Not everyone needs a full-size camcorder; for many, a pocket camcorder is plenty. In fact, the market has exploded since Pure Digital introduced the Flip Video line, and nearly everyone has been looking to grab some of that market share. Toshiba, too. The company has just issued two new Full HD CAMILEO camcorders, the P20 and S30.
Both record in H.264 and capture up to 1080p resolution, and they both have new 3" touch panels on the rear with a revamped user interface. The P20 offers a 5MP sensor, while the S30 has an 8MP sensor -- that's the main difference between the pair. These two will be available in the third quarter 2010 throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa, but there's no word yet on a North American release. Both use a pistol-grip design, have a 10x digital zoom, an HDMI port, miniUSB 2.0 port, and composite video output. They also log footage on an SD, SDXC or SDHC card, and both make it simple to upload clips via YouTube and Picasa.
