Summary: Length:: 0:20 Mins In my experience, unless you are doing purely close-up video blogging (web cam style), this camera will be useless to you. The killer is the very poor autofocus. It will lose focus whenever you film someone in motion. Low light makes it worse, but even in full sunlight it loses focus sometimes, making it a poor quality video. YouTubers and beginner film hobbyists should stay away from this camera.
Summary: I love everything about this camera EXCEPT the battery life. Even when fully charged I can not video tape an entire game of my sons. The battery dies about 3/4 of the way through the game. Batteries should last longer that approximately 45 minutes.
Summary: I bought this camera one year ago and only used it four times. Now it shuts down and refuses to work on battery or charger until it decides it's ready. You can change batteries, hook up the 120v power, push buttons, slap it, and you get NOTHING. Come back later and it works fine, for a while, then shuts down after a short film period and does nothing again.
Summary: While the description of the camera touts it as "full hd" you're unlikely to get that quality. The pictures it takes are terrible, the video is fuzzy and dark unless you're in a highly lit room. Also the microphone barely picks up anything beyond a few feet. The light included on the camera doesn't really improve the video lighting on anything that's not very close by. The digital lighting setting just barely improves the brightness level on the final video.
Summary: The best thing is that its less than $200, where other brands of similar specifications are $80 more. Unfortunately this camera doesnt perform very well at all. Pros: -Cheap at under 200 -small, lightweight -LCD is decent Cons: -worthless image stabilization (its digital, not optical, and its terrible in effectiveness) -poor battery life (30-40 minutes of footage, about an hour total on time) -poor image quality, then again its only 200. -touchscreen is a pain to use..
Summary: Toshiba Camileo X200 HD 1080p Camcorder, 12x Optical Zoom, 3" Touch Screen As a camcorder it works fine, but no special deal. As a webcam it sucks, and doesn't even work on a Mac (OS 10,7). In Win7 it did not focus, and the zoom was inoperative. Oh well.. Toshiba has some work to do.
