Toshiba Camileo S20 Review


In designing the Camileo S20, its first pocket camcorder, Toshiba paid close attention to features, but not enough to details. For a reasonable $149, you get not just full HD resolution but optical zoom, an HDMI cable, and tripod. However, the S20 is...

Large, swiveling LCD displayImpressive optical zoomVery lightweightHDMI cable and tripod included

Toshiba Camileo S20


It may be thin and light--even for a pocket camcorder--but the ultraslim Toshiba Camileo S20 ($180 as of 5/7/2010) packs more features into its frame than any high-definition pocket camcorder we've tested to date.

Time-lapse mode, white balance presets, fun extras ; LED lamp for low-light shooting ; Very slim and light

Menu navigation and zoom can be frustrating ; No built-in USB connector ; Plastic, cheap-feeling build

For sheer bang for the buck, look no further than the fun-filled, 1080p-shooting Toshiba Camileo S20. It's unsurpassed in features, but we've seen better usability and build quality.

Say what you will, but Toshiba has managed to time the Camelio S20 just right -- it was the very same day that our Flip Slide HD frustrations were

Sleek and thin pocketable design ; Solid 720p video quality ; Captures decent 5-megapixel stills

Confusing software interface ; Cluttered controls ; No zoom in 1080p setting

Toshiba Camileo S20 Pocket Camcorder Review


The S20 has three distinct strengths and two glaring weaknesses. On the plus side, it is super slim, has a large (for its class, anyway) 3.0-inch display, and comes loaded with extras like the HDMI cable and mini tripod.

The Toshiba Camileo S20 is certainly a great-looking pocket camcorder but how well does it perform under testing?

Thinnest HD camcorder on market, Reasonably priced

Lacks manual controls, Image stabilisation not available in Full HD mode, Substandard image quality

Toshiba Camileo S20 Review


The S20 is one of many in the mini-budget camcorder market, but it does have a few features that make it stand out, especially its (very) slim body, and (very) light weight. Another advantage it has over competition like the Flip cameras is the form...

Toshiba Camileo S20


A decent performer with a nice price and a good set of accessories. Shame about the clunky menu system though.

When you consider what you get for your dosh, the Camileo S20 offers very good value for money. It's compact, includes HD video, has loads of useful accessories and offers a pretty good performance. Non-Windows users would be wise to check thoroughly...

Size is exceptional for carry. Get an additional SD Card for over 4 hours besides internal memory.

A bit slippery to handle, smooth surfaces make using one hand for controls while recording difficult if you have larger hands.
