Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam

PC Magazine
13 July 2009
  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Sleek and slim design. Low price. Large screen. Rechargeable battery. Easy-to-use software.
  • Cons: Poor uploaded video quality. Subpar mic.

Creative Vado HD Review

LAPTOP Magazine
9 June 2009
  • Summary: 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.

The Creative Vado HD pocket video camera's slim rectangular design very closely resembles an Apple iPod

  • Summary: We really liked the Creative Vado HD camcorder’s design, especially the tactile silicon rubber body armour that prevents butterfingers. We were also pleased to find an HDMI output for which the associated cable is supplied, and the option to shoot in standard as well as high definition.
  • Pros: 8GB of storage, HDMI output
  • Cons: A/V cable is an optional extra, screen could be brighter

Creative Vado HD review

  • Excerpt: Creative's Vado HD is another pocket camcorder, like Flip's Mino HD and Kodak's Zi6. It's a little larger than the Mino HD, but smaller than the Zi6. The 22mm depth includes its small protruding lens; excluding the lens, it's a slender 16mm.

Creative Vado HD review

  • Excerpt: Creative flips Mino the bird with this HD-shooting, HDMI-outputting, battery-swapping, software-packing 8GB Flash memory camcorder . But how does it compare with the big boys? Read on…
  • Pros: The not-so-daft Vado is in the same league as Flip’s Mino HD. It isn’t quite a clone war: the Vado HD boasts twice the storage (8GB), a larger (two-inch) screen, removable battery and custom HDMI connector for instant plasma screen playback. The Vado also lets you watch or copy its pin-sharp clip...
  • Cons: Okay, so we’ve established that it’s HD, but it’s not exactly what we’d imagine hotshot directors would use – its colours are wobbly, motion’s juddery and audio is faint. Also there’s no video light, autofocus or zoom lens. But that’s to be expected for a budget camera. Although, with a price lik...

Creative Vado HD review

9 March 2009
  • Summary: 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 arrival of the Mino HD and now the Vado HD.
