All the film is done digitally, and it has a pretty wimpy resolution of 640 x 480. You can see what a video looks like after the jump. It also does stills at 1280 x 960, and it is noticeably smaller than an 8mm camera. There is also no sound of 8mm motors working.

The Capture is the same size, but adds multitouch and the option to go wireless. This is done with an add-on set of dongles (one for the tablet, one for the computer) and a battery pack. This pack costs another $40 on the $100 price of the Capture. The $200 Create is essentially a bigger version of the Capture, with multi-touch, wireless option and a large 8.5 x 5.4-inch touch area (and a 13.8 x 8.2-inch). (at Wired)
