Toshiba Camileo S20

LAPTOP Magazine
14 June 2010
  • Summary: In designing the Camileo S20, its first pocket camcorder, Toshiba paid close attention to features, but not enough to details. For a reasonable $149, you get not just full HD resolution but optical zoom, an HDMI cable, and tripod. However, the S20 is more difficult to use and hold than it should be, and while the image quality is good it’s not the best.
  • Pros: Large swiveling LCD display, Impressive optical zoom, Very lightweight, HDMI cable and tripod included
  • Cons: Difficult to hold one-handed, Lacks 60 fps frame rate at high-def resolutions, Limited zooming at 1080p resolution, Software not Mac-compatible

  • Excerpt: Along with 1080p high-definition video, digital stabilisation, and a macro/landscape toggle switch - all of which we've seen in models such as the Kodak Zi8 - the Toshiba Camileo S20 has a handful of pocket-camcorder firsts, including an LED light for shooting in the dark, a time-lapse mode that lets you select between three preset intervals, four white-balance presets, and a slow-motion mode that helps you take (very grainy) footage of fast action.

Toshiba's Camileo S20 camcorder is feature-packed, but has finicky controls

  • Summary: For sheer bang for the buck, look no further than the fun-filled, 1080p-shooting Toshiba Camileo S20. It's unsurpassed in features, but we've seen better usability and build quality.
  • Pros: Time-lapse mode, white balance presets, fun extras, LED lamp for low-light shooting, Very slim and light
  • Cons: Menu navigation and zoom can be frustrating, no built-in USB connector, cheap-feeling build
