    Take the plunge with the waterproof digital video camera capable of shooting up to 10 feet under water. Go anywhere - rugged design enables full 1080p HD video recording in just about any environment. Start bragging with amazing 5-megapixel, 16:9 widescreen HD still pictures.
  • Make a colorful statement
    The Kodak PLAYSPORT video camera was designed with you in mind, right down to the colors it comes in. Kodak took cues from the environment - from nature, to climate, to the adrenaline rush it provides - and transformed it into attention-grabbing colors that help you stand out from the crowd.
  • Don't let sun glare ruin your recording
    Simply use your camera settings to turn on the LCD glare shield feature. LCD glare shield feature gives you two filters to choose from that help you see your subject on the display screen in reflective outdoor situations. These filters are only applied to your display screen, not your footage, so everything you record will look as great as the moment you shot it.
  • Smooth, stable, and always able
    Get sharper videos and less blur thanks to built-in electronic image stabilization. Accidents happen - luckily the PLAYSPORT isn't afraid of a little fall, it can take it. Capture your friends in all their glory with smart face tracking technology. See more details and accurate colors with incredible low-light performance.
  • Share your rebellious side
    Debut videos in the palm of your hand with the vivid, high-contrast 2.0-inch color LCD. There's always room for more - record up to 10 hours of HD video with expandable SD/SDHC card slot. Catch the highlights with slow motion playback right in the palm of your hand.
  • Ready for the big screen - right out of the box
    Complimentary HDMI cable lets your videos debut in full glory. Never miss a moment thanks to the rechargeable Lithium-ion battery with in-camera charging. It doesn't matter if you own a MAC or a PC - the Kodak PLAYSPORT is compatible with both.
