Kodak PlaySport Underwater HD

I saw the Kodak Play Sport on Amazon a while ago, however, once I realized the one I was looking at shot 1080p HD video up to 10ft underwater, it went right into the cart (or wish list until the purchase was approved by the Mrs, either way the intent was there). This camcorder was an upgrade from my old Aiptek HD that was recently passed on to my brother who is currently using it to shoot videos of him playing with toy trucks (tool). So far I a super excited about shooting with this thing. It has minimalist hardware controls, quick access to a 5MP camera mode, 720p, 720p (60), and 1080p video. It also has Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and face tracking (which totally works shooting video underwater)! Form wise, the cam is light but sturdy feeling and fits my palm perfectly.
I promised the peeps on Buzz some test footage, so here it it, footage from my dirty pool (new pool guy sucks.. I don't care if he's 13 he should take his time and do the job right...heh). Enjoy "kids jumping into a dirty pool", shot by me.

  1. OK Thomas... a few comments.

    1. Let's start off nice, this camera is all sorts of friggin' sweet mama awesomeness. Way to go. Traci really can't complain about you having too many gadgets, because it is really that cool.

    2. Does my connection really suck, or is it youtube? Or your camera (please say no)? The video's were super choppy and wouldn't play properly.

    3. It is borderline creepy you video taping young boys in your pool. Just saying.

    4. This would have been sweet for your trip to the Bahamas. Guess you have to plan another one.

    5. This is probably the most important comment. I'm sick of your web site taking me to another slow loading page to make a comment. Go back to the pop up commenter. Much easier.

  2. Joe - I wholeheartedly agree with comment #5.

    Thomas how about you clean our pool before showing the world how dirty it is?

    And yes please. Another trip to the Bahamas or warm coastal area is definitely in order.

  3. Joe: 5 is complete. I am waiting on some new features from Google Friend Connect that will really make commenting easy! For now, you may have your pop up. :)

    As for #2, try watching it in a different resolution, not 1080p, your hardware or connection is most likely the issue.

    #1 I agree
    #4 I agree
    #3 I agree
