Summary: I purchased this to do some online marketing with video. The video is AWESOME. Great quality, HD, easy to use. If you just want to take this and shoot and upload...go for it. But if you want to download to your computer and edit....FORGET IT> Takes forever and never loaded correctly.
Summary: The camera is hard to hold so you need a tripod. The Kodak Pocket Video Digital Camera Remote Control doesn't work to zoom in or out, only to start or stop it. I bought it to video myself in presentations so i planned to use a tripod anyway but there is no way to reverse the screen so that I can see...
Summary: The nice thing about this camera is it's small. and the battery life really is not that bad. And the macro-mode works pretty good. the terrible aspects of this camera is although you can take still pictures with it you'll be better off getting clearer pictures just recording in 1080p.
If its reburbished dont expect much. If new, I'm sure you'd love it.

Summary: Perhaps the charging system on my particular camera is defective but I have not been able to enjoy the Kodak play touch camera for any more than five or ten minutes before it goes completely dead even after hours of charging.
Summary: I was quite happy with the video quality and ease of use of this camera. Then when it was 5 months old, the touch screen would no longer respond properly. It may have something to do with the fact that I would often use it on a tripod and I noticed that the camera would flex.

Summary: Nice looking product...but Stills... No optical zoom means the more you zoom the worse (grainy) the picture gets. Picture quality is ok outside with no zoom in full sun any less and again there goes the picture quality. Video... No optical zoom means the more you zoom the worse the picture gets.
