Kodak PlaySport ZX5 Camcorder

  |   by DigitalCameraReview Staff

This time around we ve gotten our hands on the EasyShare Sport’s camcorder counterpart, the Kodak PlaySport Zx5. Upon first receiving the device, our sights were set low by how similar it seemed to the EasyShare Sport. The names are similar, the displays are similar, and Kodak’s entire marketing campaign for the PlaySport seemed directly copied from the EasyShare Sport (right down to the dirt-covered, partially submerged PlaySport featured on the camcorder’s official product page).

  • Pros

    • Rough, tough
    • Macro mode
    • Decent video quality


  • Cons

    • Small display
    • Not good in low-light


Quick Take

For users with the right needs (affordability, endurance), the Kodak PlaySport Zx5 is quite possibly the best camcorder around.
