Kodak Playtouch - Pocket-lint

 

The Kodak Playtouch takes a twist on the popular trend for pocket camcorders, adding Full HD 1080p video capture and a 3-inch touchscreen into the mix.

External mic option, removable battery and storage, choice of video capture modes, HDMI

Video quality isn't great, on-board mic is lacking, screen isn't put to best use, there seems little advantage to adding touch controls, seems expensive

The Kodak Playtouch makes the right moves, but doesn’t delight with the final results. The Full HD video capture lacks the impact we really want and there are various compromises along the way. The focusing switch offers macro potential, but we’d...

Small, attractive body; headphone/mic jack; basic on-device clip editing; very good sharing features and software; responsive touch screen.

Mediocre video quality compared to previous models; squeaky battery door; can't use full screen for shooting.

Mediocre video quality and a couple design issues keep the Kodak PlayTouch from being a top-notch minicamcorder.

At $199, the Kodak Playtouch is an easy-to-use, pocket-friendly camera with some compelling features. The Share option and the ability to edit video directly on the device mean you can have your images up on Facebook and Twitter in no time--provided...

Kodak PlayTouch Camcorder Review

 

As the next generation after the widely acclaimed Zi8 pocket recorder, the PlayTouch, also known as the Zi10, had some excellent features, but our hands-on review lead us to give it a big “Thumbs Down.”When we review products, we end the review with...

This video recorder is EXACTLY what i was looking for....small enough for your pocket...video quality is also quite good...I used it for a fire marshal video on 1080 and it turned out real good. I had also purchased a sony stereo mic and that really...

Kodak PLAYTOUCH Digital Camcorder

 

Ok camera, a little clunky to use and the touch screen is really easy to hit when you are recording. I wish they wouldn't have quit making the zi8.
