Kodak Zi10 Overview

  • 1Description

The Zi10 PlayTouch Video Camera (Black) is a sleek HD pocket camcorder from the grand-daddy of photographic imaging, Kodak. Like all camcorders in the genre, the PlayTouch features a compact form-factor. Being this small, pocket cams generally don't have room for larger, touch screen LCDs. Not so with the PlayTouch. Kodak gave this camera a 3" touch screen LCD that allows for viewing in portrait or landscape.

In addition to its 1920 x 1080 HD video and 5.3MP digital still capture, the features of the PlayTouch set it apart from the pack. Digital image stabilization, HDMI and A/V outputs, and a microphone and headphone connection are all rarely seen features in the world of pocket camcorders. Other useful functions, such as 4x digital zoom, a built-in USB connection, and a built-in rechargeable battery aid in recording as well.

When it's time to edit and share what you've shot, the PlayTouch allows for playback and review on its generous 3" LCD. You can also easily share your memories when connected to your PC or Mac with the built-in USB connection. The built-in ARCSOFT MEDIA IMPRESSION software helps edit and share with PCs, while Mac users can edit and share using MPEG4 compatible editing programs.

    Kodak Zi10 Reviews

    Zi10 PlayTouch Video Camera (Black) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most features in its class! It is really difficult to find a flipcam with a MICROPHONE INPUT, surprisingly. This is one of very few cameras out there offering one. Given the tri, er, quadfecta of that feature and its TRIPOD MOUNT, SD CARD SLOT, and 1080P RECORDING, it has all the features you could want for a high quality recording at a super-bargain price. The video and still images themselves come out very nicely, the sound quality is good, and the user interface is very intuitive. Be advised- digital zoom only, but that's pretty much the definition of a flipcam, so I can't take a star off for that. It would be like rating a road bike down because of poor offroad performance. Just buy a mountain bike, right?

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from external mic concerns I ordered 12 of these for use in a high school video art class because they had an external microphone input. When I plugged in the external mic and hit record the levels dropped to almost inaudible quality. When using the built in gain, you could see that the hardware was working, then when you pressed record a glitch in the software caused the external mic not to work. This happened with all 12 cameras so I was forced to return them. Kodak said that they would have to be shipped to them for 30 days which would not work as my class had to continue. This seemed to be the ideal and affordable camera, but it could not deliver on the external microphone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zi10 Camera We use this as a basic video camera for student productions -- our students ARE NOT video savvy as our university does not offer a degree in either television or film but instructors are still willing to assign a video production for a project (go figure). As one can imagine, the video projects overall are pretty bad both content and production value wise--the camera makes it easier for the students to turn something in as it takes great video and allows a microphone to be plugged in. The USB file can be dragged easily on to a computer for editing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zi10 very good This is a great little camera. The image quality is quite good if you turn the settings up. The reason I purchased it is because it takes an external microphone which drammatically improves the sound especially during a narration. The controls are easy to operate, but zooming is hard to do while filming because it is a touch screen and it is very easy to move the camera while touching the screen to zoom. Having a SD/SDHC card slot is a good feature that some other small camcorders do not have. Be sure to go online and get the firmware update, because that made a huge difference in sound quality for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the trick. I use this camera to record songs on my ukulele and to record long board rips around town. What I like mostly is obviously the external mic input on the camera although when I used it first with an SM58 it sounds like it is only recording audio into one channel the right I believe. So when listening through head phones you only get one head phone the other is fuzz. I will most likely play around with other smaller microphones before contacting tech support. My only other complaint would be the still images are a poorer quality than expected. Other than that very user friendly, light, and portable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this camera! I love this mini camcorder for many reasons! It is so easy to just throw into my daiper bag so that I can take it anywhere and not miss videoing special moments of my daughter. It is very easy to use. My mother isn't very good with technology, but she was able to figure this camera out easily. The HD video and sound work really well. I also like that it can take still shots so that I don't have to keep an additional camera in my bag. It is so easy to use and great if you need to video something quickly. If I had to pull out a larger camera to video I might miss whatever my daughter was doing that I wanted to video. I am very excited about this video camera and look forward to using it more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Playtouch HD Videocamera I purchased the Playtouch HD Videocamera as Christmas gift for my husband and he loves it. User friendly and small enough to take along where ever, good quality for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like you'd think. The size and feel of an iphone, but much cheaper for just a video camera. You buy these not to make your epic film, but to shoot some quick video. Really easy to use, and nice that it allows some simple editing in camera. The external mic input is a great addition and worth it if you plan to interview people, but the internal mic is pretty good. Don't expect much in low light, but otherwise picture quality is OK. The macro mode is pretty good too. We got about 20 of these from various sources to do a quick film chalenge for our clients. Sent them out with instructions, and the participants sent them back with 15 minutes of footage. Editing is to come, but haven't had much issue getting it into FCP.

    question

    does this device have a manual audio level setting?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    There is no manual audio level setting capability. However, microphone gain sensitivity of the internal or external microphone (if one is connected) may be chosen.
