Creative Vado HD (3rd Gen) Review

AT S$80 cheaper than its previous sibling, Creative's third-generation Vado pocket video camera has enough souped-up features to make it a good buy.

It boasts touch-sensitive buttons and a lens that is more flush with the body profile - stuff missing in the previous series.

You can also manually adjust the exposure, so as to bump up the brightness in dark spots or tone down the glare of the sun when shooting . outdoors.

There is also a jack for an external microphone. So if you do not want to rely on its built-in microphone, the jack offers that option.

The latest Vado allows still captures but resolution is at just one megapixel. Even basic cameraphones boast at least two megapixels.

What is puzzling is that the built-in memory is a step backwards - 4GB or half that of its second-generation sibling. This allows just one hour instead of two - of shooting at best quality.

As far as I am concerned, there has also been no step-up in the quality of footage compared to the previous generation.

Video quality is fine in bright locations but in dimly lit places, the footage is somewhat grainy.

Image stabilization is still absent, so you would still need a tripod for shake-free pictures and video.

The package comes with the new Vado Central 3.0 software, stored in the camera's memory. This time, there is also a Mac version.

Apart from basic video-editing smarts, Vado Central now lets you upload to Facebook and Twitter as well.

Final say
Superb ease of use. though tile smaller built-in memory is a bit of a let-down.

It doesn't do quite enough to distinguish itself from the competition, it does offer some nice improvements over earlier Vado HD models that keep it relevant in the pocket camcorder space.
