Last year I reviewed the Kodak Zi8, an impressive pocket-sized video camera that offers HD video recording. Recently, I had a chance to review another Kodak video camera—the Playsport Zx3. This camera, which was loaned to me for the review, is another HD video camera that fits in your pocket, and this one is waterproof down to 10 feet.
