Summary: This camera is amazing I love it! However, I had great big trouble straight out of the box. The SD card slot was damaged, and the camera recognized every SD card as locked. This got frustrating, considering it wouldn't write to the card no matter what. Further research revealed to me a trick: put a piece of scotch tape over the lock switch on your SD card, and voila! No SD card-compatible device will ever think your card is locked. Overall, amazing camera!
Summary: Length:: 1:32 Mins I bought the Orange refurbished Playtouch for $30, and it came with the cables, manual, cloth pouch, just like when sold new, except now in a battered up retail box. Photos and videos are good, provided taken in sunny or bright places. The attached test video shows zoom at 2x is okay, but to the max would be slightly fuzzy. Such pocket cams using digital zoom will never be as sharp as optical zooms using lens that project out when zooming.
Summary: It shoots quality HD video for so cheap. Great for trying to make cheap, simple, but good quality talking head videos in a little home studio. But the touch screen will drive you nuts. Mine is all messed up and won't click in certain areas. I bought the remote but havn't really spent the time to figure out how to use it. So that hasn't worked for me either. After getting an iPhone I don't even know where the playtouch is anymore.
Summary: I love the quality of the video. It is easy to use. When I pan out to get a wider view it doesn't go far at all. I was really dissappointed with the view range. Other than that I am fully satisfied!!
Summary: I bought this camera to film videos for my website. We were outside for the duration of the filming, and mostly I held the camera since I have a steady hand, and I can slowly move to parts I need seen. However, in the end I wanted to be in the last shot so I got my tripod out to put the camera on it, and it was very hard to get it on it. The threading in the mount on the camera was messed up. I really like the camera, but I need to place it on a tripod for some shots.
Summary: I already have a Kodak PlayTouch just like this one I sent to our daughter in Europe. I love mine except that occasionally, if I forget to turn it off, it FREEZES COMPLETELY. I mean, you can't do anything with it except to wait until the battery is exhausted and then you can recharge it and go on. But, what a pain this is.
Summary: A friend in Kansas City recently bought me the new Sony Bloggie Live camcorder, which allowed to me compare it to a Kodak Zi10 Play Touch which I replaced it with. First, the money for the Bloggie Live is insane: $249.00 as compared to $129.99 at Best Buy, and for me it got sweeter when i bought the open box special for $80.99. You simply cannot beat that!
