This is anything from £300 - £450 elsewhere (£444 at pcwb).

10x optical zoom
40gb hdd
sdhc card slot
3" touch lcd screen
quick start (0.9secs)

I've attached a voucher for camcorders, but i couldnt get it to work.

This is the 40gb version of the 80gb one which was posted here a few weeks ago (went to 299 degrees)

You'll have problems finding reviews of these on the net, but there are only minor differences bewteen the whole toshiba range of camcorders

oh and dont forget quidco!

is this the right battery for it?
(im still waiting for mine to be delivered)

http://batteryonline.org.uk/Camcorder-Batteries/CamcorderBattery.php/TOSHIBA/54972/GSC-BT7/

This replacement battery is compatible with the following models:
TOSHIBA:
Gigashot GSC-A100F Gigashot GSC-A40F Gigashot GSC-K40H Gigashot GSC-K80H

Never hearf of these people, but on fleabay the battery is like £70

Is the sd slot for stills only?
#4
Spec suggests its for stills and video, could be useful with the 32gb cards (although they are expansive at the moment).

What I'd like to know is how long it can record for at highest definition with the 40gb hard drive?

Its OK just worked out they've got their figures round the wrong way looks like 5hrs 40mins at highest settings and about 9.5hrs on lowest.
#5
How long does a battery last in one of these though?
#6
any reviews around of this?
#7
Just a warning - try & find the spec for startup time!

i have a Hard Disk camcorder (a JVC Everio) - it takes 15 seconds to start up - this is an eternity when wanting the camera to capture those priceless moments your kids have.

Unless the OP has edited the first post it says quick start (0.9 sec).

My apologies - a good deal in that case!
#11
Jerec would love to know if you could give some feedback on the 80GB version assuming it is almost identical. Is the quick start feature effective? Very interested in this product but looking for the right HD HDD camcorder bargain.
#12
Has anyone got a link to the 80Gb deal posted here? (my search revealed bo-diddley)

Edit: Found it http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/216859/toshiba-gsc-k80he-80gb-hard-drive-c/

are you sure it was "hi def "camcorder with hard drive? By the price of £200 it could be just a HDD camcorder and not Hi-Def,
#16
Does this camcorder take film with sd cards when the hdd is full and at what quality.

Unless I'm being daft this works out to be around £200 with quidco and the attached voucher anyway doesn't it?

Not the same camera... your link is to their budget range which records onto SD cards one in this thread with a built in hard drive.

Hi folks,

I bought the 80gb version of this camera and I am very happy with it. Just took it on holiday and got some lovely video footage with it.

The 80gb version from comet cost me £284. It records 11.5 hours to the hard drive.

The manual states it supports 8gb sdhc but this may just be because it was the highest available at the time.

The battery lasts about 2-2.5 hours.

I think the reason these cameras are so cheap is because Toshiba are desperate to get into the camcorder market and they aim to be number 2 by 2010. To do this they need to sell alot of these cameras which they are aiming to do by entering the budget market.

The only downfalls of this camera are: The image stabaliser is electronic and so isn't the best in the world. I always use mine on a tripod even if i'm holding it just to eliminate camera wobble.

Also in low light the camera looks more like standard definition. But most of my filming has been outside so I don't really have a problem with this.

If you look in the 80gb version thread i did post a small video clip which might help some people. But I think for the money people will be happy with their purchase.

I'm not sure what price people can get this camera for from this company but remember it is only around £250 from comet (I used a £15 off voucher which I don't know if it still works). If you get it from comet at least you can take it back if you are not impressed.

Hope this helps.

Matt.

you only had to say is that " I was commenting about the previous post", All your insult does is show all the other members of the forum your intelligence level.

Edit. If you had used the quote system as is normal practice, there would have not been any confusion in the first place.

just going costco..... will get photo and spec sheet
#31
I was in Comet this afternoon and took a look at one of these. It wasn’t intentional as I was looking at a Sony Memory Stick Camcorder and I suddenly wondered what this big thing was; it was the Toshiba. The form factor of the flash based camcorders really makes this model look freakishly large and heavy. I’m not saying it’s a problem but it was very noticeable.
