    Creative today announced Vado Pocket Video Cam, a $99 pocket video camera aimed at the YouTube crowd. Small enough to fit easily in a pocket, purse or the palm of a hand, the Vado Pocket Video Cam is said to deliver "a breakthrough in video camera design." Available in silver or hot pink, it weights less than 90g and comes with a 2-inch color LCD screen, 640-by-480 VGA video resolution, 2x digital zoom, and 2GB of onboard memory, enough to record up to two hours of VGA video (640x480 MPEG-4 or AVI at 30fps). The Vado also has its own built-in software which enables users to copy the video to the PC or easily upload it to YouTube or Photobucket. Priced at $100, the Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam is available now.

    Nice job Creative! I'd be willing to bet these are big sellers. I for one will be looking into one to try out. :cool:

    Quite simply, Apple iPod Video, needs to have a record function.

    creative

    As far as i am concerned Creative can go shuv up it's A**. Considering it's lack of customer support, just look at what it has done with it's customers in regards to the X-Fi Soundcards.

    Never gonna buy any of their products ever again.

    Sorry for the rant.

    Nice product!

    For under $100, a lot of people would want to pick it, many buy video-cams for the sole purpose of video-blogs.

    We didn't really need to hear that from you. I would say that creative in a way is two different companies when it comes to their sound cards and other multimedia products...

    Imho this is an excellent product, its about time we had one of these!

    Very true. I apologize for that.

    I am sure it is good product for the youtube generation and will probably be a hit.

    a bump for this old thread as Creative just announced Vado HD.
    Which makes the original one look pale in comparison.
    Just look at that recording:

    Details for everyone who, like me, foams over the specs:
