Compact Camcorder Has Many Talents, But Crisp Video Isn’t One
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. Many are asking if there’s a need for a single-use device that just shoots video and captures photos, now that our smartphones have video capability and also do much, much more.
Excerpt: The range of pocket camcorders available seems to be growing by the day and there are now plenty of options on offer. Toshiba recently expanded its range with the introduction of the Camileo S30 and P20 which both sport slimline, pocket-friendly designs. We took a closer look at the S30 to see how it would compares with its rivals. The full HD Camileo S30 is available in a range of fancy colours including blue, red, silver, and "raspberry".
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
