Kodak Playfull review by Customer
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Small Camera-For the grab and go video shot, March 15, 2011 By John VI
For a basic 1080 HD digital Hand-held cam, I think its better than the flip. It accepts up to 32gig SD cards, perhaps more since it has the high capacity support. It’s smaller than the flip, and its more easily portable as well………Read the full Kodak PlayFull HD Video Camera review here.
