Toshiba Camileo P30 unboxing video

As you may know, last year we conducted a small group test of digital camcorders as we were looking for for something new to record our unboxing videos on. When we conducted our group test we set a budget of £200 – 250 and at the time the only HD camcorders to fall in to that price bracket were only capable of 720p and in fact not all the cameras on test were HD capable at that price point.

Quite a lot has changed and less than a year later most new camcorders can record 1080p or at least 1080i furthermore many manufacturers have achieved this and have managed to lower prices!

So here we are looking at one of the latest camcorders from Toshiba, the Camileo P30. This is a pistol-grip style camcorder that looks similar to the Xacti range from Sanyo although the P30 is somewhat smaller and lighter than the equivalent Xacti model.

So as always we are starting our review of the Toshiba Camileo P30 with the unboxing video which you can see below. I’m going to put the P30 through its paces over the next few weeks and will have a written review for you soon.
