Toshiba Camileo B10 - Image Quality and Verdict

Score

Sections

Being a pocket Internet camcorder, the Camileo B10 comes with software built into the device itself. Called Camileo Uploader, it’s limited to just sending your footage to YouTube, Facebook and TwitVid, and your images to Facebook and Picasa. There are no facilities for trimming your clips or improving your photos in any way.

Previous Toshiba models haven’t excelled in their video performance, particularly in low light. The B10 shows some improvements, but this is still not the best image quality we’ve seen from this class of camcorder. There is less grain in low light than earlier Camileos, but the image is still quite dark and colours lose fidelity. In good lighting, colours are a little over-saturated, but detail levels are decent and the picture is sharper than budget camcorders have traditionally produced.

Verdict

The Toshiba Camileo B10 has a few more features than many pocket Internet camcorders, particularly the fun time lapse and slow motion options, but image quality is decidedly mediocre. Fortunately, the pricing is also middling at under £100. So whilst this isn’t a particularly groundbreaking model, with nothing to single it out for special attention from the crowd, it is at least good value.
