My, but The Other Shoe keeps dropping, doesn't it? Creative had announced their own Mino-like pocket HD camcorder a while back, but the ship date was anybody's guess.
Well, if you had "Friday" in the office pool, you win the canned ham. UPS delivered it to me just as I was headed out the door. With the Vado and the Mino in my pocket, I shot a bunch of side-by-side comparisons.
I'll be posting another video with my opinions and conclusions a bit later, when I've had time to scrutinize and fuss a little more. Until then, check out these samples and see for yourself.
The specs are quite nice:
Twice as much memory as the Mino, replaceable battery pack, larger screen than the Mino, roughly the same size, wider-angle lens.
