Kodak Playsport Zx5 adds Burton decals for snow business

Let today, 24 August 2011, be forever known as Camera Day! Never have we seen so much new camera news as we have today - even during the specialist trade convention Photokina. Now, it's Kodak's turn to get involved.

The company has added a Burton special edition of its Playsport Zx5 video camera range, featuring a more snow- and ski-friendly colour scheme and the moniker of one of the biggest brands in winter sports.

Bar the decals, however, the camera itself is identical to the one that Pocket-lint went hands-on with back at CES this January. It's Full HD (1080p), measures 58.2 x 111.9 x 17.7mm, records onto SD/SDHC cards and throws USB and HDMI connectivity into the mix. It can also take 5-megapixel stills and can record at 60-frames-per-second.

Costing £179, the Kodak Playsport video camera: Burton edition comes with a 4GB SDHC, remote control, HDMI cable and gripping tripod and carry case in the box. It'll be out this autumn, just in time for those skiing holidays.
