Summary: If you want a simple point'n'shoot camcorder,you may be considering this camcorder from a name we've come to trust for quality.Avoid and spend your money elsewhere! The picture quality is disgraceful,grainy and unwatchable.Only for the fact,the kids use it as a toy,i'd have put it straight onto a well-known auction site.No lens cover and a cheap velvet carry bag complete the poor package.Toshiba may have sold a camcorder but they won't ever get any of my money...
Summary: I bought this camera a few days ago, I'm a film student and like to make short videos in my free time, I thought this camera was ideal and for the price was awesome! How wrong was I, I knew it wouldn't be the best camera ever but I did not expect how poor the quality was even on 1080p when I got it out of the bag I thought it looked really cool, after charging it for a few minutes I decided to film something, I went into my living room which had a lot of light, and plus...
Summary: I bought this camcorder, expecting to get reasonably good HD footage. Taking it out of the box it looked quite impressive compared to other camcorders I'd been looking at getting. I chose Toshiba because it had a good reputation and this camcorder in particular had good reviews. Testing the camcorder when I got it out of the box it appeared to be easy to handle, easy to view on the viewfinder, and I was looking forward to seeing the footage on my computer and eventually...

Summary: I ordered this "HD" Camcorder and was utterly disgusted by it, the quality and build of this piece of kit is horrible and plastic, it feels cheap but thats not the worst part, when i shot some video the focus took forever to sort itself out and what i was shooting wasn't even moving!
Summary: I'm not sure why there's so many good reviews for this camera when the quality is little better than a Webcam. Daytime it's passable, but at Night with indoor lighting (no matter how bright) it's really poor. You'd be shocked, I'm not joking when I compare it to a webcam!
Summary: IS THIS H20 THE WORST CAMCORDER EVER? We were impressed by the Toshiba Camileo H20 demo video on their web site, so we bought one for my birthday last June to replace my Exilim EX-S600 (which is very good except for the illogical feature that the optical zoom is disabled when in 30fps Movie Mode). We immediately liked the H20's stunning 1080p stills but then we tried it in Movie Mode - Oh dear!
Pros: Stunning 1080p stills
Cons: Useless .MOVs; forgets its settings when lid closed; broke down after 2 months; useless service support.
Summary: I bought this camera fully understanding that it wasnt a pro level camera of any sort, but still was very disappointed. Apart from mine actually having a fault for which I received a full refund whereby it turned its self on and off constantly, draining the battery before i could use it, I found it total lack of ability to disable poor features like autofocus, auto aperture and the fact that the stabiliser doesnt work in hd mode very poor indeed.
Summary: I wanted a simple camera that would take reasonable footage and be able to be edited quickly and easily. I previously had a Digital 8 Sony camcorder and it was so time consuming waiting for the tape to transfer its data to the PC in real time that I didnt use it much. My problem with this camera (which I should have realised before I bought it I guess) is that it only records in .MOV format. This is an Apple format, that plays in Quicktime player.
Summary: I don't know if anyone else had this problem, but I was sent this item twice, the second time a replacement, and neither one of them worked! It simply would not turn on, even after a 15 hour charge! Don't waste your money. Pay cheap, pay twice. Spend a little bit more and get a decent one!
Summary: Io la Camileo H20 l'ho comprata... Certo, per una cifra così non mi aspettavo una videocamera professionale... Però è un vero disastro. Difficoltà di messa a fuoco. Stabilizzatore d'immagine poco efficace. Non memorizza le impostazioni ed ogni volta che la riaccendi devi reimpostarle. In interni (anche con luci alogene potentissime 400-600 W) riprende malissimo con un rumore elettronico di fondo esagerato (sembra di usare un banale telefonino)... Insomma.
Pros: Compatta. Facile da usare
Cons: Scarsa qualità dell'immagine - Difficoltà messa a fuco
