The Curse Of Toshiba Strikes Too Often,
This review is from: Toshiba Camileo P100 Full HD Video Camcorder (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought this item hoping for better luck, my previous Camileo Pro HD had been a great camera, but the first one broke, then the warranty replacement started to only switch on when it felt like it.
In the meantime I bought a Sanyo Xacti VPC CG20, great, easy to use, but the screen got broken, so i looked for an upgrade, enter the Camileo P100.
Looked good, tried it but the replay button caused the camera controls to freeze, I could only reset it by removing the battery, so I requested a replacement. This worked fine for a week, then developed the same problem.
I would suggest you do not buy this camera for the follwing reasons:
2) Zoom controls and video buttons make operation clumsy.
3) on screen menu is a pain in the ass to use, previous Camileo Pro HD had a simple joystick, the P100 is too fiddley.
I am now waiting for a refund, there are better cameras out there, don't buy the P100.
