Poor Battery Life

A few Toshiba Camileo Clip owners who bought it agreed that it did not have a good battery life. W. Moore said in their review of this camcorder “Poor focus using the camera and poor battery life - tried to return” . W. Moore also mentioned “This is no replacement as most photo's blur unless you have the steadiest of hand and the battery life is poor, needing a constant recharge, even when not used”.

Average Maximum Memory Card Size

With a maximum memory card size of 64 gigabytes, the Camileo Clip has a fairly typical maximum memory card size compared to most of the other camcorders of a similar spec and age to the Camileo Clip.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 64GB maximum memory card size video cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Canon Legria HF S30[plb_1125145_price], or the JVC GZ-V515[plb_1286959_price].

If this medium sensor size camcorder maximum memory card size is too small for you then you might want to look at the Toshiba Camileo X150[plb_1474876_price] (128GB) which also has a higher rating.

Average Digital Zoom

At 10 times zoom factor, the Camileo Clip has a pretty average digital zoom compared to most of the other camcorders of this age and spec.

The Camileo Clip has a relatively typical video recording time (1.5 hours) compared to most of the other video cameras of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 1.5h video recording time video cameras to this camcorder and we think the Canon Legria HF S30[plb_1125145_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this video camera video recording time is not long enough for you then you might want to look at the HMX-F90[pl_1538898_price] (1.6h), the HMX-QF30[pl_1535885_price] (1.67h), or the HMX-W300[pl_1347071_price] (2h) all from Samsung which is also higher rated.
