I have the Zi6 and it takes great video as long as you aren't moving. The cameras are very easy to use and take high quality video. I am going to be either picking up a plysport or Zi8. I definitely would not ever buy anything without motion stabilization again.
Is the Zi6 just the older version of the Playsport? Does the playsport have image stabilization? I'm probably getting it for sure
According to the Kodak website, the Playsport has image stabilization, so you should be fine. As for whether or not the Playsport is the 2nd generation to the Zi6, I don't know. After looking at the Playsport last night on Kodak's sight, I'm going to buy one and give the Zi6 to my Ma.
You might check e-bay...sometimes you can get a good deal...also keep an eye out in your Sunday paper for places like Office Max or Staples. I got my Zi6 from one of these stores on sale for 1/2 price.
I've had 2 kodack cameras, one video, and I've since stayed away from them. Perhaps they've improved build quality since then (a few years) but I'd much rather see you go with a GOPRO before a kod-yack. Again this is personal experience so someone else may have a good review because I've never used the "playsport" specifically. Just my 2 cents.
Sorry to bump an old thread, but I was thinking about getting one of these. Anyone got some feedback on it?
No problem. I will probably wait to get it for awhile, until closer to next season.
I have actually read so many great reviews for it, that it is more reliable than the flip cams, I'm very commited to getting it.
