The Vidster is clearly a ‘catch ‘em young’ type of product. A small $80.00 plastic…cough…camcorder designed for youngsters. Quite why kids would want to mess with a grey plastic tacky-toy when they can happily drop the real thing that you’ve forgotten to move to a higher shelf is beyond me. Another unmarried marketing man’s dream?

 It comes with a 32MB starter card, which will hold about six to eight minutes of video, at 320-by-240 resolution at 15 frames per second. It will also capture 1.3-megapixel still shots. The Vidster has a microphone, but no optical zoom–just a 2X digital zoom. The 1.1-inch color viewfinder is larger than any you’d find on a, uh, real camcorder, but the Vidster doesn’t have a swing-out LCD. The camera runs on four AA batteries.
