With so many different brands of camcorders popping up in the market today, choosing an affordable camcorder with the features one desires can prove to be somewhat of an uphill task. However, if it is a simple, no-frills camcorder that one is looking for, Toshiba’s latest Camileos, the S30 and P20, should be a decent match for such needs.
Unlike the previous Camileos, the new S30 and P20 will both feature a 3-inch touchscreen and a 10x digital zoom function, as well as being capable of recording video clips at full HD resolutions (1080p) with H.264 compression. Storage-wise, both the S30 and P20 will support SD cards with capacities of up to 64GB. Last but not least, both the S30 and P20 comes with a HDMI port, which allows for quick viewing of recorded footage on a TV or projector without the need for transferring the clips out from the SD card.
The S30 will retail for US$215 and will come with additional features like automatic exposure control and image stabilization, while the cheaper, no frills P20 has a US$183 price tag attached to it. Both are expected to be released in the US by January 2011 and October 2010, respectively.
