The Power of One Infographic

We do have a few small complaints, though. We were disappointed to see that the image stabilisation option only works at 720p or lower resolutions, and even then we didn’t feel that it made a noticeable difference to the smoothness of the video. The little microphone that is situated on the back of the viewfinder screen is also a little underpowered. It picks up a reasonable amount of audio detail, but the audio playback sounds a bit thin.

Toshiba Camileo P30

Compact yet versatile, with a decent range of manual controls

Verdict

If all you want is an easy-to-use camcorder for shooting quick YouTube video clips then the ‘point and shoot’ simplicity and slightly more solid construction of the Flip is still hard to beat. However, if you’re a little more ambitious than that, and you want a lightweight camcorder that can shoot longer clips for editing into a proper movie project, then you’ll definitely prefer the superior quality and versatility of the Camileo P30. ®
