  • Pros: The camera has everything I needed it was compact, easy to operate, had HD features and it does have a SD card 30MB slot.
  • Cons: Button placement I think. I used the camera 3 times out of the package. On the fourth it failed to power up. I called the Kodak help line. Essentially I repeated the same troubleshooting steps I had already taken. I had the camera less than 30 days s

dark shadow under Low light

Walmart
20 June 2010
  • Summary: It's a great video camera ONLY UNDER STRONG SUNLIGHT. You will see two dark dots at the bottom of the video when the light wasn't sufficient. It's almost like the lens is switching when you move it from lighter area to darker area, and this may be caused by a defective low light lens or just firmware. I contacted the customer support, but even the technician wasn't sure if this is a hardware defect or not.

  • Summary: The bottom line to me is the ZX5 produces video with no better image quality than current mobile telephones. In fact when it comes to colour reproduction and balance the ZX5 is noticeably worse than my phone (Nokia E6). The irony is the ZX5 records 1080 video with VBR averaging at a fairly respectable 14 MBits/s, so it's a pity colour recording is clearly off and in need of improvement along with white balance.
  • Pros: Waterproof, robust, simple to use
  • Cons: Mediocre video image quality, can't switch off image stabalisation.

Subacquea sì ma...che fatica!!!

sovi2001, Ciao
26 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Io oltre che di musica sono un appassionato di mare...mare mare e sempre solo mare...beh sempre, diciamo ad agosto quando le ferie me lo permettono. Ma arriviamo al dunque...per uno che ama il mare, le immersioni, snorkeling cosa può esserci di meglio se non anche catturare foto ed immagini del fondale marino? E così ho acquistato questo prodotto (possiedo anche un cellulare subacqueo, ne troverete i dettagli tra le mie opinioni....sicuramente superiore ...
  • Pros: Meglio di una usa e getta subacquea che si trova negli ipermercati !
  • Cons: Pessime foto, filmati appena accettabili !

Pratica ma con qualche difettuccio

Pulsar51, Ciao
10 July 2011
  • Excerpt: ...lavora molto degradata. Perchè la Kodak non aggiorna il firmware per prevedere 25 e 50 fps? Questo mi costringe ad abbassare il rating sulla qualità della registrazione. ...
  • Pros: Praticità, Robustezza, Calo di luminosità ai bordi
  • Cons: Fluidità filmati, Zoom, Prodotto inadatto agli standard europei (PAL a 25/50 fps)
