Product Reviews for Toshiba Camileo S30 Digital Camcorder - 3" LCD - Touchscreen - CMOS - Silver, Black

The Price!! You should think about what you get for what you pay for on this camera. I use this camera about once a week, sometimes more. I love to play with the time lapse and motion detection modes. I live on a hill facing the Pacific and like taking time lapse of the sunset, but I also used it on a trip to Minnesota last year, and I time lapsed the whole trip. I didn't like that you cant record while it is charging and I cant find a remote that works for this camera, but these are minor inconveniences for what you get. You can find a new one of these for around a hundred dollars and you get full HD and all the little trick things like time lapse and motion detection, night setting for low light, back-lighting, slow motion, and a stabilization mode. Also, this camera is truly easy to carry, it is small and at the same time has a good size viewfinder for those of us that need to use reading glasses. I am not sure what happened with all the other reviews, but I have never had it not work and I have had a lot of fun with all the settings. Buy and extra battery for a long recording and some more memory. It uses an 8 gig minisd. I think that if it won't charge, send it back and get one that works, because they are fun and easy to use.

I've got this camera as a Christmas gift and I love it, one little problem though, when I take pictures they are really blurry. But not every time, so is it the camera or me. Although It dosen't have stabelisation for photos only video. Other than that I love it. So far. I only had it for 3 days But used it all day the day I recieved it. and still no problems. if that changes I will write an other reviue.

After 3 months using the camera, it doesn't turn on anymore. Seem to be the same problem as other reviews.

The discounted price on this camera is often much less than MSRP, and in my opinion it is a spectacular camera at its price point. I've never liked touch screens before I tried this one -- it is both easy to use and doesn't take on finger prints easily. The video quality is excellent if you take some time to tune the settings, and battery life is more than good enough. Excellent!

Really loved the camera and it's versitility at the get go;however,soon started having issues: controls, formatting, and finally it died and would not come back. The battery was good, 4.1 volts but nothing! I called Toshiba for factory warranty...send it to me and I'll send you a voucher! We'll see???
