With the holidays just around the corner, capturing those precious moments on film would be a wonderful experience to many of us. Capturing those precious moments with a camcorder is one of the best ways to have those precious memories stored in our hearts forever. Creative has a solution to all of this with its brand new mini-camcorder the Vado HD 3rd Gen.
The Vado HD3rd Gen joins into the crowd of an increasing population of pocket camcorders in the market. This includes the Flip line, as well as old favorites like the Kodak Zi8 Pocket Video Camera and the Sony Webbie HD Camera. Pocket camcorders like these have a total weight between 3.5 and 4 ounces that offer consumers one touch functionality.
The Vado HD 3rd Gen comes with a slightly slicker and unique design than that of its predecessors. The Vado HD 2nd Gen, offers only an ample 4 gigabytes of internal storage. But manufacturer Creative says that 4 gigabytes of memory can offer up to two hours of 720p resolution (1280 by 720) video.
The 3rd Gen has been revamped to produce more than the usual. It now has the ability to snap still shots of resolution of 1280 by 720 and a 3.5mm jack for consumers to connect it to a optional stereo mic which enables them to improve audio performance. The downside of the photo resolution is terrible, considering the Kodak Zi8 can manage to snap still images at an awesome 5.3 megapixels.
Creative also promises that the 3rd Generation Vado can capture images at low light thanks to the new manual exposure option. The manual exposure feature promises to be able to optimize video and make it clearer and vibrant. Another great feature to the Vado line would be its battery life and removable feature allowing you to purchase extra batteries.
