Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kodak Playfull Waterproof Video Camera - Black (720p HD, 2x Digital Zoom) 2.0 inch LCD (Camera)
I took this on holiday & tested it out in the pool & sea, diving to around 3m with this camera. It's great value (*around £45), when you compare it with the much heavier GoPro range (Mk 3 is upwards of £250). Being very light, I expected limited battery life, but was pleasantly surprised by it's ability to get 30mins of footage easily before the battery gave out. Fast charging via USB (built in very short USB lead) makes life easy...One drawback is the lack of replaceable battery,which would allow unlimited shooting thru a whole day. I think this would compromise the waterproofness which is why the battery is inbuilt. High quality footage in good light, LG TV playback easily matches regular DVD quality. All in all, a bargain option for an action-cam - without a high frame rate for making slow-mo clips smooth - but then it's not a high price camera. It's a great all round pocket video camera. Stills won't match a dedicated compact of 5M pixels or more, but that's not what this machine is about.
