1.0 out of 5 stars Good video, awful audio, 18 Dec 2010
This review is from: Toshiba Camileo H30 Camcorder - UK version (Electronics)
I was looking for a cheap full HD camcorder to make You-Tube videos with and decided that this seemed to offer the best that I could afford.
The 1920 X 1080p video is excellent giving a good range of colours although in lower light levels (indoors under modern low wattage bulbs) it can struggle a little. It is feature packed, offering slow motion and stop frame recording as well as a host of picture quality settings. The 10 mega pixel still camera is definitely an added bonus as is the lens which is decidedly wider angled than I am used to from my previous camcorder.

The biggest let down (and it is an important feature to think about) is the horrendous audio it produces. There is a constant clicking noise from the zoom motor and the recorded sounds are gritty and full of "white noise" which makes it impossible to use. I have resorted to using a separate recording device for my videos!

The remote control is basic but very handy.

Overall I would NOT recommend this camera to anyone due entirely to it's appalling audio capability!
