Summary: $37, most basic camera available. seems a 'decent' build although on the 'disposable' side. no features - just point and shoot. Charges via USB cable. very poor audio quality.too large for 'covert' use however, because of size, fits well in hand. no motion detection.
Summary: This is a miserable little gizmo. I put mine on a small tripod and tried to interview my father about his war days. Not only was the focus much too soft, the sound is terrible, even from just a few feet! This is clearly for infinity focus (I think it's just set focus, not auto focus).
Summary: Only item included was the camcorder and a battery. Missing was: USB Extension Cable, HDMI Cable, and Silicon Skin. What a bummer! Yeah you have to hang the camcorder from the computer everytime you download or charge. I can see the USB breaking off the camcorder over many uses.
Summary: Buying a Vado HD camcorder is equivalent to buying a great car that has no wheels. While the camera itself serves its purpose well, the extremely poor software that comes with it is deplorable.The included software, called Vado Central, does allow you to watch your videos on your computer screen but...
Summary: I paid $199.99 for the unit, hoping that it would be a useful combination for project photos and site inspections. It is impossible to take shots outside without a lot of camera shake. The screen is impossible to read in direct sunlight so one does not know when it is recording or not.
