    Product... Not sure. Store... NO WAY!

    Posted .

    Bought it on sale and took one picture. Locked up and wouldn't respond to anything. Took it back a few weeks later and they told me I would owe $50 more to replace it. The reason? According to customer service 'It was on sale when you bought it. You have to make up to the new price now.' REALLY? May be a random glitch on the item... but the store lost a lot of money / long time faithful customer for both my personal and business purposes because of such an erratic, unreasonable demand. Their product that I already paid for was defective... but I have to pay a NEW price to replace what I already paid for? No thanks.

    CNET Rated as best in its class for value, but...

    Posted .

    I bought this on 7/9/11 to replace my 20GB Sony camcorder...we were going on a cruise and I thought the HD would be cool and the fact that we would do fresh and salt water excursions, we could really have some unique video. We went to the local lake to boat the weekend before we left and the pictures were amazing!! The HD was really sharp as we swam and tubed and jumped off the boat. A few days later I filmed my daughter indoors in a sporting activity. None of the HD was coming through so I checked the settings...everything was right but the camera was not working properly. We leave for the cruise and are filming ourselves in a limo going to the airport (hey, it was actually cheaper than getting 2 cars!) and the thing will not turn off...will not respond or function at all. Of course, you get online to search the problem and it is apparently happening to many others. The feedback to fellow consumers and Kodak's response on a few blogs is useless. We go on a serious vacation and have to resort to the canon digital and my HTC Evo for pictures and video. Very disappointing. Seems like these failures happen to us after it gets wet. Never been dropped but after the water in the lake it was never the same. A definite no buy for me.

    Fully worth the price!

    This is a really fun device to play with, very versatile and easy to use. Do not expect something "professional" but this totally is up to the challenge to most of the other cameras out there.

    Great product when it works

    first unit had to be exchanged, since it froze up, fortunately after the raft trip was completed. Best Buy exchanged it no questions asked. Even received a $20 refund, since the unit was on sale!

    My Second One

    I bought the video recorder to take underwater videos when fly fishing. It is very good for that. My grandaughter started "playing with it" and liked it so much that I bought one for her.

    Great for underwater shots

    Posted .

    Took it to Hawaii and loved the videos as well as the pictures. Of course not as clear or defined as my Canon but that was not expected. Bought it for underwater pictures and it was well worth it.

    Great value and great videos!

    Posted .

    The HD videos are fabulous for the money. The still pics ore quite lovely, with decent lighting. There is no flash. So, dark settings aren't so great. The underwater capability is fantastic!

    not bad camera.

    Posted .

    If used in salt water, The water proof latches will not open after the camera drys out. Due to that you can not open doors to plug in USB or get memory card out. I almost broke both doors to get them open.

    Great water-proof camera/video camera.

    Posted .

    This is a great waterproof camera/video camera. It take great pictures and video. Used it in Hawaii while snorkeling and got some great underwater pics of marine life as well as some awesome video of sea turtles. It's very convenient to take along on outdoor trips and not have to worry about rain or water ruining the camera.

    DO NOT BUY FOR UNDERWATER USE

    Posted .

    The memory card flap and the charging flap come UNDONE very easily its only a slide lock, and they go exactly where you hold it, i took it out snorkeling, and when i went to grab it, my hand grazed the slide lock of the charging port flap, and it opened, and water got in, thus ruining the camera and wasting my $180 simultaneously. cause i didn't buy insurance, i thought it would actually do what it said it would do well sense it is kodak, and I'm pretty responsible when it comes to my electronics. but hey maybe I'm naive should have bought a flip with a waterproof case, it would have been cheaper and WAAYY more reliable

    Playsport

    A group of us went to Cancun and 4 of us bought this camera. On the first day three of the cameras had failed. Two filled up with water the first time they were in the pool, and one will turn on but you have to continue to hit the reset button to turn it off. The fourth one worked really well. I like the idea of this camera but I will not be buying another one. When 3 out of 4 fail that tells me there are major issues with the camera.

    A very disappointing experience

    Posted .

    We bought this camera for our trip to Hawaii. After the first day of pictures, it was obvious that some water had gotten into the camera. We powered it down and left it to dry, but the damage had been done. It never turned back on. So 5 days of coral reefs, sea turtles, and countless fish are left unpictured in our scrapbook. There wasn't a Best Buy on Kauaii otherwise I would have driven there in a heartbeat to replace this camera. My guess is that the rubber gaskets that cover the ports did not seal properly even though the covers were secure. The pictures we did take underwater before the camera died were really good, unfortunately they were only from the pool. I would loved to have actually gotten pictures of the reef. When I got home, Best Buy did make it right so all I'm out is the pictures not taken.

    I gave this camera to my daughter and she loves it, still hasn't figured out how to make a CD of the movies but at least the memories are there and we will get them onto a CD.

    Great, inexpensive product!!

    Posted .

    We are happy with this product. We have put it to good use recording our kids in baseball, volleyball, track and field, and wake riding on a lake. This camera was easy to use. We bought a 10-rated memory card, and have not had any issues. The only downside is when you film from a distance, it can be a bit grainy. Other than that, we are pleased with this purchase. A great purchase for a very fair price!!

    Definitely worth getting

    Posted .

    I used the ZX5 on my trip to Atlantis last month and loved it. It was used more than my Canon Powershot I brought along with me. It was rugged so I didn't have to be careful with it... I was able to just throw it around without worrying about scratches all over it. Also since I was in Atlantis, it was great for the beach, the water parks and generally all over. Def. a great buy! Would totally recommend to anyone.
