    The good: After a couple outings using the cam, I have to say it works pretty well for the price. Image quality is good in video mode - not sure I'd say its excellent. Stills captured at 10mpx are decent, but not what a dedicated still camera would produce. It is easy to operate, menus are pretty simple to navigate. The optical zoom is nice, but next cam will have at least double the optical zoom (my first actual camcorder, I do have gopro that I use for pov work). The Bad: Can't turn sound off. Can't turn screen off. Camera has special function that will take a still image while filming video, but the still image is the same resolution as the video. What's the point? I can extract individual frames once its on the computer. Autofocus will not turn off. The Ugly: Hands down, the battery is abysmal, horrid, absolutely a let down. Took this out to get some clips of mountain biking, batter was fully charged. Here is the timing of clips we shot (in seconds): Clip 1 6 Clip 1 14 Clip 1 18 Clip 1 16 Clip 1 24 Clip 1 45 Clip 1 9 Clip 1 13 Clip 1 20 Clip 1 26 Clip 1 13 Clip 1 4 Clip 1 20 So, that's close to 250 seconds of video on a single charge of batter - it went dead trying to add one more clip. Add in some time for focusing and composing, and minimal reviewing. When we weren't filming, the camera was OFF. Camera was in 720p mode, image stabilization was off. FOUR MINUTES of footage on a single battery charge. This is my first camcorder, but somehow I expected a bit more out of the battery. I do admit, it was cold out, 36 degree Fahrenheit, but battery performance should still have been better. I am happy with the camera's operation, happy with the video it produces. But I am very close to returning it over the battery performance. I will runs some tests indoors, and will amend this review should I have a different experience. Also have ordered an aftermarket battery, as maybe the one that came with the camera is defective. If you buy this camera, do yourself a favor and get an extra battery or two, plus a charger. You WILL need them.

    I wanted to like the X100, it looks nice, but looks are deceiving. I bought this from a nations chain online. I returned it within a day. Pros: Looks great, nice design. Bundled with remote, HDMI cords, USB cord..etc. Nice weight and easy to hold. Cons: Over exposed video no matter what setting (outdoors sunlight) Not mac compatible, but I worked around it. Bundled software (windows only) is filled of trial software offers and no instructions and is useless I have never bought a Toshiba product before, after some debating on buying, I dove in. First day I had it I shot some 720p video outside in bright sunlight. You would think that it would be ideal, but when I uploaded the video, I was shocked. Over exposed areas of sunlight on grass areas, white washed pavement. I went through every setting and the same thing. I even pointed the camcorder to bright areas and allowed the aperture to adjust, but it seemed to do little once I moved. As for battery life, I did not have it long enough to see. I have a 7 year old hybrid camera that can deal with high contrast areas better than the x100. Maybe I got a faulty camcorder, but I am seeing more reviews that express that the video images are over exposed.

    For an indie film

    By turbowebguy

    from Los Angeles, CA

    Comments about Toshiba Camileo X100 High Definition Digital Camcorder:

    Bought this camera when it first came out (two of them) for shooting an indie film, PLUS, 60 FPS is nice, high res stills, they are a little bit noisy but still pretty good for price, also, 60FPS recording, very nice, hard to tell it's interlaced at 60FPS, it auto detects and compensates for florescent lighting which is a huge plus (or can be manually set) considering I am doing a lot of composite work, the end result is pretty good. Downside, auto-focus, sometimes doesn't know what to focus on where there is a lot of movement, but still, excellent footage and resolution for the price.

    Terrible autofocus.

    By Natnie

    from Wollongong, Australia

    Comments about Toshiba Camileo X100 High Definition Digital Camcorder:

    This camera makes quite good quality video with the right lighting, BUT the autofocus is the dealbreaker. If Toshiba could release some firmware that fixes it, I will be MUCH happier with this camera. But as it is, it's nearly unusable when even slightly zoomed in, because it just keeps trying to focus on different things constantly. One other problem is the fact that the microphone on the camera is on the flip-out panel. Which means, if you turn it the other way to film yourself, the audio quality suffers immensely.

    Poor battery life for video recording!

    By Bosse

    from Sweden

    Comments about Toshiba Camileo X100 High Definition Digital Camcorder:

    you must set the settings each time you open the camera that draws battery time. Poor software supplied with the camera, there is much that was not needed and that you have to pay extra for it if you want something that fits and that can be used
