Just a heads up on the Playsport Deal currently at amazon.
The price i've listed (£131.49) applies for the White and Green only currently... i assume they are the least favorite colours of those buying them.
Most prices are at least a tenner more than amazon, but amazon throws in an 8gig card (Class 4) for free.
Always nice, you need a card with it anyway.

Taken from Amazon
'From now until May 3, 2011, you can claim a Free 8GB SD Card when you purchase a Kodak PlaySport Zx5 Full HD Camcorder.'

Listed prices here for those interested.

Kodak Playsport Zx5 Black - £144.99
Kodak Playsport Zx5 Red - £136.90 (9% off)
Kodak Playsport Zx5 Blue - £136.60 (9% off)
Kodak Playsport Zx5 White - £131.49 (12% off)
Kodak Playsport Zx5 Green - £131.49 (12% off)
SanDisk 8GB SDHC Secure Digital Card - £8.29 (Free with this promo)

I got myself the green one, The promo didnt register, so i submitted a request for it in the amazon help section of the site.
Was refunded the price of the card in under an hour.

I've got a ZX3 and am happy with it. A few tweaks plus macro on the ZX5 but if you can live without them then the ZX3 can be picked up for about £80 from bestbuy and there's £6 quidco to be had too.

Nothing wrong with OP's find but sometimes yesterdays model offers the best deal for non-techno casual users like me.

Yep, i was swaying between the Zx3 and the Zx5 before.
But i figured they are phasing out the Zx3, and the videos suggest that the Zx5 does look slightly better in my opinion.
So i put my money on the new tech.
Refering to the above: see vid.

Nothin wrong with the Zx3 though if you can get it a lot cheaper!
Just i think i prefer the newer stuff, thought of continued product support is always a plus!

thinking of buying for bedroom

Watched a couple of youtube vids, Seems there's no HDMI cable in the box, and the Zx3 cable is not compatible. Does anyone know which HDMI cable is compatible?

Many thanks

I saw this also, i know you can apply for a free HDMI cable.
But funny enough i'm not sure if you need to nowdays?

The website (amazon and kodak) say 'HDMI Cable Included'

And this unboxing video also came with one?

I'll let you know if it arrives in the next week (damn bank holidays).
