Three new models have entered Toshiba's long time running Camileo range of palm-sized camcorders this week, the Clip, X200 and X400. Focusing on the Clip to begin with, this is perhaps the more interesting of the refreshed Camileo trio with the clip on the back of the camcorder (hence, the name) allowing it to be clipped onto various objects for hands free shooting. The Clip runs measurements of just 46.5 x 80 x 16 mm, weighing about 85 grams. It sports a ruggedized, splash-proof casing and 1.5-inch LCD.
Getting a bit deeper into the specs, it does Full HD (1920 x 1080) video recording (at 30 fps in H.264 HD format), has a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor with BSI (back side illumination) technology, an electronic image stabiliser, 10x digital zoom, SD/SDHC/SDXC compatible memory slot and gives connectivity via both mini-HDMI and mini-USB 2.0 ports. The camcorder is capable of taking up to 16MP still shots and comes in four color choices - dark blue, hot red, bright yellow and snow white.
As for the X200 and X400 models, these also pack the aforementioned 5MP CMOS sensor with BSI tech, image stabiliser, mini USB and HDMI ports, SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slot, but both offer a double sized 3-inch LCD. What separates the models is the 12x optical zoom capability on the X200 versus the whopping 23x on the X400.
We have not been informed of pricing at this time, or when Toshiba plans to hit the market with them.
