i am looking to buy myself a pocket HD camcorder i have been looking at the Kodak Z3 playsport cheapest i can find is £85 @ amazon. Saw this post and apart from the fact the playsport is waterproof to 3 meteres i cant see any difference in spec. has anybody any sugestions on which is the best all round Purchase?
#2
Been around this price for a while give or take a fiver, worth the money it's at though. My daughter was given one from 'film club' for some film work they wanted her to do. Being a picky technology person she liked, so it must be good.

Good price! Been using mine as an in-car camera. 720p 60fps is a great feature.
#6
the playsport is a much better option than this, this is the older model

just ordered one from Best Buy. They're £99 but via quidco there's a 5% discount voucher and 14.9% cashback so it brings it down to around £80.

Totally agree, if you're planning on using it for anything other than daytime outdoors, forget it.

I understand the Zi8 has a decent macro setting, which the Z3 doesn't.
#10
Also I think the Zi8 has a mic socket that the Z3 does not?
#11
There's a guy on YouTube that does lots of comparisons between the PlaySport and the Zi8.
Basically, get the PlaySport unless you wish to make use of the 3.5mm Mic Input of the Zi8.
Waterproof, rubber coating, and a wider angled lense.

Oh, and about 10 days ago, Amazon had the Zi8 down to £69.99 for a few days

What's better, this or the Flip Ultra 2nd gen?

Present for my mum and dad so needs to be relatively decent indoors.

Decent indoors - neither.

But if I had to choose one for my parents I'd go for the Kodak - less likely to break when they inevitably drop it. :D

If anyone expects a device like the playsport to be waterproof they are idiot.

Decent price
I wasn't sure at the beginning of this year whether to buy this or a Flip UltraHD

I went with the Flip UltraHD and while I regret not having 1080p video to watch on my 1080p TV, I'm glad I chose the Flip cos I can change the batteries and apparently this doesn't have as a good a battery life as the Flip

Weird cos I have actually got the playsport and had mine in a swimming pool, down water slides and in a paddling pool and it seems fine. Lots of vids on YouTube of people diving with it too. Congratulations you win most stupid post of the week

@ STEWBY HAHA NICE ONE!

Electronics + h2o + budget price + sod's law = guaranteed problems ...sooner or later.
Mino is for fashion victims.
In between the DT's read amazon reviews. People who actually bought a playsport.
I've got Zx1 and Mino hd and aiptec carp and md80 clone. Considering one of these for the better still photos, because that is one of these most useful abilities.
#23
The playsport has an average of 4 stars on amazon, pretty good. Wouldn't say the playsport is particularly a budget price at rrp.

My Playsport was delivered today but I was somewhat concerned after your post and reading some reviews. Next time I will check before I buy!
