Toshiba Camileo S20: HD 1080p Camcorder Slims Down

by


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.

    The TOSHIBA Camileo S20

    Wonerful little piece of equipment!

    Nevertheless a few improvements could be useful.

    When first used You don´t find the Battery to remove the insulation tape!
    The cover is so slippery, the hint in manual “push & slide to open” would be helpful as the picture is too poor.
    Of course, users of mobile phones know how to do this! ;-)
    Trying to charge ,You might look for for a charging-LED, in vain!
    Next, you easily touch or cover the flashlamp,the mic or even the lens which leaves greasy fingerprints
    resulting in poor images.
    Next: If you now want to erase such a picture it says: Delete: No–ALL–YES-
    the order should be: NO–YES–ALL ; otherwise you delete all accidentally!?
    It is pretty slippery as I sayed before, so if the silicon material used for the red inlay”Camileo” was
    used for the front edge and the jack cover in the back it would rest much better in your hand!
    This was my first impression and is to be understood in a positive way, because nothin is perfect!
    Otherwise it is really a beautiful and good camera!
    Thanks to TOSHIBA!
    Kind regards Gerry!
