"It's been a while since we first caught wind of the mysterious Toshiba Camileo S10, but the pocket camcorder has finally broken loose, and it's looking like a pretty solid competitor to the Flip Mino HD and the Kodak Zi6 -- it amps up the video resolution to 1080p and also takes five megapixel stills."
The ultra-portable camcorder market is about to get more crowded with the Toshiba Camileo S10. The Camileo brings 1080p video recording to the game and at an estimated base price of $181, it sounds like it will fly off the shelves. Well, along with a large supply of SD cards since the Camileo has only 128MB of built in memory. Short of some supreme software interface, I don't see this setting itself apart from the competition though. So thos of you who already have a Flip Mino HD, your purchase is still sound. I would really love to see one of these mini camcorders come with optical zoom and large enough internal memory to store more than half a thought, but one step at a time!
