Kodak Playsport Zx5 Camcorder Review
The Zx5 can record Full HD video (a 1920 x 1080 resolution) using a 30p frame rate, or it can record 1280 x 720 HD video using a 60p or 30p frame rate. The 720/60p mode will get you smoother video, but its video also doesn't look nearly as crisp as the Full HD setting. For testing purposes, we looked at the Zx5's performance shooting Full HD 1080/30p because that's the mode that produced the sharpest results overall.
In our testing, the Zx5 didn't do a fantastic job with motion, but it still managed to be one of the better ultracompact models in this test. The camcorder showed us quite a bit of blur and color bleeding, just like we saw from the PlaySport Zx3, but artifacting and smoothness weren't much of a problem. More on how we test motion.
