I have a Toshiba Camileo Pro HD with the 3x digital Zoom. I note that this website displays the latest 8x Camileo BUT fails to provide a link to a company that actually sells the product. There are links to over priced older 3x camileo's but NONE to the latest Toshiba. Now i don't want to be harsh BUT NONE of the quoted UK prices match those available elsewhere even with a tax added on. Basically there are no bargain prices quoted here just links to sellers of older cameras. For example: http://www.oo.com.au/Toshiba_Camileo_HD_Digital_Vid_P17412C1047.cfm?AFID=25 and if you want to know that's Australian dollars at around £110! That's for the very latest version 8x Camileo!
Now I like the 3x Camileo I have and was interested enough to look to buy another seeing as I have a particular "crash" use for the camera. It's an easy to use model but like all small cameras is prone to having background noise on the video. The mic sits on top and picks up the internal noise. Now this initially bothered me but I use CyberLink PowerDirector to remove the background hum and it's no longer a bother. Please note that other small cams have similar issues - you just need to know how to deal with it.
I would like to review the latest 8x camileo model... seems there's no source in the UK that sells it... but they do like showing off (misleadingly) the picture of the latest 8x model!!!!!
I've rated the older 3x model Camileo Model.
This Toshiba Camileo HD Camcorder is a great high definition device that can be used to film video and sound. It also has a handy Widescreen video capture which allows you to capture using even higher quality.
It's easy to upload what you've recorded to a computer and it can be edited in most video software.
The device is nice and small and can be easily stored and carried around. It can be used for personal use to capture holidays or parties or whatever it is you want to film. It can also be used to film short movies or school/university assignments.
It can be bought on amazon for a great price and so far can't be found as easily on the high street.
The colour combination is nice too, it's a sleek silver with black highlights and everything fits together perfectly.
Overall it's great for anyone of all ages to use.
Via the pre-installed "YouTube-Link" software on the Camileo HD, consumers can easily upload their personal video clips straight to the popular YouTube portal, meaning movies can be shared with a global audience just moments after creation.

An 8x digital zoom enables consumers to record close-up scenes, while the 2.5" screen can be rotated through 240 degrees, providing maximum flexibility and control in any filming situation.
A NP60-Li-Ion battery allows for 105 minutes of recording or 140 minutes playback. The camcorder also captures still pictures up to 3744 x 2808 pixels. Additionally, the Camileo HD is equipped with a photo flashlight and a red-eye-reduction mode.
