I am looking to buy a couple of video cameras that we need next week for a project. The more I read, the more I’m starting to think that I need to consider theCreative Vado HD camera over the old stand-by, the Flip Ultra or Mino HD. CNET had this to say.
On the plus side, the Vado has a rechargeable and removable battery… so I can buy a second one and make sure there’s always one charged. The Mino has no such feature. The Ultra has a rechargeable and removable battery AND you can put AA batteries in the camera if need-be. The downfall to the Ultra is that it’s larger in size.
I’ve always been a Flip guy… use one myself, and have been known to share them with my friends. I love the fact that you can put AA batteries in it if it goes dead while I’m shooting.
CNET says that the video quality of the Flip cameras is a bit better… but that’s not what this guy says. PC World tends to go with the Vado as well… except in low light situations.
So what to do? Well, there has to be someone in my trusted network who has experience with both of these cameras. I’m willing to take your word for it… I need to make this purchase in the next 7 days. THANKS for your help.
