  • Pros

    • Sleek, slim design
    • Loads of extras
    • Large 3-inch display
  • Cons

    • Awkward menu navigation
    • Video quality just barely "good enough"


Quick Take

The sleek design and added extras make the S20 appealing, but the video quality and awkward menu navigation detract from an otherwise terrific value. 

With CES just around the corner, manufacturers are readying new devices to replace the current crop of HD camcorders, which means great deals on camcorders that will most likely output the same video quality as their predecessors.

It’s with that caveat that I review the Toshiba Camileo S20, the pocket-sized version of the Camileo H30 DCR reviewed back in April, and the smallest of a lineup that also includes the higher-end X100.

DCR praised the Camileo H30 for its value and extras; Toshiba is one of the few manufacturers to include the HDMI cable. Is the S20 also a great value buy? Read this Camileo S20 review to find out.
