Was a good deal on sale, but otherwise you can get better at full price.

  • Summary: I bought this this product on sale so. It films and takes pictures in low lighting, but are really hard to see, so would avoid that, although it does have a flashlight built in. Also really hard to take good picture without a autofocus, or I just haven't found the setting, because it is really hard to use. Records really nice 1080p HD in good lighting is the main attraction, but other than that this camera is ok at best, but for the 60 bucks I spent it was a good deal.

I am not sure, yet, if it was worth it...

  • Summary: First of all--it isn't "touchscreen." Secondly, one has to buy a memory card that is more expensive than the product to actually capture video. Other than that, I guess it is fine...

  • Summary: This product WAS very good, the picture quality is great and the sound was pretty good but, after 1 and a half months the screen completly broken disconected and was all white. Over all the camcorder is good.

BRILLIANT! But then you realise it's bad...

  • Summary: When I read rave reviews about this camera I was expecting it to be fantastic but I was wrong. When I first opened it the quality seemed pretty good which I was happy with. I read on YouTube that this camera would be good for filming app reviews but it's awful! If you hold anything less than a metre away from the camera it's all blurry and you can't focus the camera yourself!

decent camera nothing special

  • Summary: decent for the price but if your wanting to record fast movements whilst holding the camera (eg sports like me) this is not the best camera. Without the stabalizer its terrible, even if you feel like your holding it pretty still its very shaky when you watch it on a tv or computer screen. If you switch the stabiliser on, its a little bit better but you lose some quality.

  • Summary: Bought this purely to record the interior of a house we were thinking of buying abroad to back up copious still pictures as a memory jogger when we came back to the UK. Very good externally not so good internally which was the whole point of buying it. But hey ho not bad for the price (cheap at Tesco) but I wish I had gone a bit more up-market with hindsight. Connects well with HDMI cable to TV but no use with Mac computer which to me is a major failing.
  • Pros: Small size, good picture in bright daylight conditions.
  • Cons: Controls very small, poor instruction with camera, very poor in low light conditions. WARNING. No use with Apple Mac unless you convert all of the files!

question about delivery

Josh, Amazon
2 February 2011
  • Summary: I am buying products from Amazon regularly and I have not face any difficult situation than this time.. As amazon has started another method of special delivery and trying to attract customers to go for it.. but it is ridiculous to those who are regulars and expecting delivery in 2-4 working days... I wanted to give this product as a gift to my wife but it took around 7 days to arrive.. So I am not at all happy with the delivery...

Toshiba Camileo S20 Camcorder

Vicki R, Amazon
11 January 2011
  • Summary: Just received the above camcorder, which was very late, but thats Royal Mail and not Amazon! Tiny, very good looking camcorder. Opened up to set up and found the battery was already in the camcorder. Didnt think much off it until been on charge all day and still doesnt work, so either a damaged battery, faulty camcorder or been used, returned and re sent to another customer ...... needless to say, not happy! Have emailled Amazon just waiting on a reply re a replacement.

Good but some annoying points, & poor in low light

Tim, Amazon
19 November 2010
  • Summary: Good value little camcorder. Feels good quality and a lovely large bright screen unlike some of it's competitors. Image quality is pretty good but suffers terribly from stabilisation problems which although partially cured if image stabilisation is set (available on 720p only) this has to be reset every time!!!! this is all the more annoying as the UI is very clunky and the control buttons very difficult to read...
