""Eastman Kodak Company today introduced the new KODAK PLAYTOUCH Video Camera, a sleek and stylish addition to its award-winning digital video camera portfolio. The pocket-size KODAK PLAYTOUCH Video Camera features a 3-inch capacitive touchscreen so consumers can easily glide through their HD videos with the swipe of a fingertip. With new on-camera editing and Kodak's exclusive Share Button, the PLAYTOUCH Video Camera makes it easy for consumers to share their favorite moments with friends and family in full 1080p HD."

Kodak is one of the bigger players in the pocket video camera market - sheesh, we really need a catchy name for this category of camera - and the KODAK PLAYTOUCH looks like a significant improvement above previous generations. I'm not sold on the touch screen, though I see there's a single physical button - as long as that button starts and stops the recording, I'm OK with touch screen buttons being used for other features. Strangely, the press release doesn't mention the frame rate of the 1080p recording - I suspect it's either 24fps or 30fps. The on-camera editing and tagging videos for upload might be useful for some people. What I'd be more interested in are the details on the sensor itself - is the PLAYTOUCH any better in low-light than previous KODAK cameras? That's a key area of weakness for these cameras.

The remainder of the press release, and an image of the front of the PLAYTOUCH camera, is after the break. Read more...
