The S20 has three distinct strengths and two glaring weaknesses. On the plus side, it is super slim, has a large (for its class, anyway) 3.0-inch display, and comes loaded with extras like the HDMI cable and mini tripod.
However, it also has one of the more confusing menu navigations schemes of any pocket camcorder, which is not easily dismissed as this is a product class built on simplicity. Also, its video quality is mediocre in decent lighting and sub-par in low light. The rationale for choosing it over the others is that it’s one of the least expensive pocket camcorders on the market.
Ultimately, the Camileo S20 is a “good enough” camcorder. Stacked against the other “good enough” units on the store shelves, Toshiba’s added extras make a compelling case for the Camileo S20.
