  • Summary: It is difficult to handle this camera without inadvertently selecting a function you had no intention of selecting. It is really messy. I returned the camera.

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. It is challenging to keep fingers off a touch area.

A downgrade from earlier versions.

  • 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. I'd read about this in reviews before I got the camera, but it ended up being way worse of a problem than I expected.

Why ?!?

  • Summary: Length:: 2:04 Mins 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. I was very glad to hear that the 3rd generation came out (due to some issues with the low sound quality, over-saturated colors, over-exposure of sky and other little nuances with the 2nd generation). Then i saw this... (!) The 3rd gen.
