Toshiba Camileo SX900 review

 

Occupying a unique position somewhere between a pocket camcorder and a costlier video device, the Toshiba Camileo SX900 is fun to use, great value and offers several features not usually found on devices of this price.

Small, smart minimalist design ; Great value ; Easy to use ; 9x optical zoom ; HDMI cable included

Stiff zoom rocker ; Poor image stabiliser ; Hard to frame still photos properly

You're never going to get broadcast-quality results from the Toshiba Camileo SX900 but, for normal day-to-day use, it's a great little device that goes the extra mile to accommodate both point-and-shoot types and those who want more to explore

This traditionally shaped camcorder from Toshiba crams in specs and skills you'd expect to find in much more expensive models. With a 9x optical zoom, 14 megapixel stills, the ability to shoot in Full 1080p HD, 1080i at 60fps and measuring 33x55x111mm,...

Camcorders built like the SX900 don’t normally elicit as much excitement as Flip-style models, but this has all the trappings of a top end model without the price tag. At £250, it delivers great video and is loaded up with enough features for even...

The design is what really makes the SX900 stand out. While vertical shooters are all the rage, this barrel-shaped model is much more assured for lengthy shooting periods, with the grip giving a more assured and steady feel to images

The zoom button on the SX900 is its major failing. It’s not large enough and lacks the smoothness required to ensure zooming in and out doesn’t cause shaky shots. This is poor on Tosh’s part and does let the SX900 down quite badly

i am so impressed, even better than expected, yes and the night view is very good as well. So light, which was a complete surprise

Should of been suplied with a harder case rather than a sock type bag which wouldn't give it any protection in a handbag to stop buttons being pressed on
