Toshiba Camileo S30 review

 

The range of pocket camcorders available seems to be growing by the day and there are now plenty of options on offer. Toshiba recently expanded its range with the introduction of the Camileo S30 and P20 which both sport slimline, pocket-friendly...

Great design, easy to use, lots of recording and photo options, fold-out screen

Video/image quality isn't great, convoluted menu navigation, a bit pricey

Sports a nice design, but rival models offer better image quality at lower prices

Can Toshiba give pocket Internet camcorders something to think about?

More features than pocket Internet camcorders ; 3in touchscreen ; Full HD resolution

Low light performance not as good as pocket Internet models ; Digital zoom only

The Toshiba Camileo S30 is a full HD camcorder with a diminutive form. At 59mm x 106mm x 19mm (W/H/D), the S30 is about the size of a large box of matches. It breaks away from the traditional camcorder shape, as it more resembles a phone camera than a...

The S30 isn’t the most feature packed camcorder you are going to find, but it is one of the smallest full HD camcorders on the market. We loved the ease of use and portability of this device. The build quality is good and for normal un-zoomed recording...

In this fast moving world, we don’t always have time to setup a tripod, load a heavy video camera, adjust ISO and white balance – sometimes you just want to video things

Comparative to its price, there really aren’t that many things wrong with the Toshiba Camileo S30, however there are a few considerations you should make before buying. The zoom is digital only, as is the image stabilization – so if you intend on use...

The Toshiba Camileo S30 is a full HD camcorder. We take it for a spin to see if it's picture perfect.

At the end of the day, the Toshiba Camileo S30 is a good device and at its recommended retail price of R1,499 it borders on excellent.

Some months on..

 

Like other reports I have read about this Camera, id does not always switch on and I have to remove the battery and replace it and then it fires up. Odd as contacts are connecting. Like others have found, it is almost as expensive to get a second...

Holiday of a Lifetime in Lapland - no photos!

 

Returned this product after we got back from taking our children to Lapland. Holiady was 10 months in the planning and cost a fortune. Unfortunately it takes appalling photos and the recording function only worked when it felt like it. Not knowing...
