2.0 out of 5 stars Decent Camera - Water RESISTANT ONLY, August 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kodak PlayFull Waterproof Video Camera (Black Bundle) (Electronics)
I bought this camera before going on my honeymoon to Maui. After reading several reviews, I concluded that the camera would probably break after one or two uses in the water. I bought the camera anyway hoping to get as many snorkeling videos out of it as possible.
Sadly, the camera only lasted about 30 minutes on my first snorkeling trip. We took about 4 clips with it, and it worked fine. When I tried to view the vidoes back on shore, however, the camera shorted out. I opened the waterproof chambers and found a small amount of water (5-10 drops) where the memory card is held. I took the camera back to my hotel and let it air dry for over 24 hours before trying to turn it on again. Sadly, the camera was done for. I was able to get the 4 clips of video off the memory card.
I was incredibly careful with this camera and did everything I could to keep water out of it. It seems, however, that this camera is only very water RESISTANT and not waterproof. You could probably use it in the rain or while swimming if you kept it above the water.
I definitely DO NOT recommend it for underwater use.
