Toshiba adds 3D and Wi-Fi to Camileo minicamcorder lineup, picks up where Flip let off
Toshiba has introduced two new compact digital video cameras, the Camileo Z100, which has a 3D capture mode, and the Camileo Air10, a Flip-style camcorder that features built-in WiFi.
LAS VEGAS--The Flip may be dead but Toshiba's Camileo line isn't.
The company introduced two new mini digital camcorders at CES, one--the Z100--offers stereoscopic 3D recording, and the other--the Air10--has built-in WiFi that allows you to post videos on the fly to social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
The Camileo Z100 3D camcorder is a barrel-style camcorder that will hit stores in April for $219. It records in both 2D as well as the 3D format and has a flip-out 2.8-inch, glasses-free 3D LCD touch-screen display that shifts to 2D when you want.
Alas, there's no optical zoom, but there's 120x digtial zoom in 2D mode and 8x digital zoom in 3D mode.
As for the Air10, it's a Flip-style model that captures 1080p video, has a 2-inch LCD, 5-megapixel CMOS sensor with back side illumination technology, and a 16X digital zoom, as well as the aforementioned built-in Wi-Fi. (Note: Flip Video cameras were set to get integrated Wi-Fi when Cisco decided to cancel the new Wi-Fi model last year.)
As an added bonus, the Camileo Air10 also can be used as a wireless Webcam. It's set to ship in February for $149 and seems to only be available in red. We'll let you know how the image quality stacks up as soon as we get review samples.
