Toshiba H30, 28 Jun 2010
Having done quite a bit of research on camcorders and being quite a gadget junkie I am embarrassed to say that I got this purchase all wrong.
It is a very poor piece of kit from a reputable company. As other reviewers have said it is not at the top end price bracket, nonetheless you expect more for your money.
The buttons are flimsy, the fact it goes back to default every time you switch it off is an unbelievably bad piece of design. Most importantly however is the picture quality which is poor. Colours are washed out to the extreme - even in good light. In dim conditions it simply cannot handle it - the picture is very grainy and disappointing.
I bought my camera for 180 and was happy to sell it on for 100 quid a couple of months later just to get shut of it.
I will be spending a little more next time - lesson learnt!
