i have owned this camera for about 5 months now and i think it is great. i paid £150, which is a lot less than similar products available. its compact size and light weight make it very easy to carry around - a big difference to larger models than use tapes or discs. another advantage to using memory cards is how simple it is to store the videos onto your computer and watch again.
i also like how you can connect the camera to your tv and playback videos. the picture and sound quality are brilliant even when played on a 40inch television.
this camera is very easy to use whether you are taking a video or playing it back. the controls are simple and dont take long to get used to.
i wuld not recommend using this product as your main camera for photos as still can often be blurry if not held totally still, and it can be hard to get a perfect photo, although when you do the quality and colours are brilliant
The H10 is Toshiba's budget high definition (HD) camcorder. The idea of securing a HD camcorder without paying a fortune for it would have been impossible not so long ago. However Toshiba has unveiled its new H10, a high-definition Camileo camcorder looking to fill the video-capture needs of its users without emptying their bank accounts along the way.
It is built around providing high-definition image capturing capabilities and intuitive functionality at a cost-effective price point, the palm-friendly Camileo H10 is offering itself up to an expectant European market for a pocket-friendly estimated purchase price of £179.99 GBP (which is approximately 225 Euro).
And what can prospective buyers expect to receive from Toshiba in return for their monetary outlay? Well, the Camileo H10 comes complete with a 5x optical and 4x digital zoom, HD resolution performance equating to 1280x720p, video encoded in H.264/MPEG4 formats, 64MBs of integrated storage, and expandable memory of up to 8GBs via SDHC memory cards.
According to Pocket-Lint, Toshiba notes that a full 8GBs of additional storage will provide users with as much as 4 hours of captured HD content, which is 30 minutes of high-definition footage for every single gigabyte of memory.
Beyond its video functionality, the H10 can also serve as an impressive still camera thanks to its 10 mega pixel CCD image sensor. It also comes equipped with a handy Night Mode and a selection of on-board photographic effects to further boost its appealing versatility.
The H10 is Toshiba's budget entry HD camcorder and value for money. I fount the price of £170 for a HD camcorder to be extremley reasonable as not long ago the price was much higher. The H10 has a streamlined design without too many of those pointless buttons to confusedly push without very much happening.
It has quite a blocky shape but is quite small and compact and fits nice in the hand when operating. It feels quite heavy but this isnt a bad thing as it feels sturdy and not worryingly flimsy.
It can record video in 720p HD MPEG-4 format video on SD or SDHC Cards at frame rates of up to 30fps and has a 5x optical zoom. These are very good for such a low price HD camcorder and it has the feel of a product that will last for a while.
I have not had any unusual hitches when operating it and the picture quality has been superb.
It is a highly useful little gadget that i have no regrets in purchacing. The battery power is not the best but lasts for an acceptable amount of time.
A worthwhile purchace and excellent value for HD.
