Seems to me that the electronic industry finally realized that everyone isn’t have a deep pocket anymore so they all about to release a sleuth of HD camcorders for around $200. Featuring is the new Toshiba 1080 camcorder that won’t make a hole in your wallet. Words that the new S10 will be a 1080p. 2.5-inch screen, 4x digital zoom and a 5-megapixel sensor. Now it will be even harder to choose between the soon to release Sanyo VPC-CG10 HD Flash Memory Camcorder also for around $200!

  1. I love your website; I frequently click to others, and am shortly going to buy at two of those sites. I have only one complaint. There are so many mistakes in the body of the writing on individual items that it is distracting to the reader or more specifically to me. As an example, I will use the brief description above on the Toshiba Camileo S10. The following is a corrected version, but basically the very same information.

    NOTE: I have never read a completely correct product review on this site.

    While talking of pocket camcorders I wonder why every site, every review speaks only of the Flips & Kodaks, while safely avoiding the Toshiba Camileos. I guess the Flips are damn good, but being not available (generally) outside the US, we mortals need to do with the other models.

    I bought my Camileo S10 few days back, did some heavy duty shooting around and let me assert here that this is a preety good camcorder, as well.

    I took a whole day, visiting various retailers, testing the Sony Webbie, Kodak Zx1, Aiptek z700, Xacti CG10 and the Camileo P30 & S10, besides the Samsung ST550 [TL225 elsewhere] (a Digital Camera doing 720p HD). These were the compact camcorders available here (Flip Ultra HD, Samsung U10 & Kodak Zi8 are not yet marketed here) and settled down for the Camileo S10 due to:
    1. Great form factor.
    2. Lightest among all.
    3. *Best HD clips (2nd was Aiptek z700).
    4. *2nd best Still shots (best was Aiptek z700), but very-very good.
    5. **Li-ion Battery (keeps the device slimmer).
    6. ***Upto 32 Gb SD Card compatible.
    7. Got an 8 Gb SD card free from the store.
    8. Similar priced; under USD 160/- [the CG10 is a bit costlier (and the P30 is no better, but bigger)].
    9. HDMI port (a must, so that we enjoy Full HD footage on an FHD TV).
    10. ****Deal breaker: Slips easily into my shirt pocket, with ZERO bulge.

    *Both clips & shots analyzed by playing on a 42″ FHD LCD TV. [remember, it shoots just one step lower than 1080p, which is as good as 1080p, an ordinary guy like me would’nt notice the difference at all].
    **Bought another Li-ion battery for Stand-by (these are the same as used in most of the cameras & camcorders; thus, readily available – not proprietary; costed only USD 8/-).
    ***Note: standard SD card, NOT Micro SD; thus, cheaper.
    ****The S10 is a Flat device, half the thickness of my cigarette pack (B&H 20’s) and only half inch taller than it.

    I edited the clips & burnt a (regular) DVD – and wow! the movie was stunning. To note here, the supplied ArcSoft Suite is “just OK”, but I had no problem making my DVD thru the Cyberlink PowerDirector Express, which is a good movie software and came with my JVC HD7.

    Friends, don’t have any 2nd thoughts. If the 10 pointers I mentioned above are also your considering factors, go for the Camileo S10.

    It is better than the rest. AND be assured, the vids are VERY SIMILAR to that of a Hi-End HD Camcorder (I have one), if you can overcome the top-notch movies you get from them due to their manual controls. But then, we are talking about a “Pocket Camcorder”, whose basic purpose is to carry everywhere and shoot at the spur of the moment and under 1/10th of the price the Camileo S10 is a steal.

    I am deeply satisfied with my Camileo; and so would be you!!!
