Product Reviews for Toshiba Camileo H30 Digital Camcorder
from Cornwall UK on 1/2/2011
Okay had this cam for just under 2 months, great video capture but where is that clicking sound coming from guys, if you ever update the firmware please consider allowing us ISO control by this I mean more ISO 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 and find out where that clicking noise is coming from, I am sure its the auto focus. There is also a problem with the avi format used, it has to be converted to type 2 to work in most video programs, but alas you loose some quality. It really should have had Audio input socket for external mic Better ISO control Better White Balance Control Manual Settings 1080p stabilization

Pros: HDMI output, you can charge it by usb, and the TOUCH SCREEN i really cool, you can also turn it and fold it! It's clear and can shoot up to 10MP+ You get a battery, remote, hdmi cable, rca cables, usb cables, and charger.

I found the H 30 to be a great camera for shooting videos. The full HD has amazing quality images. One thing to keep in mind is that there is no stabilization when in full HD mode so you will have to use a tri pod. The stabilizing feature does work good in HD mode though and you can shoot freehand. Still shots are great and easy to set up on the camera. My biggest problem with this camera is the very poor audio quality. If your going to be shooting videos and also want to capture conversations or any type of audio, this is not the camera for you. The audio is so poor that even with the playback volume on the TV at full mode you can barely hear any talking. The audio when present sounds is muddled and sounds as if it is was being produced inside an echo chamber. ( Beware there is no mic input jack on this camera either if you wan to upgrade audio quality ). The built in microphone is situated on the outside of the view finder inside tiny little holes that has a very small footprint. I did a great deal of testing to try and improve the audio but had no luck in doing so. I even spoke directly into the microphone and the audio was still poor. I am very disappointed with the audio aspect and will be returning the camera and searching for a different brand. Part of the reason for my owning a camcorder was to not only catch video but also to capture the audio portions of scenes. What a shame as this camera does shoot good quality videos but the poor audio renders the camera useless. Toshiba would have been smart to add a microphone jack on this camcorder.
