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_Vi d_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.
Summary: The old 3x camileo is a delight to have
