Creative VADO detailed review

Pocket sized video


Anybody who sees the Creative VADO for the very first time will confuse it with a portable media player. Don’t. This sleek and stylish metallic silver body hides a portable video recorder. It allows you to capture videos easily and quickly.


To start with, the Creative VADO comprises of a non-auto focus camera, with which you can record videos at a resolution of 640 x 480. It features 2 GB of memory, and this is non-expandable, which is a serious turn-off. At its resolution, though, this translates to about 2 hours of video recording.


Just like any other camcorder, the VADO also gives two options to record video, both at the same VGA resolution. When using High Quality mode, you can capture about 1 hour of video. In Standard Play mode you can get about two hours of video. Battery life is good, so you will run out of memory way before you run out of charge. Obviously, at VGA resolutions, recorded videos look pixellated, and you can make out the difference between High Quality and Standard Play recording modes. The convenience of being able to pull something out of your pocket, start recording and then put it away just as easily.


The VADO allows recorded content to be transferred via USB, and you don’t need to lug around cables, because it has a retractable connector. Using a bundled utility, uploading video to YouTube is as easy as pushing a button.
