Summary: I ordered both the Vado and the Flip Video F350B in Dec. 2009. I kept the pink Vado by Creative for myself, and I gave the Flip to my 8 year old son for Christmas. I've played with both, and the Flip is easier to use. The video quality looks the same to me. Neither is an HD camera, but they are so portable that one or both will likely replace the digital video cam that I rarely take anywhere.
Excerpt: In the Video I am reviewing a Flip Mino Camcorder.Basically I made this video just to tell you all my opinion about the camera before you go spend you money.I dont like the camera because of a couple if reasons.The Camera freezes alot and it also doesn't focus really well when zoomed up close on objects.
Excerpt: I give this one a 7/10. It is one of the smallest and easiest to use HD video cameras on the market, although Flip has room for improvment. It only holds 60 minutes of HD video, and does not take still pictures. However, you can capture still pictures from movies using their software. It's a great camera for on the go recording, but if you move it around too much while recording it can be a bit blurry. But. put it on a tripod, and it makes for one great video recording!
Pros: Small and Portable, HD 720 Recording, Good software included
Cons: No ability for taking still pictures, Movement can cause blurry video, only 4GB or 60 minutes of storage, not expandable.
If you’re in the market for a new compact camcorder, I’d have to recommed the Flip Mino HD.

Excerpt: The Flip Mino is compact and lightweight. It doesn't drop frames like the Kodak Zi6 does, and the image is nice and sharp. The colors are very true-to-life. Overall, this is an excellent little camera.
Excerpt: The Flip Mino is an extremely user friendly camcorder, that offers even the most incompetent user an enjoyable experience. The resolution of the video taken is incredibly crisp, and the sound quality provided from the omni-directional microphone is excellent. The Mino stores 60 minutes of video (2 gb), and allows easy upload to youtube myspace and aolvideo, via a flip-out usb connection.
Pros: Extremely user friendly, Compact, No cables required
Cons: Larger storage space, Different storage file type
