1. Waterproof. This is one of the main features that I like. I recently shot a video of my nephew underwater and sliding on a Slip N Slide. it looked really cool. Also, you an submerge the camera up to 10ft. Note, to make your video look better underwater, make sure to switch the Underwater Correction feature in the menu.
2.Quality. The quality is beautiful. You can switch the resolution to shoot full HD or for web. It really depends on how you will showcase your film.
3. Shockproof. I have shaky hands, so a lot of my films are a bit shaky. The kodak comes with an automatic stabilizer that actually works. It helps me a lot.
4. Pictures. The kodak comes with a 5 MigaPixel resolution. The pictures look great. Note, it doesn't come with flash, so it doesn't due well under low light
5. External Memory. I like knowing that if i'm going to run out of memory I can easily add a new SDHC card. I don't like camera that come with ONLY internal memory, meaning I can only shoot for 30 mins. I like options. I bought an 8Gb card and I have hours of footage. WooHoo!
