Direct Something Wonderful with the Kodak Playfull Video Camera10:11 am
I've never had a video camera before, but now with a burgeoning online presence, I felt a real need to be able to capture some things on video as opposed to just writing about it or taking a myriad of photos. And with all the cool things I get to do - interview celebrities, hang out with chefs and taste their wicked food - I wanted to capture these things in real time.
I sussed out a lot of affordable handhelds and I choose the Kodak Playfull Video Camera because it has incredible features that are insanely easy to use, all in one cute, compact little package.
I love that this Full 1080p HD video camera comes with a "share' button. You can email your video to your friends or your Kodak Pulse Digital Frame or upload directly to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and other sites in just seconds (a built-in USB arm makes it lightning fast). That's not only a fun feature, it comes in handy for work events too!
There are some neat editing dimensions too, like on-camera editing lets you trim and extract still pictures from video and 4 effects that you can add to give your video a whole new look like B&W, sepia, high saturation and a 70's vibe that will no doubt get your video noticed.
Thanks to built-in digital image stabilization, your videos will look less blurry, no matter how green you are at this. Are you going to be shooting in the sun? Not a problem with the LCD glare shield. Need more room? The expandable SD/SDHC card slot holds up to 32 GB, so go ahead and record your cover of "Party Rock Anthem" for YouTube.
The only difficult decision you have to make is what colour do you want - Silver, Blue-Silver, Purple-Silver or Blue-Black?
