Toshiba Camileo S20: HD 1080p Camcorder Slims Down
September 3rd, 2009
I’m really digging the svelte looks of the newly announced Toshiba Camileo S20 camcorder. Not only does the compact video camera feature a super-slim 17mm thick body, it can capture high-definition video in glorious 1080p (1920 x 1280) resolution.
A rotating 3″ display folds flat onto the side of the camcorder when not in use, and all video is stored on an SDHC card to keep things really down to size. The Camileo S20 offers a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor, and while it doesn’t have any optical zoom, its 4x digital zoom should get the job done for basic home video needs. The camera also sports an HDMI output, and a YouTube quick key for one-touch uploads to the ubiquitous video site.
No word yet on a release date, but the MSRP for the S20 is £119.99 (about $195 USD), which makes it just a comparable in price to the 720p Flip Mino HD.
