Summary: We got this camera last year for my then eight year old daughter for Christmas. It has traveled around disneyworld, sea world, and in pools and the ocean. She has a case with a clip that she clips onto her jeans, and wears it almost everyday, recording and taking pictures.
Summary: Have used this cam camping, outdoors in the rain, wind & snow and it performs well. One of the reasons I bought it. The better class SD card you buy helps, but still for the price this cam has nice options and ease of use.
Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to Europe. Took excellent stills and good video. The video quality is good if you move the camera slowly. The audio is mediocre but not too bad. It was raining in Paris - everyone put their camera away but me.
Summary: Took the camera on a cruise vacation. Gave it to the kids to film, took it snorkeling underwater and para-sailing. The HD video in it's final form (imported into iMovie on an iMac) was surprisingly good. Smooth, clear.
Summary: I got my camera - so excited - went to the park with the kids, swimming in the pool - it is so great to have a little camera to capture all the fun times rather than the big clunky camera. It takes decent pictures.
Conclusion: The Zx3 looked and felt a bit smaller than I thought it would, but that didn't affect anything. First, the simplicity of only having a few buttons on the front for record, playback, trash, and setting is great. I like simple. Even the settings menu is simple.
Conclusion: Manage roller skating rinks, wanted a decent camcorder for our youtube page. This is great. Easy to use, good quality, obviously not best quality out there, but for price its perfect. Great image stabilization as well.
Summary: What you pay for: - water/weather resistance - works fine for both. I've used mine in rain/snow, and in a 4ft pool with no problems at all. - H.264 Quicktime video - compact modern format - 720p HD - works great. 1080p HD - not so great, I never use it.

Summary: We purchased the camera for our trip to So California in August 2010. We have had the camera for 5 months. The video camera worked great recording the roller coaster rides. The video turned out sharp. Pictures on it are not great, better than some phone cameras.
Summary: I was very impressed with the video quality of the PlaySport and for almost a month it worked great. I took it out in the ocean regularly, but never immersed it deeper than 2 feet below the surface, well within the 10-foot limit.
