Having a camera small enough to hold in one hand comfortably, but pack enough recording power to make it worth your while isn't a new feat, but it is indeed something that we still look forward to. Not that there's plenty of options out there, mind you. But, when something like the Camileo S30 and P20 break cover, and look as attractive as they do, we can't help but get excited about the future of our 1080p recording endeavors.

Today, Toshiba officially unveiled their pair of new handheld camcorders. Both cameras feature the ability to record video at 1080p, which should make all of the HD fans out there plenty happy. Both cameras also promote the fact that you'll be able to upload images to YouTube with ease. And, when you're recording everything that you can, why wouldn't you want to show it off, right?

The S30 is the high-profile device of the two. It features the ability to shoot still images at 8MP. It also features image stabilization, and a touch-sensitive menu system. As for the P20? That will offer you still images at 5MP. The pair of cameras only have a UK release date at this point. The S30 is set to launch some time in January of next year, while the P20 will hit retail shelves in October of this year. You'll be able to buy the latter for £199.99, while the S30 will run you a cool £139.99.
