'There's no flash or video light.'

'Low light recording is very poor, details are hard to discern.'
'Waterproof to 3m.'
'Full 1080p output'
Very good video quality
Easy to use
Bad image quality in low light conditions
'Integrated with advanced technologies, the camcorder has a full 1080p HD video capture at 30 frames per second and can also capture 5 megapixel HD stills. '
'In camera mode, the Kodak PlaySport Zx3 seemed rather slow to focus but otherwise takes reasonable snaps for a camera of this type and that you’ll be using one-handed. '
'So-so video quality'
'So by osmosis the PlaySport comes across as a pretty cool piece of kit from the outset.'

Affordable price point
Waterproof to 2m, 1080p video recording, Easy to use
Subpar low-light performance
Good choice for budget-minded people
'Its video output is very impressive for the asking price, with a reliable low-light performance.'
'It's certainly more stylish than the average pocket cam, which tend to have cheap, plastic cases (we're looking at you Sony Bloggie MHS-CM5). '
'The doors covering the SD card slot and the built-in USB port are a bit flimsy and you'll need to take care after opening them that they're securely back in place when you're finished. '
'Has an A/V input to display video from other devices.'
Mediocre video quality
Disappointing video quality
'Garish-looking design with hard-to-use buttons . '
'The display is clear, albeit a bit dark; it can't really compete with the Kodak Zi8's brilliant 2.5-inch screen, but the Kodak is a larger device.'
'Landscape/macro toggle .'
'The video is compressed using H.264, so the top data rate is relatively generous for 1,440 x 1,080 footage.'
