    The CAMILEO S20 is a 2/3” thin, Flip-like compact captures H.264, 1080p video and 5 megapixel stills, has a swiveling 3” LCD, a built-in LED flashlight and charges via USB. There’s no optical zoom and the 4X digital zoom works when recording at 720p, but not at 1080p. There are four built-in record settings – Macro mode, Motion Detection, Slow Motion and Time Elapse mode – and video stabilization for 720p and 480 modes. One 32GB SD/SDHC card leaves enough room for up to 5 hours recording at 1080p. The S20 costs $180.
