Turns on in .5 seconds

I've owned my Playsport for quite a time. Great for underwater. If you want a camera you have out of your pocket and ready in 1 second it's perfect. Over a year and battery still works like new.

Verified purchase: No


Great Value for the price…

I received shipment of your refurbished Kodak ZX5 Playsport Waterproof Video Camera - Aqua Blue. Yesterday I charged it up, inserted a new 16 GB Class 10 SDHC card, reformatted it, and presented it to my nine-year old-daughter at her birthday party last night. She was having a blast with it right away, becoming a self-filmagrapher and vlogger.

The camera was like new, out of the box.

I purchased a Onyx 260 Camera Pouch and my daughter keeps the camera, charger, and USB cable in it when ever she is not using the camera. I told her not to treat the camera like a submersible device.

It's really a great little product and paying the $56.90 refurbished price, with free shipping, was better than buying a $29.95 kids camcorder at Toys Are US. My wife and I purchased two KODAK-refurbished EasyShare Z950s, back in 2010, and we have been very happy with them. Thanks for making the Kodak ZX5 Playsport available to us.

excellent device for filming family vacation

Convenient form. Very simple and intuitive. Good video and good photos. Very easy to use software. For family parties, hiking and amateur reportage - a great device. Price - acceptable.


Great camcorder, that definitely worth its price!

Great camcorder, that definitely worth its price! Picture is really sharp and not noisy. Great performance in a low light. Still pictures are good enough. As for me — they are much better than pictures from an average mobile/smartphone.
Don`t bother about smaller sensor size, comparing to zx3. Quality is great even when you don`t mind the size and price of camera.
There are some negative sides though. Joystick response in my camera is a bit slow, there is a delay in a few milliseconds. But it`s only when you are in a menu.
And I can`t sort out how focusing works, it`s not clear actually.
Nevertheless Playsport zx5 is a great camera, that you`ll love!

Best underwater camera ever!!

I love it. I have a reef tank full of live corals and that's why I wanted this camera, it can go under water. I took some pic's under water and they came out great, also took a video of the corals and fish it look like I was diving on a coral reef somewhere. Just run some fresh water over the camera and dry. This camera for the money turned out to be better than I expected, easy to use, easy to download, loved everything about it. If you get a chance buy one.Read full review...


Alot of fun!!! Great price!!!

I have a friend that has one and she has so much fun with it, you don't have to worry about it getting wet and you can take pictures and video underwater! We went on a tubing trip and my husband saw her camera and he just had to have one! We love it for tubing and pool time, it's great and it takes some really nice pictures too, we were pleasantly surprised by that! Love it and would highly recommend this camera!!Read full review...


awesome camera

Only thing I didnt like about the camera is I didnt pay attention to it not having a flash , so pretty much it has to be used outside or in a high lighted area, other than that this camera is great good picture quality and priceRead full review...


Great easy to use camera

I have a sick sony Hd Camcorder however I cant bring it to many places because of the elements. Water,Sand,snow,Dropping it are all reasons I leave my handycam nice and safe at home missing out on prescious family footage. In comes the kodak playsport, perfect for me and my family. Its ease of use and durability make it a no brainer for me. Let the kids play with it, swim with it, run with it, fall with it, and capture 1080p HD video all the while!Read full review...


Great camera for a great price!

This camera is great! We took it on our honeymoon and I only used this the entire time for our pictures and video camera. We went snorkeling and the underwater picture was amazing. It really helped us capture some special moments on such a special trip. It's a great camera for a great price!Read full review...


Very good value for money, Easy use

I bought this product cause I wanted a small camera to have it with me in boat when I'm going for spearfishing, and also mount it on speargun. I don't have something that dislike about this product, accept that I also bought Ikellite's underwater housing, and it is much bigger than I thoughtRead full review...
