Pocket Video Camera


Recommended Posts

For my next trip, I'm planning to get lots of video footage, but some of this content must be on "spy" mode with the camera on my front pocket, so I need one of these cameras that have the size of a cell phone. Up to US$250.


I've been reading some internet reviews and the Kodak Playsport Zx3 seems to be the best option, beating the Flip camcorders in almost every aspect.


If you know anything relevant about these cameras, please reply to this topic. The reward will come in a few months in my next trip report. :D

Make sure you have plenty of health insurance if your gonna use it in the gogo's :NoNo3:


Since I'm not a one man army like Sharkman, I do not plan to film inside forbidden places.


I just want to capture some spontaneous behavior and street/bar scenes without being noticed. For example, I noticed that the girls at Simon bar compex scream much more when you're not pointing a video camera to them.


PS: Sharkman, if you read this, consider "one man army" as a compliment, wish I had half of your size.

I bought the Kodak Zx3 Playsport.


It's very small (looks like a big cell phone) and was cheap, so I knew I couldn't expect much.


But it performs nicely on well-lit places and ok in the dark (although for the price it's very good), WAY better than the videos taken with my photo camera (Sony S950).


It's very discrete, you can film pretending you're talking on the "phone".


The bad point is that is has basically zero functions, you can't even pause while recording a video, if you stop and resume then it starts writing another file.


These were taken using this camera: http://www.pattaya-addicts.com/forum/topic/69276-augusta-street-in-sao-paulo-brazil/


Notice that it was a dark environment, recording from a moving car through a dirty and wet window.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
