Toshiba's budget HD camcorder, the Camileo H10, actually doesn't skimp on features, it seems. The SD-based device records in 720p to its internal 64MB memory, or SDHC cards (up to 8GB, around 4 hours of footage) and has a 10 megapixel CCD. It squeezes in a 5x optical zoom, video stabilization, motion-detection shooting, night mode, HDMI output and a 2.7-inch display. Not bad for $350, and available from the end of July. [Pocket Lint]
They need to come up with a new identifier. Instead of just saying "made in China" or "made in USA of Imported materials," they now need to have "Cloned in China" for example... and maybe expand upon that to include "badly cloned in China" up to "Cloned but improved upon in China"
