Probably No Camileos in the U.S.

There's no mention of any of the Camileo camcorders on the USA website of Toshiba. Oddly, on their U.K. website, they have them listed under the Computer category.
In any case, I would hope the Camileo H20 and P30 have been greatly improved from the Camileo H10 from last year. A reviewer named Asher posted a review video on YouTube of the H10, which is not favorable and ends with a startling and hard to believe revelation about that model's true origin.

Camileo P30

Hi guys,
I'm really tempted to buy one of these cams and use it as a safety long shot at weddings and events. Have you seen actual footage from this cam? Is there a rapidshare link to download some footage?

Any advice would be appreciated.

i have a camera like this, the Aiptek Action HD. they are nice cameras for what they cost, but I doubt you'll get a very professional looking picture out of them. Also they usually have autofocus that you can't turn off which might ruin your wideshot.

camileo p30

Thank you Peter.
I didn't notice that the AF canot turn off. This is a big problem when shooting in a place full of camera flashes....
Any other similar (cheap) option?
