Touch controls are a deal breaker; otherwise nice.

Summary: The flush touch controls make it difficult to handle this playing card sized camera without inadvertently selecting a function you had no intention of selecting. The controls ("buttons") are more accurately described as a touch area with absolutely no feel or definition to them.
Summary: I owned the first generation of this camera, so when the lcd broke on the other one after an accident, I was pretty confident that I would love this one as well. Not so. The worst problem is the addition of the touch sensitive controls. It's very easy to accidentally push any of the buttons.
Summary: Vado is my favorite brand when it comes to pocket size "HD" camcorders, even at 720p and 30 fps the 2nd generation was one of my favorite for its crisp frames, very wide lens, and color contrast.
