Toshiba Camileo H30 HD Review, Price, Specs, Advantages and Disadvantages

Toshiba Camileo H30 HD

Toshiba’s new Camileo X100, H30 and S20, will be available for preorder in the US begining Tuesday, April 6 and in stores April 19. The X100, H30 and S20 HD camcorders will cost $400, $250 and $180 at launch, respectively. With the exception of the S20, the Camileo series camcorders aren’t Flip-like pocket gadgets. Toshiba is touting the X100 and H30 as full-fledged HD camcorders, which typically cost $600 to $1,000 from other manufacturers.

All three Camileos shoot 1080/30fps h.264 AVI footage, take stills, support SD and SDHC up to 32GB, and sport a 3-inch LCD touchscreen, dedicated YouTube upload button, and an HDMI output. The H30 and X100 also feature a 10 megapixel CMOS sensor and 5x and 10x optical zoom lenses, respectively, while the S20 has a 5 megapixel CMOS sensor with 4x digital zoom.

All camera controls can be accessed and managed through the 3-inch touchscreen LCD display. I’ve found it to be responsive, intuitive, and simple to navigate and operate, despite its surprisingly deep control offerings. The H30 offers four shooting modes (1080p/30fps, 720p/30fps, WVGA/60fps, VGA/30fps) image stabilization, controls for scene conditions, white balance, along with a host of other settings. For stills, the H30 offers many of the same controls, but adds ISO (auto, 800, 1600) and resolution options for 16, 10, and 3 megapixel stills. Toshiba says the H30 sports a 10 megapixel CMOS sensor, so I’m guessing some interpolation is going on with the 16 megapixel stills.
