Creative Vado HD in Stores

As promised, Creative this morning marked the US in-store date for its Vado HD pocket camera. The 720p-capable recorder aims to beat the Flip Mino HD on features with HDMI video output, twice as much storage at 8GB and a larger two-inch preview LCD. Creative uses H.264 encoding that should give it four hours with Flip-level encoding or two hours in a claimed better HD+ capture mode.

The company touts an equal two-hour battery life and tries to provide a similarly uncomplicated editing experience with a direct upload utility for Box.net, Photobucket and YouTube as well as a separate Muvee tool for the final editing itself.

Creative normally matches the Flip Mino HD's pricing but is deliberately undercutting its rival with a $200 sale price on the Vado HD, which ships only in black.

    Looks great!

    I've got the original Vado and have liked it for the price. BTW, its been on sale for $79.99 plus some accessories and shipped free. Possibly a great steal for Xmas. I just ordered the Vado HD and am looking forward to it. Creative is discounting it $30 as an introductory price. Likely to beat the Mino.
