Today’s digital age has made it possible to capture life’s important moments on video and photos. Most of today’s smartphones include built in cameras so that if the moment arises one can pull out their phone and capture it on video or pictures. However, most smartphone cameras have limited capabilities and don’t always produce the highest quality video at full framerates.
The CAMILEO® X200 1080p HD Camcorder from Toshiba delivers high quality video and high resolution photos at a decent price. The ultra compact design of this handheld video camera makes it perfect for taking videos of those special family moments. It fits neatly in the palm of the hand and the control buttons are all within reach.
The X200 has numerous features designed to deliver full HD quality video with resolutions up to 1920x1080p. The 12X optical zoom, 60X digital autofocus helps bring the action up close and personal.
The built in Electronic Image Stabilization helps to eliminate the jittery video that used to be big complaint from people that used the older generation camcorders. The 3-inch color LCD touch screen has a built in swivel so it can be moved to whatever position you need it.
Toshiba included their CAMILEO Uploader software to make it easier to transfer files from the X200 to any computer using the USB cable. The images can be saved either to the built in 1GB storage or saved to an optional SD/SDHC/SDXC card up to 128GB.

The X200 HD Camcorder delivers nothing but awesome high resolution pictures and the HD videos were spectacular. The CAMILEO Uploader feature worked like a charm, it made uploading all of our videos to their YouTube channel a snap.
The one negative is that the battery power did not last much over 30 minutes.
We would give the X200 just under 4.0 stars out of a possible 5.0 stars.
