Waterproof or not?

The Playsport model is not afraid to get wet. This audacious little camera can plunge up to 10 ft under water and capture the entire experience in full 1080p HD, the Zi8 model doesn't have any waterproofing at all.

Control mode

The controls on the devices are the same, but they are laid out a bit differently, only the Zi8 has macro mode, the Playsport doesn't have an external microphone port, but the Zi8 does.

USB Connection

The USB Connection works a bit differently on each camera. The Zi8 has a flip out USB port so you don't have to carry a cord around with you. The Playsport forgoes this feature (likely due to the waterproofing) and contains a microUSB port on the camera.
