5 out of 5 stars   Solidly built--carry it all the time
By scottinojaivideos (Ojai, CA) July 21, 2012
Review submitted for Kodak Playsport Zx5 Waterproof Pocket HD Video Camera Black (KDZX5K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Solid construction, Size, Screen clarity, Great Picture Quality, Easy to Use
Cons: Internal Battery
Other Comments: I carry this camera on my belt at all times and use it nearly every day. It feels good in my hand, the buttons with audio feedback make it easy to use, and the screen quality is better than the zx3. Battery life is reasonable, so I don't miss the replaceable battery for daily use. I am concerned with the fact that all batteries lose their capacity over time; I would hate to have to replace a camera just because the battery is old. I have recommended this camera to others and have purchased a number of them for my work. I find them for about $90.00, which makes them a great deal. Not sure I would pay full retail for them. If you go to my youtube site, most of the 5x5 videos were shot with this camera. www.youtube.com/scottinojaivideos
