    Hi Everyone,

    Just bought a Playsport ZX5 and been playing around with the video. First impressions: very well made, grainy in low light but image stability works great. You must upgrade firmware on board to 1.3 to prevent lock ups and freezes (mine bought yesterday came with 1.0 and caused problems).

    Have done a couple of comparisons at 720p / 30fps with my Samsung Galaxy S2 mobile. For me, the Playsport is about one half a stop under exposed, otherwise it's great.

    Hi, thinking of buying a Kodak ZX5, but it MUST be compatible file/codec with my Android tablet (Asus Transformer).

    I tried some 1080p footage and it's not happy, but have been told that 720p 60FPS and 720p 30FPS may work.

    I don't suppose you can upload some unaltered MP4 footage somewhere (10 sec clip or something), so I can test before I buy? (Youtube is no good for me for testing compatability...).

    If someone could email me a 60FPS 720p clip that would be amazing...

    Many thanks!

    many thanks.

    are you generally happy with you zx5? I tried o. in the store for everything else aside from file format and it seems like a great little sports camera.
