Kodak Playsport Zx5
By Brian Jones
The Kodak Zx5 pocket video camera is waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof, making it a highly durable little camcorder. You can take it with you underwater up to 10 feet and for 2 hours and capture colorful sea or pool scenes. Don’t worry about everything turning out blue or murky—the camera’s white balance mode preserves the true colors underwater. While the camera’s images have some noise in low light, its picture quality is pretty great overall. You have the option of shooting in 1080p HD video, which is sharp enough to show on your HDTV with an HDMI cable (sold separately). For the fun features this camera provides, it’s a bargain at $99.
