Toshiba Camileo S30 and P20 to take on pocket camcorder market

Toshiba has sharpened its attack on the pocket camcorder market with the arrival of the next generation of Camileos at IFA2010. The Camileo S30 and P20 both shoot Full HD video at 30fps, but now feature a touchscreen 3-inch swivel display which used to be dead to the hand.

There's 10x digital zoom for any fool wishing to use it plus video stabilisation technology, as well as ports for HDMI, USB 2.0 and composite cables. Neither model has any on board storage. All of that you provide yourself with SD cards. Should you wish to use the bundled software, there's also one button YouTube and Picasa uploading too.

The difference between the two devices is that the £139.99 Camileo S30 is marginally more premium with a thinner 59 x 106 x 19mm and lighter 141g frame and will snap 8MP shots. It's out in January 2011. The Camileo P20 only goes up to 5MP, weighs 151g and measures 74 x 11 x 22mm. You can pick that one up for £119.99 from October.
