Top 10 stylish pocket camcorders from just £50

From SD to 1080p, there's one for any budget

Creative Vado

While the Creative Vado may look like a vintage MP3 player, don't let it's uninspiring plastic exterior fool you. This is a very cool gadget indeed, even though it perhaps doesn't quite look like it. The Vado collects both audio and video – the latter in VGA resolution (640x480). While this would look ghastly on a cinema screen, it's absolutely ideal for uploading to sites like YouTube and Facebook. For around £50 it's an absolute bargain.
