Fooling around with the Kodak Playsport Zx5 in camera mode

Kodak Playsport Zx5 macro focus testing (click for larger)

While shooting some video with the Brenda’s Kodak Playsport Zx5 this past weekend I thought about the excellent autofocus camera on the new iPhone 4s and decided to test the macro focus on our my wife’s all-weather camcorder; if the lighting and distance is right, it does a pretty impressive job in camera mode. The above is about as close as I can focus and it selectively does a nice job of making the subject stand out from the background. (the above being a LucasPrince of Darkness – fuse from the MGB)


While I was in the garage (with the football game on … not really working), my dog Tootsie and I observed a bold fox strolling down our rear driveway toting his prize Sunday afternoon football “wing.”  It didn’t take long before a chase ensued having Tootsie bringing back the prize “wing” … hence the next couple of photos. (tinkering with the camera again)
