It has a new CMOS image sensor, microphone, and autofocus capability for closer range and macro shots.

More hands-on photos here and the PlayFull too:

Yes, that was the 1st thing that caught my eye, as well a simular look to the Flip. I hope they aregoing forward in steps with external sd and battery.

@bollity, yes. Kodak says it is factory servicable/replaceable.

The currently removale battery in the Zx3 will only record for about 1:10. If they have a more form fitting larger internal battery that could record up to 3 hours (a 16GB SD card at 1080p), I actually like that, but I doubt it. I can't find anywhere how long the battery is supposed to last in the Zx5.
