The ultra-compact Kodak PLAYFULL Waterproof Video Camera (Black) is small enough to go just about anywhere, yet sophisticated enough to capture 720p HD video and one-megapixel digital stills. It features an 18MB internal flash memory with an integrated SD/SDHC memory card slot that can expand the memory by up to an additional 32GB. The PLAYFULL is about the size of a credit card and can easily fit into your purse or pocket. It's durable, waterproof up to ten feet, completely dust-proof and drop-proof up to five feet on a hard surface.
It comes with editing software (PC only), but the camera itself is compatible with both PC and Mac. However, it does have editing features like clip trimming and still capture from video clips, which are both built into the camera. There's a USB 2.0 port for high-speed transfers of your footage from your camera to your computer, but you can also remove the SD/SDHC memory card (sold separately) and insert that directly into your computer.
Once you've got your footage on the computer, the PC editing software makes it easy to quickly upload and share your videos and digital pictures on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, the Kodak Gallery, Flickr and more. If you're in a hurry to share your footage with friends and family, you can use the integrated HDMI port or A / V jack to watch videos directly from the camera on an HDTV in 720p HD. This requires connection via HDMI, but you can also use the A / V jack to watch footage on the big screen in standard-definition.
Plus, there are several other features you can use to get creative with your presentation. You can use color effects like black and white mode, high-saturation, sepia tone and "70's Movie" mode. When you want to review your footage quickly, you can take advantage of the two-inch LCD display to delete shots, playback clips, fast-forward sections, rewind clips, pause scenes and adjust the volume. You can even tag images and instantly email shots to friends and family.

It takes great pictures and love the zoom and cropping features. Very easy to use and share photos. Only bad thing is the USB connection is very short.
