Great in and out of water,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kodak PlaySport (ZX5) Waterproof Pocket Video Camera Bundle (Includes Remote Control, Tripod, 4 GB Memory Card, HDMI Cable, and Camera Case) - Burton Bundle (2nd Generation) (Electronics)
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.
