Review: Toshiba Camileo S30

18 April 2011
  • Excerpt: The Bieber-esque popularity of the Flip video camera over the last few years has sparked a proliferation of cheap, handheld camcorders. However, the news last week that Cisco is killing off the seminal Flip has thrown the whole deck of cards into the air.
  • Pros: Low price and a lot of included swag. Cool functions, including slow-motion, time-lapse and motion-detect are unheard of in a budget camera. Several hardware perks, such as HDMI-out, a flip-out display, removable battery, zoom controls, LED light and a macro switch.
  • Cons: Touchscreen controls are wonky. Super sensitivity to light made for unwelcome lens flares and overexposed shots. HD video often appeared somewhat smudgy and less-than-crisp. Oversensitivity to movement made all but the stillest still pictures unusable.

  • Conclusion: The Toshiba Camileo S30 pocket camcorder looks and feels like a real video camera, with a big screen and plenty of features, but its performance is only average.
  • Pros: Shoots 8-megapixel still images. Build-in flash. Large, articulating LCD. Storage is expandable.
  • Cons: Video quality not up to par with competitors. Not left-hand friendly. Interface is difficult to use.

  • Summary: Toshiba may not be known for its prowess in the pocket camcorder market, but that doesn’t mean it should be immediately counted out.

  • Pros: Good video quality for a pocket camcorder, Extremely affordable, Plenty of extras
  • Cons: Resistive touchscreen isn't very responsive, Menus are poorly designed, Exposed lens

Toshiba Camileo S30: schlanker Pocket-Camcorder mit mäßiger Bildqualität

18 April 2011
  • Summary: Toshibas Pocket-Camcorder Camileo S30 zielt auf Anwender ab, die einen ständigen Begleiter für die spontane Videoaufnahme suchen und sich dabei nicht in Schulden stürzen wollen. Wie sich der Full-HD-Winzling in der Praxis schlägt, zeigt der Testbericht.
  • Pros: LED-Licht, HDMI-Ausgang, schlanke Abmessungen, niedriges Gewicht, Mini-Dreibein-Stativ im Lieferumfang enthalten
  • Cons: Bildstabilisierung ist standardmäßig abgestellt, schlappe Video- und Fotoqualität, Objektiv wird leicht mit dem Finger verdeckt oder verschmutzt
