Kodak PlaySport Waterproof HD video cam

At about $130, the Kodak Playsport HD looks interesting. It's waterproof! It's HD, 1080p or 720p (@60 fps). It has image stabilization, too. Anyone tried it yet?

Here's a side-by-side comparison to the Flip Ultra

Interesting. From the demo clip, it appears less effective in low-light than the competitor.

Hello , :grin:

its a good cam but :
not very waterproof if you swim with it (approach to a flame 1 hour to dry it , keep out frog under lens :shrug: )
hd 720p wide angle 30 or 60fps..hd 1080p medium angle 30fps
poor in low light : i use 2000 lumens..3000 lumens and pixelised when its low :down:
i have tested a waterproof olympus "u tough 3000" and the results are very better in hd low light (1000 lumens is ok to light so far 50 meters !)
