With the Playsport Zx5, Kodak has built on the excellent Zx3, and added standards-compliant dust and shock proofing. The result is a camcorder ready for a wider range of outdoor activities. The specifications and performance are otherwise very similar. So although the new model is a little more expensive, making it slightly worse value overall, it’s the better choice if you want a cheap pocket camcorder able to resist the elements and a bit of rough treatment.
