Image Stabilization. Really?

Toby, Amazon
3 July 2012
  • Summary: This is a basic camcorder from a brand that usually turns out some good products. I think they missed the boat on this camera though. I'm just an average user, but I was not impressed with this camera and decided to return it. The camera will record in 1080p HD, but the recorded video did not look HD unless the camera was motionless and it was focused on a motionless object. In that situation, the video quality was great but then that's not how you use a *video* camera.

Disappointed

Craig Snedeker, Amazon

  • Summary: Before I buy cameras, I look them up on YouTube to see how the footage comes out by people who actually own the camera. I saw some really impressive footage! I was amazed, so we bought it and it came next week. But I was very disappointed with the quality of this camera. It exposes the footage very nicely, but has trouble focusing on moving subjects (for example, someone riding a horse) and is very jittery. Also, the camera doesn't have good stabilization.

Camileo H30

Mojolemger, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the Camileo H30 because of its ability to shoot Full HD. Well, for being HD the image quality is poor at best. If you move even a little bit while recording, the image jellos quite a bit. It has very poor low light performance as well. Here's a short list of pros and cons. Pros: Records to SDHC memory cards. 3 inch touch screen. Small and portable. Cons: Very poor low light performance. Poor image quality. Over saturated, cheap-looking footage.

Cheap, but doesn't do the job

Mark Turner, Amazon

  • Summary: My sister had the smaller handheld Camileo HD camcorder and really liked it. However I wanted optical zoom and image stabilization so opted for it's bigger brother. I think I should have waited on this purchase because this sapce is rapidly evolving and I don't think Toshiba have got this product right yet.

Lousy sound and Toshiba KNOWS it!

John Mangan, Amazon
1 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera because the Gadget Show had recommended it. A 1080p camera for less than £180 sounded too good to be true and so it proved to be. Picture quality is superb but the controls default every time you switch it off and you have to go through the whole selection process again every time you switch it on. That however is not the worst of it. The sound quality is appalling.
