Known as the Camileo S30, it's an HD video camcorder and digital stills camera with an 8 megapixel CMOS sensor and 3-inch swivelling touch screen, featuring the ultraportable light weight of approx. 120 grams (118g without battery) and is 19mm thin, similar in size to modern mobile phones but with much better video recording capability.
Clearly a solid Flip video camera competitor, the camcorder market is obviously still a popular one with consumers despite smartphones now coming with HD video recording capabilities, although often only at 720P.
As we've seen on similar camcorders in the past, over the years, the Camileo also comes with a 'direct upload function to video sharing sites such as YouTube' using an 'Internet upload button' (that presumably only works when the Camileo S30 is connected to your Internet connected PC via a USB cable).
Key features include 1080P HD capability, 8 megapixel CMOS censor and 'fast last for clear recording', a 'smart image stabilisation' mode that works when recording video in 1080P, 720P and 480P, a 16x digital zoom (although no mechanical zoom), a swivelling 3-inch touch-screen LCD, an included HDMI cable (and port, naturally) and compatibility with SDHC and SDXC cards up to 64GB.
Robert Wilkinson, the General Manager of Toshiba's Information Systems Division (ISD) said that: 'Consumers today enjoy watching videos as well as sharing them and the Camileo S30 has been specifically designed to help them capture all their memories with the greatest flexibility.
'Users can also view their video and still photos directly on their computer or TV using the included HDMI cable. And they can easily share their videos and photos on YouTube using the Internet Upload Button. Intuitive technology is the result of Toshiba's continuous innovation,' Mr Wilkinson concluded.
Available now, the Camileo S30 retails for AUD $299, with more info available here. A picture is below.
