Vado, Mino. Vado, Mino. And the winner is….

The Creative Labs Vado HD.

Leah and I have been cogitating on this purchase for a while, but seeing Danny’s Mino last weekend brought us closer to action (well, that and all the contractions Leah’s been having recently). If you’re wondering, the better (IMO) specs of the Vado weren’t the only things pushing me in that direction; this video comparing the output side by side was very persuasive.

Guess this means you can “look forward” to more video here at avablog (and its sister/brother blog).

    Very nice.. didn’t even know about the Vado, and I looked at these things for a while. Did you see the Sony Webbie pocket sized Mino clone?

    Then I realized that the only thing I wanted to video tape was my cat when she misses the jump to the table, and I wasn’t ready to commit that much time to it.

    Creative sent me an email noting Vado HD is on sale for $175 for the camera or $199 for the camera and a bunch of accessories. I own both the original (“standard definition”) Vado and the Vado HD. Both shoot great video and are super easy to use. Perfect for tossing in my bag wherever I go. I have tried the Flip and Kodak. Creative's Vado edges both of them out IMHO. Great little pocket cams.
