August 23, 2010, By Alex Ion

Kodak have just added to their digital video camera portfolio with the new Kodak Playtouch 1080p pocket camcorder.

Not just a sleek and stylish addition with a pocket-size design, the new Kodak Playtouch has the muscle to impress. The camera features a rather large 3-inch capacitive touchscreen so that you can browse videos or images, has built-in stabilization when shooting full 1080p HD video for clarity and precision, LCD glare shield, and an external microphone jack.

On top of that, the new Kodak Playtouch also comes with on-camera editing, has HDMI out so that you can connect it directly to your HDTV and play movies and images without using a computer.

But one of the most interesting features is Kodak’s exclusive Share Button that allows users to tag videos and pictures directly on the camera, and eases up the uploading to popular social networking sites (once the camera is connected to a computer via USB).
