    Toshiba Camileo X100 HD Camcorder

    The Toshiba Camileo line of high-definition digital camcorders has arrived in the United States. The Camileo X100 ($270) is a great combination of features and specs at an affordable price tag.

    The 1080p-capable X100 is a great option to consider, especially if casual capturing and easy sharing are what you need, and you’d be hard-pressed to find another camcorder with some of the features that recommend it at a sub-$300 price point.

    Specs of the X100

    • 10x optical zoom at a price where digital zoom is typically the only option
    • 4 GB built-in hard drive offers an hour of recording at the highest quality
    • SD slot accommodates flash memory of up to 32 GB (12+ hours recording at the lowest quality)
    • One-touch YouTube share function makes publishing videos to web simple
    • Included mini-HDMI cable gets you big screen-ready right out of the box

    The Toshiba Camileo X100 has very good image quality, 10x optical zoom, and combination of built-in and expandable flash memory. Image stabilization is available at lower resolutions as well.  The X100 is a great step up from the pocket recorders that many of us use for virtually the same price and with little added bulk.

    Sound quality on the Camileo X100 is another plus, particularly when compared to similarly priced options. The optical zoom alone makes the X100 stand out from its competitors..
