I was looking for a low cost video camera mostly for YouTube videos and this is one of the few with a touch screen than can be rotated to face you while you make your videos. You can see what is in the video and not have to guess if your shot is covered..
This does have a HD option and so far has produced great videos.
Some of the touch screen options seem a little cheap on appearance and the sound that plays is not the best. However, the recording sound is great.
Light weight and fits the bill to a tee so far....if problems surface, I'll update

I personally think that this is a very good camera. It is small, can fit in pockets. Also, it is a lot less than regular camcorders. Additionally, unlike most cameras of its price, this camera can go up to 64Gb. People have said that they feel that the material is cheap, but I am happy about it because we are cheap, that's why we bought it. (For example, I wouldn't expect to be paying $100 for a camera made out of solid platinum or something, you know?). For the quality of the videos and pictures, well, it LOOKS very bad on the screen, but when you put it on a computer or a TV, it is actually VERY good. (meaning, the definition of the data is good, but the screen isn't HD). I absolutely love this camera and would recommand anyone who wants to get the best out of the least.

I bought this to use but ended giving it to my son. I really loved the price. Cannot find anything even close in this price range.
I found that the picture quality is as good as my Cannon Elf and Video is just as good and the file size is much smaller than the Cannon.
I love the portability due to its size. The screen size is just right. Sound is great too. Battery life is great last all day for me no problem.
I liked that it comes with a case for your belt.
I do have some things about that I do not like.
I do not like the button controls as they are abit unuser friendly and are too many. Could have just used a 4 way rocker like most do.
I have a very hard time trying to use it and make any adjustments while just using one hand.
I cannot use it with my Mac and there is no support for Macs that is why I gave it to my son.
So to sum it up if you have a pc then it is great for the money!!

This is a good little camcorder!
It is the only one, at this price point, where you can flip the viewscreen around and actually see yourself while video blogging!
(The current FLIP, Sony Bloggie, and Kodak, equivalents, do not let you see the viewscreen while recording yourself.)

It doesn't deserve 1 star... I doubt that review was about the S30... it probably was about the S20.

Anyways, for the price, especially on sale for $99; you can't go wrong.

I wanted a camera I could put in my barn to deliver an HDMI signal to my house so I could see what my animals were doing. A lot of cameras wouldn't do it, this one does:
Live feed out the HDMI port.
Doesn't turn off after set time.
Accepts external power.
It can also do time lapse (which I always wanted to play with) and motion detect, although the motion has to be big to trigger the camera. Still, put next to a bird feeder, it would catch when birds are there.
BTW, a year ago, it seemed that sending HDMI signals 300 ft. would be very expensive, with modems needed on either end of two parallel network cables. Now, repeaters are ~$20 and 50 ft HDMI cables are less than $15. This cheap stuff is working well, no signal degredation.
Yes, it's not the greatest camera, but it's the best I could find for my needs, and it's cheap.

I just purchased the Toshiba Camilei S30 camera and love the features but there are reasons why I might return it.
No.1 - When watching the video played with the HDMI connector or Video connector the annoying time and battery indicator are on the tv screen and cannot be removed.
Can you believe this?
I talked to Toshiba support twice and they confirmed that there's no way to remove it.
Why in the world would I want to see the batterry life indicator constantly on the screen even when I'm using the A.C/ adapter?
Sorry Toshiba, but you need to get advice from Sony & Panasonic on how to eliminate this problem.
If I didn't get a deal on this at Amazon for $99.99 it would had already been sent back but when you download the video from the camera to a computer with MP4 files the problem is eliminated. However, I cannot copy the video direct to my DVD recorder without seeing the time lapse and battery indicator at the top of the screen.
Also, it's very difficult for the touch screen to work.
Most of the time I have to press the desired function 3 or 4 times.
Otherwise, a pretty nice camera.

UPDATE:

I have decided to keep the Toshiba even with the above mentioned problem.
However, I almost returned it for another reason:
When I'm in the menu and I touch the screen for "Video Settings" there are additonal settings available which requires scrolling down on the touch screen.
There's an arrow pointing down but nothing happens when I touch the arrow or place my finger at the top of the screen and scroll down to the bottom.
Toshiba customer service could not figure out the problem but I accidentally did.
