Kodak PlayTouch review: Kodak PlayTouch

 

Kodak PlayTouch

Small, attractive body; headphone/mic jack; basic on-device clip editing; very good sharing features and software; responsive touch screen.

Mediocre video quality compared to previous models; squeaky battery door; can't use full screen for shooting.

Mediocre video quality and a couple design issues keep the Kodak PlayTouch from being a top-notch minicamcorder.

Kodak Playtouch review

 

Kodak's PlayTouch joins an exclusive band of pocket camcorders like the new Sony Bloggie and the JVC Picsio clan to boast touchscreen operation. But while these ticklish moves grab the limelight, this pocket shooter also comes packed with a welter of...

Kodak Playtouch

 

The Kodak Playtouch takes a twist on the popular trend for pocket camcorders, adding Full HD 1080p video capture and a 3-inch touchscreen into the mix. It's a move we've seen from a number of manufacturers looking to expand the offering of such devices...

External mic option, removable battery and storage, choice of video capture modes, HDMI

Video quality isn't great, on-board mic is lacking, screen isn't put to best use, there seems little advantage to adding touch controls, seems expensive

The Kodak Playtouch makes the right moves, but doesn’t delight with the final results. The Full HD video capture lacks the impact we really want and there are various compromises along the way. The focusing switch offers macro potential, but we’d...

Kodak PlayTouch Camcorder Review

 

As the next generation after the widely acclaimed Zi8 pocket recorder, the PlayTouch, also known as the Zi10, had some excellent features, but our hands-on review lead us to give it a big “Thumbs Down.”When we review products, we end the review with...

Kodak Playtouch im Test: Pocket-Camcorder mit Touchscreen

 

Auf den ersten Blick erscheint es, als sei Kodak mit dem Playtouch ins Smartphone-Geschäft eingestiegen. Erst bei genauerer Betrachtung fällt auf, dass es sich nur um einen Camcorder im Hosentaschenformat handelt. Die Videokamera nimmt Filme in...

Kodak Playtouch

 

Aunque no pasa precisamente por sus mejores tiempos, la veterana Kodak está esforzandose mucho en el sector de videocámaras compactas. De los resultados de ese esfuerzo han salido equipos tan interesantes como la Kodak Play Sport o esta Kodak Play...

La Play Touch es, como decíamos, una videocámara Full HD. Su principal modo de grabación es 1080p a 30 FPS, pero puede bajarse a 720p con 60 FPS, o a WVGA (848×480 píxeles), también a 30FPS.

Teste da Filmadora Kodak PlayTouch

 

Nós amamos o projeto compacto, a facilidade de uso, as opções de conectividade, a capacidade de extrair imagens estáticas, e a entrada para microfone externo. Também ficamos impressionados com o fato de que a Kodak incluiu o cabo HDMI no pacote. No...

Cámara de video Kodak Playtouch

 

El tamaño y atractivo diseño. La entrada para micrófonos/audífonos. Funciones dedicadas a compartir el contenido con redes sociales

No se puede grabar en pantalla completa, solo en modo widescreen (16:9). La calidad de video es menor a la de modelos anteriores. La tapa de batería es difícil de abrir

Ideal para usuarios jóvenes que van a fiestas y quieren grabar todo lo que pasa. También para cuando salen de vacaciones y necesitan un equipo pequeño que se pueda guardar en la bolsa del pantalón o una mochila.
