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.
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.
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.
