Toshiba intros Camileo P100 and B10 pocket camcorders, strays from tried-and-true pistol grip

8 Apr

The seasons come and go, but Toshiba’s line of Camileo pocket camcorders tend to look the same, with their pistol grips and flip-out screens. But now, Tosh is getting ready to ship two new models in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, and one of them, at least, takes the company’s design in a different direction. The B10 camcorder has a candy bar shape with a front-facing lens — much like the Flip camcorders that kicked off the pocket cam craze in the first place. The B10 tech gadgets shoot at Full HD resolution, snaps 16 megapixel stills, has 16X digital zoom, and takes SDXC cards as large as 64GB. Prefer the ole’ pistol grip? The P100 boasts the same specs and adds 8X optical zoom — still a rarity in inexpensive pocket cams. Toshiba hasn’t announced pricing yet, though the two will go on sale sometime in the second quarter. In the meantime, check out the press release for more deets.
