Lousy sound and Toshiba KNOWS it!,
This review is from: Toshiba Camileo H30 Camcorder - UK version (Camera)
I bought this camera because the Gadget Show had recommended it. A 1080p camera for less than £180 sounded too good to be true and so it proved to be. Picture quality is superb but the controls default every time you switch it off and you have to go through the whole selection process again every time you switch it on.
That however is not the worst of it.
The sound quality is appalling. No matter what you do - mount on a tripod, operate the controls by the remote control - there is an annoying loud clicking on the sound track.
I went on line and discovered that others had experienced this and the sound is the internal microphone picking up the sound of the autofocus motor!
The autofocus motor works continuously so there is nothing you can do to avoid the noise as there is no external microphone port on this camera.
In other words, this is a fault that afflicts the entire range. Toshiba knows about it and has done NOTHING to rectify it!
Avoid this so-called bargain like the plague! I'm returning mine today!
