Creative today announced their second-generation line of Vado HD pocket camcorders. The most interesting tidbit is the new Mac-friendlier Vado Central software, which allows for easy direct transfer to iMovie. Even better, that software will also work for older Vados.
AU: Creative Australia is currently selling the 8GB Vado HD on its website at a reduced price of $363.59 + GST (normally $454.50 + GST). [Product Page]-EH
The hardware itself doesn't seem much changed; the Vado HD will still be available in a $US200 8GB version and will be joined by a new 4GB version priced at $US180. There'll also be two new colours, but the big news is really the software. The two new Vado HDs are available for pre-order today from Creative (though they don't seem to be up on the site quite yet), and the software should be released early this month. [Creative]
