Whether you’re hitting the slopes, tearing up a dirt trail or exploring the urban jungle, you need a video camera that thrives in the heart of the action. Luckily, that’s exactly where the KODAK PLAYSPORT wants to be. Not only does it shoot glorious Full HD 1080p video and 5MP stills, its pocket-sized casing is waterproof, dustproof and shockproof. And with a touch of the Share button, uploading to your social networks couldn’t be simpler. Capture your high adrenaline moments with the KODAK PLAYSPORT.
But don’t just take our word for it, check PLAYSPORT’s pedigree--its IP68 International Protection (IP) Rating of “6” means that PLAYSPORT is dustproof, and “8” means that it’s waterproof to a maximum of 3m /10ft. PLAYSPORT also passed the MIL-STD-810F shockproof drop test of a 1.5 m (5 ft) fall into a plywood surface.
Selecting underwater mode and underwater white balance on PLAYSPORT will give true-to-life colors in the pool or under the waves.

Everyone enjoys sharing their latest videos and pictures with friends and family online but its often so complicated they end up just staying on the camera! The new KODAK Share Button, that makes sharing your videos and photos super easy, is also on PLAYSPORT.
It’s that easy! And only KODAK pocket video cameras let you simultaneously share to the largest number of social networks and e-mail addresses automatically when you connect to a PC.
For the ultimate on-camera viewing experience in bright light, turn on the LCD Brightness/Glare Shield feature in Setup. The brightness adjustment will be automatic, and the Glare Shield feature will provide a choice of filters (normal, high contrast, or black and white) to help you better see your subject on the display screen in reflective outdoor situations. These filters are only applied to the display screen, not your footage—so everything you record will look as great as the moment you shot it.
Finding your favourite videos on PLAYSPORT is quick and easy thanks to single or multi-up viewing options in review mode. Showing off those videos is just as easy whether you share them immediately on the 5.1 cm (2.0-type) LCD or connect to another viewing device. Using the HDMI port on the side of PLAYSPORT you can connect directly to your HDTV with the supplied HDMI cable for rich Full HD 1080p videos on the big screen. PLAYSPORT offers various playback options including standard speed; fast-forward, rewind and pause, you can even playback in slow motion, down to 1/16th of normal speed to make your footage even more impressive.

You don’t have to wait until you connect to a computer to edit your videos. With on-screen editing you can trim your videos—from the beginning or end —anytime, anywhere. Choose ‘save’ to replace or ‘save as’ to create a new file, press the share button to select sharing destinations, and your videos will be on their way immediately when you connect PLAYSPORT to a computer. On-screen editing also allows you to extract single frames from the video so you can grab that one amazing moment or a cool series of still photos.
Get sharper videos and less blur thanks to built-in digital image stabilization (DIS). PLAYSPORT includes Smart Face tracking technology ensuring that faces are properly exposed automatically. A 4x digital zoom, controlled by the up and down scroll button, makes sure you can get even closer to the action and capture all the finer details. PLAYSPORT even features a macro mode which is activated within the settings menu. To focus on an object between 7-17 cm away, select macro mode for sharp close-ups with incredible results.
KODAK PLAYSPORT is designed so you’ll never miss the moment. Power on and you are immediately ready to record with its ultra simple one-button operation—just press the Record button on the back once to start recording and a second time to stop recording. The built-in mono microphone and speakers will automatically record and playback recorded sound.
Looking for variety and creativity? Apply one of the five capture effects: black and white, sepia, normal colour, high saturation with bright, bold colours, or 70’s film with muted colours and a little graininess for a retro look.
There’s a SD/SDHC card slot which accepts up to a 32GB SD/SDHC card—separately purchased--that’s good for up to 10 hours of video (about 20 min per 1 GB at 720p HD, 30 fps). If you run out of memory on the go you can simply change to a new card. (Class 4 cards or higher are recommended for HD.)
The KODAK PLAYSPORT comes with a powerful internal Li-Ion rechargeable battery, delivering 30% more battery life than the previous generation. Recharge conveniently using the mini-USB cable connected to a computer or the AC adapter connected to a wall socket.
The optional KODAK remote control provides flexibility in both shooting and playback so you can shoot from a distance and even join the action you’re recording. Attach an optional tripod for even more shooting versatility. When you’re ready to playback video and pictures on your TV, you can use the remote control to run the show comfortably from your favourite chair across the room.

The first time you connect the PLAYSPORT video camera to your computer, KODAK’s Share Button app (a small software program) will automatically launch and prompt you to add login information for your online sharing sites and email address. After that one-time setup, pictures will automatically be uploaded to the sharing destinations you’ve chosen just as soon as you connect your camera to your computer.
You’ll also be prompted to install ARCSOFT MEDIAIMPRESSION for KODAK Software (PC only) that’s installed on PLAYSPORT and provides additional editing features beyond trimming and single frame extraction that are available directly on PLAYSPORT. If you’re a Mac user, no worries, you can use APPLE iLIFE software for editing. With ARCSOFT MEDIAIMPRESSION for KODAK Software you can use the ‘movie maker’ feature to edit clips, add text screens for titles at the beginning and credits at the end of a movie, sequence a number of clips to tell your story, add a voice-over to narrate your footage, add pictures and music to make cool mash-ups, and use EasyPrint to print jpgs on your printer. You can also change resolution, or use the media converter to change file format, including AVI, and transcode your videos for viewing on other common devices like an iPOD or KODAK picture frame—even burn DVD’s (including BLU-RAY-compatible format) for viewing on TV and archiving.
