The sweepstakes, being conducted through social network site Twitter, offers one prize: the Burton edition version of a Kodak Playsport Zx5 flash video camera. Launched back in August, the Playsport Burton Edition/Zx5 is a variant of the standard Playsport Zx5 that debuted almost a year ago at CES 2011. It differs from the standard Zx5 only in its color scheme and product bundle. The front and rear cover panels are white, with blue and purple accents on the front, and the bundle includes an HDMI cable, remote control, 4GB SDHC memory card, flexible "gripping" tripod and carry case with carabiner. The Burton Zx5 carries an MSRP of around US$200, about $20 more than the standard Zx5 version.

To enter the contest, you must tweet @KodakCameras with the hashtag #BurtonZx5, including a YouTube video link for a snowboarding video. The contest is open to residents of the contiguous US and Canada (except Quebec). US residents must be aged 18 or over at the time of entry, while Canadian residents must be past the age of majority for their province. More details including the full rules can be found on Kodak's A Thousand Words blog.
