Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam


Creative's Vado Pocket Video Cam is slim, keenly priced, and has a unique trick up its sleeve.

Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam


Sleek and slim design. Low price. Large screen. Rechargeable battery. Easy-to-use software

Poor uploaded video quality. Subpar mic

Creative's Vado improves on its prototype, the Flip Ultra mini camcorder, in a number of ways, including design and price, but its choppy video quality may be too much to overlook.

Creative Vado HD Review


As with the original Creative Vado, we feel that the $229 Vado HD bests its competitors in many categories--slimness, internal storage, and the inclusion of both an HDMI port and cable. Our 720p video showed an impressive amount of detail, however, the...

Slim, lightweight design, Detailed 720p video with smooth zoom action, 8GB internal storage, Includes an HDMI cable

Relatively expensive, Video is dimmer than competitors', Audio consistently cuts out before the video ends, Onboard software doesn't run on Macs

Creative Vado HD review


The three-way tussle between Kodak, Flip and Creative for the pocket camcorder crown has reached boiling point. After Kodak's Zi6 had the temerity to offer 720p recording, its competitors have been forced to introduce hi-def models – hence the imminent...

Creative Vado HD Pocket Camcorder Review


Although small in size, the Creative Vado is an easy grab-and-go camera. The buttons are easy to use, the battery life is long and it's fun shooting big HD clips for such a small price.

Small, Easy to use, Great included accessories, Good battery life

No image stabilization, No expandable memory slot

Creative VADO Review


Overall, if you're not looking for great video quality, and want to shell out Rs 7,000 for convenience of point and record, the VADO will keep you happy.

Schicker HD-Pocket-Camcorder: Creative Vado HD


Mit seiner soliden 720p-Videoleistung und einer Reihe nützlicher Funktionen fügt sich der Creative Vado HD nahtlos in die Riege der Mini-HD-Camcorder ein. Ob er sich gegen die starke Konkurrenz behaupten kann, bleibt abzuwarten.

solide 720p-Videoleistung, ultraflaches Design, herausnehmbarer Akku, einfache Bedienung, Hochladen von Videos auf YouTube und Photobucket per Knopfdruck, Mini-HDMI-Kabel zur Ausgabe von 1080i-Videos über einen HD-Fernseher

kein Speicherkartensteckplatz, Mac-Benutzer müssen Video-Dateien manuell kopieren, Weißabgleich arbeitet nicht ganz exakt, Farben wirken überzeichnet

Creative Vado HD – Mini-Camcorder für Urlaubserinnerungen?


Verarbeitung, Ergonomie, Videoqualität, HDMI-Port

Fotoqualität, Verbaute Speichergröße, Kein Blitz, Akkulaufzeit

Die Creative Vado HD ist sicherlich dann ein nützlicher Camcorder, wenn es mal schnell gehen soll in Sachen Festhalten von Urlaubsmomenten und Co. Schnappschüsse sind nicht zu gebrauchen, die Qualität der Fotos ist mangelhaft, dagegen können sich die...

Creative Vado è il chiaro esempio di come Creative non produca solo lettori multimediali ma anche videocamere di buona qualità. Sottile e leggera, è una videocamera tascabile, con un peso di appena 84 grammi, che consente di registrare filmati video...
