Toshiba Camileo SX900


This traditionally shaped camcorder from Toshiba crams in specs and skills you'd expect to find in much more expensive models. With a 9x optical zoom, 14 megapixel stills, the ability to shoot in Full 1080p HD, 1080i at 60fps and measuring 33x55x111mm,...

Camcorders built like the SX900 don’t normally elicit as much excitement as Flip-style models, but this has all the trappings of a top end model without the price tag. At £250, it delivers great video and is loaded up with enough features for even...

Der Toshiba Camileo SX900 ist ein mäßiger HD-Camcorder mit Mini-Fest­speicher (0,05 GB) und Speicherkarte (ein Steck­platz). Klassische läng­liche Bauform (horizon­taler Camcorder). Günstig. Liefert nur mäßige Videos (Note: 3,6). Braucht viel Licht....

Qualitäts­urteil: ausreichend (3,6) ; Video: ausreichend (3,6) ; Foto: befriedigend (3,4) ; Ton: ausreichend (3,8) ; Hand­habung: befriedigend (3,2) ; Akku­lauf­zeit: mangelhaft (5,1) ; Vielseitig­keit: ausreichend (3,7)

Toshiba Camileo SX900


Le Camileo SX9000 de Toshiba est un modèle intéressant, au format hybride entre caméscope de poche et caméscope de paume, qui offre une bonne qualité d'image dans de multiples définitions.

taille et design minimalistes, bonne qualité, facile à utiliser, présence d’un zoom optique 9X, câble HDMI fourni

faiblesse du sta.bilisateur, molette de zoom peu pratique, difficultés à cadrer les photos

Dommage que le zoom soit difficilement utilisable à caused’une molette peu précise et que la qualité des photos, aussi correctesoit-elle, corresponde à seulement 8 millions de pixels et non pas à 14millions comme annoncé. De même, la prévisualisation à...

Toshiba Camileo SX900


Toshiba har satsat på en liten och lätt kamera som har få knappar.

Enkel och behändig

Dålig bild i dämpad belysning ; Dålig kvalitetskänsla

Toshiba Camileo SX900


Toshiba har med Camileo SX900 satset på et kompakt og lett kamera med få knapper.

Enkelt og hendig

Dårlige bilder ; i dempet belysning ; Kvalitetsfølelse

Toshiba SX900 er billig, kompakt og enkelt i bruk. Utendørs i dagslys fungerer det ok, med skarpe farger. Fargene er litt overmettet, og det mangler detaljer i skygger, og i innendørs belysning er vi mindre enn imponert. Kveldslys fungerer knapt i det...

La videocamera Toshiba Camileo SX900 integra un'ottica zoom con fattore d'ingrandimento di 9x con lo zoom digitale che arriva sino a 12x. La funzione di riconoscimento dei volti individua sino a dodici persone presenti nella scena.

eenvoudige bediening, handig formaat

inzoomen gaat stug, kanteling van het scherm

De Toshiba SX900 is een prettige camcorder voor gebruikers die niet te veel poespas willen. De SX900 is makkelijk in het gebruik, de verschillende scènes zijn makkelijk te vinden en de camcorder weegt haast niets. Daar staat dan wel weer tegenover dat...
