The PlaySport will probably not be used to make any award winning documentaries (or even a serviceable student film). But for its price it can’t be beat as an adventure camcorder, and is more than acceptable as a pocket cam for less demanding users. Its video and image quality is on par with the rest of its class, and its superior build puts it above its competitors.

I cannot recommend it unequivocally, but for users with the right needs (affordability, endurance) it is quite possibly the best camcorder around.
