Toshiba's Camileo P100 and B10 Camcorders Record 1080p on a Budget

Toshiba's Camileo P100 and B10 Camcorders Record 1080p on a Budget

For every gem you find on YouTube, there are at least a dozen crappy videos recorded in standard definition. It's not YouTube's fault -- the Google owned video sharing site came into existence before affordable hand-held camcorders capable of shooting HD videos emerged. But as long as companies like Toshiba keep releasing high-tech gear at low-tech prices, we expect to see higher quality videos posted online.

Take Toshiba's newly introduced Camileo P100 and B10 camcorders, for example. As the more expensive of the two, the P100 will only set rookie directors back $180 (MSRP), yet it offers Full HD 1080p recording, a 5x optical zoom, and a 16MP photo resolution. It also sports a swiveling 3-inch LCD touchscreen display and is highly portable at only 4.7 ounces.

Still too much skrilla? The Camileo B10 also shoots Full HD 1080p video, but costs just $120 (MSRP). This one boasts a built-in 2-inch LCD screen, 16x digital zoom, and an even leaner profile at just 3 ounces. Both camcorders feature an HDMI port, an Internet Upload Button, motion detection, time-lapse, face tracking, and a webcam mode.

Nice!

but in this economy,..if you cant afford a vacation then why would you need a camera :P

Or we could just think like the gvmnt, then we could take airforce one everywhere for vacation like a euro vacation or PR and overpay for everything. If thats the case then why not buy this camera for 20 times its highest competitor :P

Pretty sweet Toshiba is certainly vying for the flip video market a lot more than they have been with Cisco discontinuing that product line.

@animatortom I know what you mean if you can't buy enough food for your family how are you going to buy a camera even if it is only $120

"Good to know that these models are available, I just don't have anyone to give one to at this moment. Even my nephews. who are in their early teens, have smartphones, and they are pretty happy with the recording features and quality of their phones. Usually now , they upload to Facebook all the time, before it was Youtube. They just can't stop showing off their pets and wrestling moves on their wall, kids."
