The Flip Camera Is Dead! Meet A Worthy Replacement: The Kodak PlayTouch

Posted by postwire on 12, Apr, 2011

Cisco announced today that they are discontinuing the Flip Camera. Also, our favorite camera, the Kodak Zi8, has also been discontinued. We all know that every phone/tablet/iPod has a camera, but they are not good enough for business video. So what can we do?

The good news is that Kodak recently came out with the PlayTouch. The PlayTouch offers all the features the Zi8 offered, including 1080P HD video, a mic in, USB plug and play video transfer, as well as a few new features we like.

Watch the video below where I review the PlayTouch

Key Features Of The PlayTouch

  • Clipping/Trim Videos Right On The Camera – this is a huge time saver!
  • Microphone In Jack Can Also Be Headphone Jack (not both at the same time)
  • Same great quality video recording as the Zi8, including image stabilization
  • New Larger Touch Screen
  • Video Effects, Like Sepia, B/W and 70’s (whatever that means, maybe it puts bell bottoms on everyone?)

We’ve always recommended the Kodak Zi8 for our customers, and we’ve begun to recommend the PlayTouch. Until portable device cameras get better, we’ll be sticking with these.

Let us know if you have any questions. Comment below.
