Kodak's New Outdoor Camera Can Hold Its Breath for Two Hours


Sure, Kodak is quickly becoming a penny stock. But that doesn't mean it can't still produce a solid and rugged outdoor camcorder like the Playfull Waterproof.

The Playfull Waterproof is a beefed-up addition to the Playfull line. It's waterproof down to ten feet (three meters) for up to two hours, as well as shock-proof, surviving falls from as high as of 5 feet, and dust/grit-proof to boot. It even uses a white balance that automatically adjusts to the on-screen subject for dusty conditions and employs a basic image stabilizer.

Granted, stepping down to 720 resolution from the original Playfull's 1080 may seem like a hard pill to swallow, the waterproof version does offer a significantly broader venue of possible filming locations. The Playfull Waterproof will be available later this fall and will retail for either $100 for just the camera or $120 for the camera/4GB memory card combo. [Kodak via Electronista]
