Summary: For the longest time I thought the battery was defective. I'd turn the camera off and it would never turn back on. I'd have to fully charge the battery and plug the camera into the computer to get it to reboot.
Summary: I am not a serious photographer and I wanted something simple to operate to take short videos. Even with the stability option, this camcorder is quite "shake-y". I would suggest using only with a tripod.

Summary: Not bad for the price. Good if you are a Windows user. Not good if you are a MAC user. It makes Windows compatible movie files not MPGs. Included software is not worth installing. Native Windows video and image tools are adequate for simple editing. 32 Gig cards are hard to find and expensive.
Summary: if you are planning to purchase a camera to upload your videos to youtube do not buy this one. when you upload videos there is no sound on the playback and they have no fix for it as of yet. toshiba is aware of it and said they are working on it.
Summary: This Camcorder is an excellent buy for the average home used. I only gave this a three star review because it is a huge step down from what I'm used to. This camcorder is not well suited for a professional videographer. The auto focus is a huge hindrance.
Summary: I wasnt happy with the fuzzy video..then I noticed a dead pixel almost center that was very annoying ..so I sent it back..but for the money if it werent defective I would say its an ok buy..spend $50 more and maybe get better video..dont understand why it was fuzzy at distances of 4ft or more.
Summary: Very light weight camera, with good benefits. I was surprised by the low weight of the camera, having put the battery and memory card. The shiny black finish around the camera body leaves marked fingerprints. I realized that the best picture quality is obtained by setting the 16MP camera.
Summary: The H30 is a nice camcorder. However, I use a Mac and there was no alert that it is designed only for a windows computer. I am able, by downloading certain applications to transfer pictures and video to my computer. Then, to edit them I have to find another application.
