The Kodak PlaySport Zx3 has won the PC Advisor Awards 2011 Best Camcorder award.

Ruggedised products can end up being unwieldy and unattractive. Not so the excellent Kodak PlaySport Zx3, which is slim and pocketable but robust enough to submerge in up to 10ft of water or leave out in the elements. Perfect for outdoor pursuits, it offers 720p video capture and has a 5Mp stabilised stills camera.

Runners up in the Best Camcorder are Canon Legria HF R106, Creative Vado [3rd generation], Flip MinoHD [2nd generation], Panasonic SDR-S50.
