No Model Number; No Extended Manual; No Product Support
3 weeks ago
Summary: While there is a manual that comes with the camera, it is insufficient for non-techies like myself. When I went to look the manual up online, I was required to enter a model number. None on the device. None on the ad. As I scrambled thru the website, I found one very clear message. This Playtouch device (if only I knew which one mine is) is no longer supported by Kodak. No way. No how. I did look at the Overview for all the Playtouch video cameras listed.
Summary: Blurried lines is a great song but a horrible review for this camera. The video was horribly blurred and unuseable. I coach and use video for the teams and we were not able to use the video because of the blurried video that made the players unrecognizable.
Summary: My camera is one year old. The touch-screen buttons don't work so cannot send videos, edit videos, delete videos, etc. Kodak said send it back they can fix it for $84. Amazon's price on new Kodak Zi10 is $79.99. Don't buy this camera. If you read the reviews online and on YouTube you will understand the need to find a different product.

Summary: The camera worked great right out of the box for about a month and then it wouldn't turn on without removing and replacing the battery. Then it started freezing up in the middle of recording and wouldn't shut off. We bought this camera as a NEW item. The box it came in was also marked as new but when you open the battery cover it is marked as refurbished. We didn't want a refurbished camera as we are doing business videos and looking for something that would last.
Summary: Was very excited to get the playtouch but i can't even turn the thing on as the camera won't charge . I spent over an hour with Kodak support online with no real solution. Very, Very disappointed.

Summary: Updated 3/18/11 My wife still cant get it to download consistently on her laptop with Vista. We have even sent the camera back to Kodak so they could add the latest revision of the camera software. Our shipped first day camera was months out of date(dont ask me how that is possible) and was so behind we could not even get it to connect to the laptop. Now the laptop sees the camera but rarely allows a connection.
