First Look @ Vado HD



The new Vado HD looks alot like the Vado, which is a good thing as many people liked the sleek look of it. What we see above is of the black model (we hear there are 2 other colors), everything else looks the same besides the fact that the lens is now protruding out of the body (focus function perhaps?). The Vado HD will retail at SGD$299 which if we convert directly to US dollar would be $196. That is considerably cheaper than the Flip Mino HD which retails at USD$230. We have seen video footages of the Vado HD, and now we know the price and all I can say is so far so good! We will have more of the Vado HD for you in the days to come ;)

I am not a Mac user but if they can add in Mac support, it will be a sure killer product since its price is lower, quality is higher and look cool. Vado is already easy to use and with replaceable batteries, output to TV. I am not sure if there is some optical zoom but if there is, it will be even great but unlikely I think.

Actually, the Vado can already be used on a mac. Once you connect the Vado to the mac, iMovie will detect it and load all the clips onto it.

Very exciting - I guess you must work for creative and this looks like a great product. Really want to know more - tell the world (or at least us in here) anything as soon as you can!

I'm so glad you posted this! I saw the flip hd and was tempted to get it then I discovered this and it appears to be much better. Hopefully, a special someone can get this for me for x-mas. :)

Flip HD is selling extremely well in US. Creative has to quickly launch this, allow pre-order in websites like Amazon or lose out even if it has better quality. The vast majority of potential buyers is not aware of Vado HD coming soon.

I'm thinking of getting one of these to Record Ariel Rebel from www.ArielRebel.com

"For those special moments a Big Camera can't be seen"

Should be able to get some good Hidden in Store footage with the Vado its small and has a Wide lens that will help...!!!

I've looked at the Kodak Zi6... But the Colors are too Punchy, The lens is decently wide.. Sound is too Aggressive.. you hear every motor humm and the skin looks off... not good for Sexy Videos! And were all going to use it once or twice for some sort of Sexy Nude Video. It has a very good screen size 2.4" and the external SDHC cards is a plus... on board memory is almost non existant 128 megs.

The MinoHD... Has better neutral colors and shadows, that you can punch up later and a microphone jack for better sound... but the screen is to small, battery life is only 1 hour. I would need 2 of these to be able to shoot outdoors... imagine your, shooting the perfect hot scene, and "NO MORE BATTERIES" that would suck!

So i'm waiting on the Vado HD, It has a Wide Lens...YAH... so you get more in the shot when closer to the subject, good screen size helps to see what your getting in the shot. 2 hours of battery time is excelent.
Also has 8 Gigs of internal memory. I've scene some vids of it online.. they look good but there's no proof it came from the Vado.. it could have been recorded by anything or anyone... you need to see the setup to have the proof. ;) The only down side is it doesn't have 720p60 only 30 frames/sec. But then again the Zi6 which has 60 frames... automaticly switches to 15 frames per sec in low light.. not to smart.

Here's a link to Amazon of all places with some specs and Pre-Order... for USA Only.. so No Help For Me.

Ill post reviews when I get one in my hands... and you all can go see ArielRebel.com so see the new footage.. lol

I'll also post video reviews on Myspace ArielRebelonline or
TheAdventuresOfArielRebel.

Take Care
Hope you all get one for X-Mas!

Max.
