Main Features

The Toshiba Camileo S30 has some great features. While the video quality is not the best, it is still pretty good for a pocket camcorder. Video is shot in 1080pHD and are saved as MP4 files. Keep in mind that when we shot in 720pHD it gave us better quality. The Camileo S30 features a built-in light, this will help you when you are shooting a low-light shot. In case you want to record something that is far away, you will be able to do this with the S30, it has 16x digital zoom. Though keep in mind the quality may not be the best when you zoom in on something that is far away. The S30 also takes still shot, these were hit or miss. It has a fixed focus, meaning that the camera has to get it perfect. So, this did not really help that much. Images are shot at 3,6,8, or 16 mega-pixels. In the box with the camera you get basically everything but the Kitchen Sink. They really made a great package with this camera, it gives your everything you need to start taking video right out of the box! Overall, the S30 is a great pocket camcorder!

Bottom Line

The Toshiba Camileo S30 is great pocket camcorder that comes with plenty of features and accessories. While the video quality is not the best, everything else it comes with and the features that it has, make up for it’s not the best video quality. Overall, we would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a simple and easy to sue camera  that comes with everything you need, and has “ok” video quality. Overall for the price of only $179.99 it is a great deal! You Can Buy The Toshiba Camileo S30 Camcorder, By Clicking Here. We would like to thank Toshiba for providing us with a copy of the “Toshiba Camileo S30”.
