    I really like this new version of the vado HD. It is significantly smaller than the previous version, and in my opinion looks much nicer. The reason I have given it 4 stars rather than 5 is purely because of two minor annoyances. One is that capacity has dropped to 4GB from 8GB, and secondly that the lens angle is slighty (very slightly) less wide.

    Both of those I can forgive, as I never actually got anywhere near 4GB when I used the previous gen vado (1st gen). To my mind this captures slightly more detail, which would make it worth it alone. I love the smaller size, it makes it even more convenient to use. The buttons I like as well, no old fashioned pushing! More like the controls on the PS3, simply place your finger on them and they respond.

    The other thing I love, which is the same as previous versions, is how the software runs from the device. So I can use the vado central editing stuff wherever I go, without having to install it on a pc (it works on both macs and pcs).

    UPDATE:
    Having used this for a few weeks now I can confirm that video quality seems much improved. Am very impressed with the quality, and it wasn't like I was unhappy with the first gen version I had before this. Also the battery seems to last longer, although I suspected that my last one was particularly bad. Have found the camera button very useful, so long as there is good light - as there is no flash.

    I can't add much more to whatever else was said on the positive aspect of this item. However, to the negatives i'd say; check the video settings - it might be set on NTSC by default and not Pal. Correction means better colours as I can testify. As for build? It's well made but not built for chucking about.

    Overall; a nice little toy with an excellent performance for the price.

    Very handy cam. Nice pictures with good quality for a cheap cam. Useful for shoot-and-share videos, as a video notebook to keep always in your pocket.
    I like the design and the funcions.

    I was so much looking forward to receiving this promising little camera, but my disappointment was immense. The reviews I have read were good. I spent time looking and took the plunge. I assumed that the picture quality would be better than my old 1.3 megapixel JVC camcorder. Not so.....The colours are all wrong, the transition from light to dark (or vice versa) is so slow. My poor cream coloured dog looked artificial in the video, especially when using the 2x zoom. We are talking 2x zoom here, not 30x!!! the quality is bad without the zoom, when it is on, it is horrific. The pixelation is more than evident. Playback looks basic at best on both my 42" Plasma and my 22" TFT PC monitor. The quality of the housing is fragile. It will scratch easily and I have seen people say the silver sides damage very easily. The good things, well its light. The lcd is better than I expected. The software is built in and good enough. The sound is better than I had read on reviews. The underlying problem for me was quality. I will not be making a move for a pocket HD camera any time soon. My old mini tape camcorder out performs this new tech by a long way, apart from not going into my pocket. Perhaps I was expecting too much.

    A really cracking pocket camera! I bought it as back-up for my main camcorder as it is so much easier to carry about at all times.
    It is easy to use and the quality and features are excellent for this type of camcorder and the price wasn't bad either!
    Playback can be through a HDMI system via the supplied cable or through an AV system (older tv's which have the red, yellow and white audio/video connections)but this cable is not supplied.
    There were few minor issues when I first started using this camcorder which could have been resolved with a more in-depth user guide. These involved 'playback all and delete all'. The solution was rectified after a visit to the Creative customer support web-site. The touch-type controls are very sensitive but there is a lock facility, which when activated in any mode, does not allow any other control to be used until it is taken off. It is turned on by pressing and releasing the on/off button quickly and is turned off by doing the same.(A small lock symbol is displayed). Again this is not mentioned in the user guide but is a very useful feature.
    I did have problems finding the correct AV cable for it. I bought a cable that was advertized to work with this model but it didn't. I did find one eventually and it's been great.
    All in all, after resolving the above issues, I have been really impressed and pleased with this bit of kit and would recommend it. It was great value for money compared to other pocket camcorders in the price range but if your thinking of buying one shop about!! The price varies from around £50 to £130 so be careful!

    Bought this camera for my son last July, fault developed with the screen, making it impossible to use. The online technical service wouldn't recognise the serial number or model number, emails sent to ask for help met with a point blank refusal to service the camera, absolutely no explanation for this refusal. I had a similar experience previously with Creative when my Zen mp3 player broke down. It took months to get a reply and service. This time I suspect there will be no further reply to my requests for help. Disgraceful! I won't be buying anything Creative ever again.
