I bought this camera with the thought of using it on our recent trip to Hawaii when snorkeling. I couldn't be happier with the camera and it's available functions. I took movies of sea turtles swimming along just under the surface of the water as well as colorful fish feeding in the shallows. With the setting at 1080p, I am amazed at the clarity of the videos and the sound recorded, too. The underwater setting does work, the resulting photos and videos being clear and in focus and not needing editing by Photoshop Elements. I did not use the telephoto button as I didn't want to have possible distortion occur. Using the camera on the beach, I took great photos/videos of my grandchildren having a wonderful time digging in the sand and building sand castles. The only recommendation I would make is that when using the camera in salt water, the camera be washed with fresh water immediately after leaving the salt water as the salt, once dried, will make the opening of compartment sliding locks very difficult. This camera far surpasses the yellow Minolta underwater camera I had years ago, especially since it works with a 32GB SD card, offering plenty of storage for filming.

I bought this Kodak zx5 camera to take on a cruise specifically for a snorkel tour. I carried the camera around much of the time outside of the snorkeling because of its convenient size. The camera takes great pictures and videos. I does require good lighting conditions and that subjects that don't require too much detail when zooming (digital zooms aren't worth too much). I was more impressed with the still photos than I expected to be.

On the snorkel tour is worked wonderfully. I shot a good hour of video snorkeling and the video came out very clear and with audio (somewhat surprising to me). The reaction from everyone I have showed these video to is "Wow! That really looks great!" I rinsed the camera thoroughly in a faucet after snorkeling to clean off the salt water and found no water on the inside when checked. The photos and videos play right off the SD card on my laptop or iPad (if you have the iPad camera card reader). I played the videos on a 46" HD tv and they look nice and clear.

For the price of this camera I am very happy with the results. I bought the Burton Bundle because I wanted some of the extras and the bundle price was attractive versus buying the additional pieces separately.

The Kodak Playsport ZX5 has been better than expected. Very easy to use, extremely quick start up so we're able to capture impromtu moments easily. The best thing about it has been teaching our young kids to use it and let them take videos whenever they want, without worrying about them dropping or damaging the camera. You get great moments from their perspective!

I bought this camera to take quick little videos while hiking. It's very durable and waterproof, so it was perfect for the task.

Pros:
The camera is listed as shockproof, which I had the misfortune to test. After a hike I left it on the roof of my car and it was launched off as I went around a curve. I don't know how, but I managed to spot it after I went back to look for it. It had a little scratch near the top, but still functions like new.
The camera is listed as waterproof, which I tested by submerging it in the bathtub. No issues.
The video quality is excellent and the camera is very easy to use. It powers on and is ready to shoot video very quickly.
The thing that surprised me was the quality of still pics it took. I think it was listed as 5 mp, but for posting on the web they turned out excellent.

Cons:
The only issue I have with the camera is the 4X zoom. It is almost non-existent so you won't be shooting video of things from afar, but to its credit, this is very common with this style camera.

In conclusion, I recommend this camera. In fact, I happen to see a refurb special and picked one up for my son.

This is a great little video camera. It is easy to use and fully met my expectations. I'm not a video tech savy guy, so this did everything I needed. It has everything in the package which was nice. I do recommend getting a couple memory cards. I even found the tripod to work great with my regular camera.

BTW - No longer in production, so if you want one, you should get it before they run out

I have had it for three weeks, and it has floated, flown, dropped and recorded a combined 15+ hours of better-than-expected video without a complaint. Sure does take a beating. I installed a display protector (leftover from some cell phone), and after the kite shooting session, I was very happy I did.

Pros:
- You can take this camcorder close to anywhere. I have attached it to a stunt kite and a kayak, and have gone swimming in the ocean. The video quality is not as good as with my "grown-up" camcorder, but much better than I anticipated. See below for a few examples. And said grown-up camcorder would not likely have survived any of what I have done with the Zx5.
- The tripod mount has been used extensively.
- The flex tripod that comes with the Burton Bundle is versatile and has a practical quick release.

Cons:
- The low-light performance is no better than so-so. Even my iPhone 4 is classes better in low-light and back-lit conditions.
- The microphone is located behind an array of small holes, which tend to trap water. Unless you blow out the water after submerging the camcorder, the audio is muffled and/or contaminated with electronic artifacts. And it may take a long time until the water dries by itself.
- Sand tends to get trapped everywhere. Rinse, rinse, rinse, and then rinse again before opening the doors.
- The flex tripod that comes with the Burton Bundle is made of plastic and seems to loosen up quickly. Wonder how long it will last.
- The case that comes with the bundle appears like an afterthought and does not fit more than the camcorder plus one more item.

Given the expectations are clear, I would definitely recommend the Zx5 to a friend.
