Toshiba today announces two new members of its Camileo range of highly portable camcorders, both of which are capable of shooting in full (1080p) high definition mode.

The Camileo H20 is an upgraded version of the H10 launched last summer, and features 1440 x 1080 shooting (not quite the standard widescreen 1920 x 1080 you’d expect from HDTV or a Blu-ray disc, but a fair compromise for a handheld device), 5x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom, video stabilisation, night shooting mode, YouTube upload facility, 5-megapixel digital stills and HDMI output.

It has a three-inch LCD screen and records on to SDHCs of up to 32GB. Not a bad bundle for around £180.

The Camileo P30 succeeds last year’s Camileo Pro HD and features much the same functionality as the H20, only as an upright model rather than a barrel and with a 2.5-inch LCD screen. Available for around £150.

Both models will be launched in February.
