Conclusion: The S30 isn’t the most feature packed camcorder you are going to find, but it is one of the smallest full HD camcorders on the market. We loved the ease of use and portability of this device. The build quality is good and for normal un-zoomed recording it is great.
Pros: In this fast moving world, we don’t always have time to setup a tripod, load a heavy video camera, adjust ISO and white balance – sometimes you just want to video things! This is where the Toshiba Camileo S30 really comes into its own. Being ready to shoot in less than 3 seconds, and being small enough to carry with you at all times; the S30 is a camera that will be with you whenever you need it. Still images are sharp and clear and video is crisp. Loading images onto...
Cons: Comparative to its price, there really aren’t that many things wrong with the Toshiba Camileo S30, however there are a few considerations you should make before buying. The zoom is digital only, as is the image stabilization – so if you intend on use either a lot; you can expect a fair amount of quality degradation. The microphone is very tinny and doesn’t pick up all that much unless you are fairly close to it.
Excerpt: Toshiba may not be known for its prowess in the pocket camcorder market, but that doesn't mean it should be immediately counted out. Its latest pocket camcorder offering, the Camileo S30 , hops on the touch-control bandwagon and tries to compete with the best with a user-friendly design. So can the Camileo S30 keep up with touch-based camcorder big shots like Sony Bloggie Touch? Read on and find out.
Conclusion: The Toshiba Camileo S30 is a great-looking piece of kit and we found it really comfortable to hold and easy to use. The in-depth menus are slightly frustrating but as you'll probably be using the same setting for most of time, this isn't a deal breaker. What we were disappointed by was the image quality - both on video and photos. Having said that, if you're just after some quick vids to bung on Facebook or YouTube then the S30 should do just fine.
Pros: Great design, easy to use, lots of recording and photo options, fold-out screen
Cons: Video/image quality isn't great, convoluted menu navigation, a bit pricey
