9 Reasons Against

Toshiba Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Camcorders

Toshiba is one of the unremarkable camcorder manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and Toshiba also has unexceptional ratings for its medium sensor size camcorders.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have an interchangeable lens to this video camera and we think the HS900, or the HDC-SD90 both from Panasonic or the CamOne Fly Cam One which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
