We may have become rather fond of our post-Christmas paunches, but being hypocrites of the first water, we want our high-definition camcorders to be ultra-slim. The Toshiba Camileo S20 sports the sort of svelte waistline even Gok Wan couldn't achieve without six months with a personal trainer, or six seconds with a chainsaw.
Many mini-camcorders such as the Flip Video UltraHD or the Kodak Zi8 go for the candybar format, but that puts a severe crimp in your screen size. The S20 goes for the trusty pistol-grip form factor, allowing for a much bigger 76mm (3-inch) flip-out screen.
It's extremely thin, even compared to the candybar camcorders. Inside the slimline frame, the S20 shoots Full HD 1,920x1080-pixel video in H.264 format.
