Summary: The Kodak PlayTouch is a compact Full HD digital video camera whose most interesting feature is undoubtedly the handy touch screen display that facilitates access to various menus and the use of various functions. Among these, we have to mention those to edit video directly on the camera and loading facilitated on social networks. Always be pointed out is the push-out USB arm and the entrance miniHDMI. Interesting package purchase.
Pros: Vertical grip; HDMI; Package; Movies Full HD video; UDB Removable Arm
Cons: Digital Stabilizer; Width objective; Only digital zoom
Conclusion: The PlayTouch’s feature lineup is certainly impressive and while it shoots great Full HD video it’s not without its shortcomings in other departments. That said, it’s certainly worth a look if you’re in the market for a 1080p-shooting pocket camcorder.
Summary: 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 our list of strong and weak points. These list the positive and negative features of the product so that the readers can decide for themselves which features are important to them.
Conclusion: The Kodak Playtouch Video Camera packs a touch screen along with plenty of settings, effects, and extras, but video image quality isn't top-notch.
Pros: Slick design with responsive touch screen. Variety of HD video resolution and frame-rate options. 5-megapixel still image capture. In-camera video effects. Macro focus. Microphone input. Headphone jack. HDMI cable included.
Cons: Video quality isn't as impressive as the competition. Only a 2-inch portion of the 3-inch display is viewable while recording video.
Excerpt: When new product iteration comes out in the market, I expect it to be better than its predecessor. If it is not better, then it is really disappointing and this has happened here for Kodak PlayTouch also known as Zi10. This gadget is the update to Zi8 which was a really good camcorder and it had an external mic jack which wasn’t found on other devices in this class.
Summary: The Kodak PlayTouch would be a great pocket camcorder if not for two major issues: the video quality and the limits imposed on the display. I'll give Kodak a pass for the thin-plastic build as it is probably a tradeoff for the PlayTouch's light weight.

Summary: Kodak’s PlayTouch joins an exclusive band of pocket camcorders like the new Sony Bloggie and the JVC Picsio clan to boast touchscreen operation. But while these ticklish moves grab the limelight, this pocket shooter also comes packed with a welter of other top features: 1080p HD video recording quality, macro mode, face recognition, image stabilization and handy onboard editing software.
