Summary: Earlier this year, Kodak introduced the very petite and sleek Playfull HD video camera at CES 2011. Now that the mini-camcorder is ready to ship, here’s the hands-on review.
Earlier this year, Kodak introduced the very petite and sleek Playfull HD video camera at CES 2011. Now that the mini-camcorder is ready to ship, here’s the hands-on review.
Setting up the Playfull is as simple as shooting video - meaning it only requires a couple of steps and clicks. After inserting the fully-charged, included battery, the settings menu popped up for configuring the date and time.
However, just like with the Kodak EasyShare Mini, there was no SD card to be seen in the box, so hopefully you have an SD/SDHC card lying around. You’ll also want one with over at least 2GB of space, but it supports up to 32GB, which would guarantee up to 10 hours of video.
Once that has been installed, it’s time to get started. Navigation is simple and limited to four sections that are accessible by clicking directly on the icons around the center button. That round center button is then used to start and stop recording. The Playfull is really so simple that you don’t even really need a guidebook to get started. (But if you like taking a look at the manual anyway, don’t worry. One is included.)
