A Great Bargain, But...!

Dream Chaser, Amazon
3 August 2012
  • Summary: UPDATE: Sad to say that this camcorder now won't power on. Am reading through reviews and see one that says a fully charged battery may be the culprit - am seriously questioning the quality control of the manufacturer!! The video quality is good, but what use is it if you can't get the camcorder to work???? The seller has a 30 day return policy so there is no refund forthcoming for this. The first bad experience that I've had with Amazon.

Decent camera

GeorgePG3, Amazon

  • Summary: Good for action in warmer temps. It won't work in temps below 25ish. So, don't plan on using it for ski/snowboarding action. Very light and easy to use.

Power on problem partially resolved

K. LIU, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: This Toshiba S30 camcorder was a gift for my parents. When I received it from Amazon, I tested it and everything was perfect. The video quality is impressive. I would give this product a 5 star. However, when my parents receive this camcorder, they encountered a major problem: it wouldn't power on. I checked reviews on this product at different websites and found many people had same problem.

Good barn camera

Belerophoryx, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: I wanted a camera I could put in my barn to deliver an HDMI signal to my house so I could see what my animals were doing. A lot of cameras wouldn't do it, this one does: Live feed out the HDMI port. Doesn't turn off after set time. Accepts external power. It can also do time lapse (which I always wanted to play with) and motion detect, although the motion has to be big to trigger the camera. Still, put next to a bird feeder, it would catch when birds are there.

Nice camera BUT....

Turbohawk "If you're not living on the edge, ..., Amazon
8 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought his camera after being disappointed with the DISMAL software that came with a JVC HD camcorder. Understand that THE achilles heel to these HD cameras is getting the HD footage to a Disc, and right off you only have ONE choice for full HD and that's going to require a powerful computer equipped with a BluRay burner.

I'd get a Flip if I had to do it all over again

Alsan Bellard "Dr. Bellard", Amazon
22 May 2011
  • Summary: This thing is not that great. I got it for $99 as a special, and I'm OK with it. I have a friend with a Flip cam, and it's so much easier to use than this clunky thing. It serves it's purpose, but I don't like it after seeing how easy the Flip cam is to use.

Be careful.....

Cabbages, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: Picture, sound, features and size are all great. However. This model is extremely well known for problems in that it often won't start up without any obvious reason for it. There are pages and pages on the internet about it. With no actual help or resolution by toshiba. Ours started to do the same after a few months. It normally works again after removing and replacing the battery. However this makes it a nightmare for spontaneous use which is the main reason we got it!!

not as HD as you would like

Barbo, Amazon
17 July 2012
  • Summary: The toshiba s30 is a daytime only video camera as the indoor and night time video quality is poor, when you zoom you lose picture quality and basically its not as good as the video and camera that are on smartphones. why they claim it is hd is beyond me as the picture quality is average and no better than a digital camera that costs half the price.

handy gadget

jan, Amazon
12 May 2012
  • Summary: Easy to use. Picture quality not one hundred percent very sensative to movement even with stabalisation on. VIdeo very grainy but when transferred into computer plays back with excellant picture. All in all for the price good product.
