Wow, there’s just a ton of CES news coming in, I went and grabbed a 10 minute shower this morning and came back with about 50 new emails. I’ve got five browser windows open with an average of 20 tabs open per browser. Anyway, Toshiba just announced the new Camileo S30 HD Camcorder that can do up to 1080P and has 16X zoom for getting in close on your subject. The camera is small with a rotating LCD screen and comes in at 4.2 ounces and even has an HDMI port and it will set you back only $180.
