Summary: I wasn't very impressed with the camcorder after the first use, because I used it to film my daughter's stagecoach play, which was in a dark stage, and the result was quite bad. As other reviewers pointed out, the result is very shaky - you would need a tripod to get a smooth film. However, when I used the camcorder outdoors on a sunny day, the film was much better, what I would call acceptable.
Summary: At first it seemed very good Toshiba camcorder for money. However, I was very disappointed by recording quality espacially indoors. Artificial light was not enough exposure for this device - all recordings were almost completely black. Outdoor recording in daytime was nearly perfect, but sound issue (actual lack of sound and lots of hissing noises instead) spoiled it totally.
Summary: Was looking for a portable and cheap camera to take on holiday, and this eventually was the one I chose (the other option being the Aiptek AHD200). Delivery was excellent, and first impressions of the camera were good - it's light and pretty well made, picture quality looked good, and it seemed to fit the bill.
Summary: Bought it, filmed a few minutes. Looked good on TV (all leads come with it), but screen started playing up. Takes a few seconds to zoom, so a big let-down. Very grainy picture in low-light, even though it has a flash. I'd say keep away unless you're desperate.
Excerpt: "At first glance this Toshiba seems to be the ideal small pocket camcorder, it has many great functions including optical zoom. The first one I purchased suffered from an intermittent screen and low sound, this was replaced with no fuss and the second Camileo proved to be a lot more reliable, very good quality video recordings can be made and the controls are simple and well laid out for ease of operation. However the sound is extremely poor on ...
Pros: Easy to use, small and light, fantastic battery life, great video quality, optical zoom .
Cons: Hopeless sound on recorded clips, barely audible on PC .
Excerpt: Ya se sabe lo del refrán del título "lo barato sale caro". Esta cámara la puedes encontrar en muchos sitios por poco más de 100 euros. Claro, cuando te dicen eso dices: cámara de video, digital, por poco más de 100 euros = un chollo de primera pero... De hecho en un diario valenciano la ofertan por 99 euros más unos cupones (pocos, por cierto), pero a mi ya no me iban a pillar.
