Information about new waterproof camcorders is coming in frequent pace. New  Kodak PlaySport Zx3 pocket camcorder is quite impressive piece of waterproof electronics.  This audacious little camera can plunge up to 10 ft under water and capture the entire experience in full 1080p HD, also 720p. And you don’t need to worry about blurry footage when things get a little shaky. With built-in image stabilization, the KODAK PLAYSPORT will stay steady.

Main specs of PlaySport Zx3:

My conclusion:

Everything is very OK, but lens is not as wide as I’d like to see. In 1080 mode, lens focal length is 48 mm. I experienced, that on the boat You may need wider view angle, something like 24mm lens.
