a bike, the shake was a real issue that his camera handles well. Other than my lack of panning skills, the shake wasn't horrible. It also picked up sound well without that horrible scratchy wind sound. A downside is that the zoom is a little "quick". I wish that it was just a tad slowly (especially in video mode).
Physically, the camera looks like an older cell phone, so people are less likely to pay you any mind while filming. Also, that means it's quite comfortable to hold and natural to grab in the right position while riding. The large button is easy to feel for without taking your eyes off the rode and the shutter sound (photo mode) and beep (video mode) are loud enough that you can distiquish what mode you are in. (I made the mistake of not being in the right mode I wanted a few times.)
Overall, I'm glad that I went with this camera. It zooms in and out a little too quickly, but the shake is well managed, the sound is great, and works for all times of the day without too much difficulties.Read full review

Recommend it to enthousiasts that live actively outdoors.
My 12 years boy experiments a lot with this camera.We tried it in swimming pool - good video quality, clear pictures. Very strong build - far above no-name cameras.
