Easy to Use, Great Quality Pics but Fragile,
This review is from: Kodak PlayTouch High Definition Video Camera 5MP,3.0 LCD - Black (Electronics)I bought this camera to record footage of my customers using my products and its been very easy to use - literally charge it up, insert the SD card, turn it on and record! For a while I had been using my mobile phone and other digital cameras for recording video, but decided that this camera was worth it for two big reasons: its quality (true HD at 1080 whereas my iPhone wasn't nor was my digital camera) and its size (its about the size of a mobile phone).
All the camera's functions are easily accessed through the touch screen and the navigation is straightforward. When filming people, the camera automatically identifies people and then automatically focuses on their faces and keeps them in focus. It also has simple modes for videos and still pictures which are easy to use, but frankly I have used them apart from experimentation when I first got it.
I have used a standard camera mount & tripods, which simply screws into the base of the camera.
Kodak also include editing software so you can easily edit the videos or stills
I took the camera skiing and unfortunately it broke when in my pocket, despite the fact that my iPhone or my still camera was fine.
