Summary: I purchased this camera from a well known high street retailer for £50.00..( in a sale ) I wasn't expecting too much by way of performance at this price... "It met all my expectation's.., although I kept coming back to it..,time and time again..,just hoping that maybe, this time it would give a good result..." Sadly it never did... This camera is pretty much useless in every sense of the word... Colours are really unnatural..
Summary: bought this for four reasons - up and coming daughters wedding - for use by my wife (so she can carry it in her habdbag) - good price - good reviews to say I was dissapointed is an understatement, but I shouldn't have been surprised as it was a Toshiba. Toshiba always seem to go off 'half-cocked', never getting it quite right, in my opinion they are a second division player. The HD recording is unwatchable. True the picture quality is good but it is unbelievably jerky.
Summary: I got the camcorder, and it worked fine until I inserted my newly bought 8GB memory card. I couldn't take pictures or video, and I couldn't even turn it off. I'm currently looking into formatting the memory card, but it is simply not acceptable that the camera gets into such a state. As others have mentioned, the video quality isn't really that good, especially in low lighting conditions.
Summary: I was really happy when i opened the box and picked up the P30 for the first time. It looks great and is very lightweight, the controls are fairly easy to use with the one hand and the screen is nice and bright. Having said it is lightweight, it could certainly not be classed as rugged. The build quality isn't fantastic especially the flip down cover that hides the cable ports, this was a bit loose from the off.
