Good: Waterproof, robust, simple to use
Bad: Mediocre video image quality, can't switch off image stabalisation.
Comment: The bottom line to me is the ZX5 produces video with no better image quality than current mobile telephones. In fact when it comes to colour reproduction and balance the ZX5 is noticeably worse than my phone (Nokia E6). The irony is the ZX5 records 1080 video with VBR averaging at a fairly respectable 14 MBits/s, so it's a pity colour recording is clearly off and in need of improvement along with white balance.
You might want to consider a £20 waterproof case for your mobile phone as an alternative to the Playsport ZX5.
Good: Its great in most ways
Bad: Prices of accessory's / sound
Comment: I am definitely going to own this camera, the rubber covering makes it look stylish, its easy to use AND it films underwater.
Good: Nifty, clear and easy to use! Top marks to Kodak!
Bad: No wifi capability.
Comment: I have a Panasonic mini HD Camcorder but it is bulky compared to Kodak, great pics too!
