good deal for the money, but?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Camileo H30 Full HD Camcorder - Silver/Black (Camera)
this is a full hd camcorder with a 5x optical zoom for $180 so be too critical on it would not be fair! it is better than the standard def jvc everio i just got rid of. it strong point that it take 10 megapixel still photos that look quite good, if you can hold the camera completely still! if not they get blurry quickly. and one thing i do not understand is that if i take hd video and put it on my computer it looks really good, but if i hook the camcorder to my 42" hdtv to veiw it looks really hideous i mean really grainy and pixelated for some reason? i have not tried to convert and burn on a dvd yet to see how they will look, but that will be my next project. the software that comes with it is ok at best! but hey it is free and is usable! so my verdict is! for youtubing this would be an excellent choice. for a videophile or someone who make their own blu ray disc's look else where because this camcorder will probably dissapoint you? and like i said the photo's and video's look really horrible on an hdtv through the hdmi port. :o)

I did make a dvd and it turned out better than i expected! Looks great on a standard def tv. And acceptable on an hd tv!

well if you what you watched was recorded past x5 zoom, it would be a 720p recording so you may have to tune your tv if its 1080p

I found this discussion very useful in my decision to choose this item. I have been confused about the resolution on my TV and I changed to 1080p and not only is the video from my camera better, so is my cable...!

It was "hideous" on the tv because the tv is to big so it expands the pixels
