Easy to use and and good quality
on 29 May 2011
The Vado HD 4Gb is very light and compact.Its about the size of an average mobile phone but very light.
Its very easy to use and great for carrying around in a pocket or handbag.
The quality of the video varies. In good light its excellent on the maximum HD settings.In low light conditions its ok. I find that if you mount the Vado on a small tripod it works well and you get far less camera shake which in turns help provide a smoother better quality video.Sound quality is acceptable and there is an audio in if you want to add an external microphone. I have found when its windy the mic picked it up and distorted the audio quality.
I like the simplicity of this product. Even those who are technically challenged will find this product easy to use. Its literally point and click.
Getting the videos of is a simple matter of just plugging it into a usb port and accessing the contents of the vado like a memory stick or you can run the inbuilt vado software and this allows simple editing and viewing of the videos taken and uploading to YouTube. Its only got 4gb of memory and you cant put an memory card in but nevertheless you can take about an hours worth of footage with it.
The Vado comes with a mini hd lead so you can connect it directly to HD TV. This worked brilliantly and is fabulous for playing back videos straight of the device.
