Cool capture effects give a new look to your scenes

Looking for variety and creativity? Apply one of the four capture effects: black and white, sepia, high saturation with bright, bold colours, or 70’s film with muted colours and a little graininess for a retro look.

Don’t let sun glare ruin your recording

For the ultimate on-camera viewing experience in bright light, turn on the LCD Brightness/Glare Shield feature in Setup. 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 2.0” LCD 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.

On-camera editing features let you trim video directly on the 2.0-inch LCD without a computer

Review mode

Select single and multi-up viewing options so you can quickly search and find favourite files in your on-camera collection. Video playback options include standard speed, fast-forward, rewind, pause, and single frame advance that makes it easy to find the perfect frame to extract and save as a still picture —all controlled right in the palm of your hand.

On Camera Editing

Editing videos on your computer can be a time consuming activity. KODAK PLAYFULL WATERPROOF incorporates on-screen editing with simple controls so you can trim your videos right on the camera—both front and back--to save you time. Then choose ‘save’ to replace, or ‘save as’ to create a new file. On-screen editing also allows you to extract single frames from the video to grab that one amazing moment or a cool series of still photos.

Simple one-button operation

KODAK PLAYFULL WATERPROOF is designed so you’ll never miss the moment. Power on and you are immediately ready to record with 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.

Smooth and stable features for sharper videos

Get sharper videos and less blur thanks to built-in digital image stabilization (DIS). Capture your friends in their best light with smart face tracking technology- the camera detects and locks onto faces, then ensures great exposure around them. A 2x digital zoom makes sure you can get even closer to the action and capture all the finer details.

Up to 10 hours of recording time

There’s a SD/SDHC card slot which accepts up to a 32GB SD/SDHC card—separately purchased--(Class 4 or higher recommended for HD) 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. The KODAK PLAYFULL WATERPROOF comes with a powerful internal Li-Ion rechargeable battery that recharges conveniently by connecting the built-in USB arm to a computer, or by attaching the mini-USB cable and adapter to a wall outlet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little camera, not quite perfect 25 May 2013
By dmcnabb
Verified Purchase
I purchased this as a little camera to take on holidays. We previously had an older handheld tape camcorder that just never got used because putting the tapes on the computer was a pain. I wanted to buy something similar to this a few years ago, but as they just came out they were expensive and I couldn't justify it. This is reasonably priced, there are more expensive versions out there, Kodak has another Playfull that is a bit longer than this and about double the price. The other playful isnt waterproof and also has zoom and editing capabilities on the camera. We chose this ultimately because it is waterproof, and when taking kids on holidays, it just adds a bit more fun to be able to film under water. I have a couple of gripes about it. I bought one from Amazon as refurbished. It came and did not work at all, I cant speak for all of those refurbished, but the previous one I had would turn on for a second, I couldn't view playback and it didn't turn onto my computer. Ultimately I had to return it. This one I got is great. It takes standard SD cards (putting it in and taking it out is a bit fiddly as for one the hinge is really funny. Don't force the hinge, you'll break it. I've found if I move the slide that opens the hinge when its open it then slips and opens fully.) I have quite small hands but I have to use the cap of a pen to push it down. The one I ordered came with a Kodak 4GB card, but I used various other SD cards and there were no issues. It is about the size of a mobile phone prior to smart phones and the buttons and screen is quite small. Playback on videos on the camera isn't great. It sounds more static than you can hear the voices, but when you put it on a computer, this doesn't appear to transfer. I would assume it is the internal speaker. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Kodak Playfull 6 Nov 2012
By Stu7

I bought the Kodak Playfull for my daughter to use on a camping and surfing trip to Wales. Taking video with the Kodak Playfull Waterproof camera proved very successful. The camera is small and easy to use but the still photographs are not very good. It is more of a "toy' than a professional camera and should be treated as a bit of fun.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality - Product and Support 27 Oct 2012
By tenbob
I have one of these - however the FIRST TIME I USED IT - the catch for the SD slot broke.

Below is the response from Kodak...

We are sorry to inform you that the battery door cannot be replaced. If the camera part is broken will not be taken under warranty.

It will be considered out of warranty and the replacement camera will cost you 37.92.

So even though this is cheap - if you have an experience like myself - you are throwing money down the drain - I cant comment on the quality of the product - as I cant use it....

We bought this for a family holiday at Centre Parcs and it did a great job of capturing the fun in the water. My 10-year-old granddaughter immediately commandeered it and spent the entire weekend taking pictures of, and filming, the family in the swimming pool, going down the rapids and down the chutes.

She got some really good shots of us all and some great videos too. The camera looks really good and attracted a few comments of "You're going to get your phone wet using it like that" from others. Image quality is surprisingly good and sound on video is excellent, although you can't hear it when you play back on the camera itself. We took masses of stuff without filling up the storage capacity.

I understand why other reviewers have said the access door to the USB connector is difficult to use, but not how anyone could break it. It's a two-step action of sliding then lifting and once you get the hang of it, it is completely straightforward. I was actually impressed by the quality of the whole kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gadget! 8 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
THis is my second (the first mysteriously stopped working) For casual videoing this does all you could want of it and so small and discreet fits into the top pocket. My only quibble is its claim of waterproof...though I used it in the water I think this is a tall order and contributing to the my original one giving up there ghost.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work 26 Dec 2013
By Joanne
Verified Purchase
At first thought what a nice neat camera. Once opened discovered what everyone in previous reviews meant by the USB charging cable, could barely get the plug out and then it was very precarious slotting into USB on Desktop. So flimsy and short can predict that it will not be long before some damage inside the camera.

After several hours of charging, unable to turn camera on. So tried charging via USB port on PS3 for a few hours - again the same thing happened. I know that the cable was connected correctly as the symbol came on screen whilst supposedly charging. Also I was able to turn the camera on whilst it was connected to both USB ports, but as soon as it was disconnected unable to switch camera.

Very disappointing as this was a gift from Santa to my eldest daughter and she was desperate to use her camera all day. Luckily I have been able to return this to Amazon for a full refund, and I have now purchased an alternative camera which my daughter has been able to use today.
