Toshiba has introduced two new, full HD 1080p models to its Camileo compact camcorders series that are ready for travel and easy sharing on the web along the way.

Both of these pocket video cameras support SD/SDHC/SDXC cards up to 64GB, host mini-HDMI and mini-USB 2.0 ports, and an "easy upload" button for direct uploading to YouTube, Facebook, Picasa and Twitvid.

The Camileo P100 (pictured above) is the higher-end model of the two with 8x optical zoom in HD mode (16x digital zoom otherwise), a 3-inch touch screen that swivels outward, and the capability to shoot up to 16-megapixel stills with the 8-megapixel CMOS sensor. The P100 also sports a pause button (not found on the B10 and most other Camileo models).

Speaking of the B10, this entry-level model isn't shabby either. It also has 16x digital zoom and can capture 16-megapixel photos. However, the quality won't be as good with the 5-megapixel CMOS sensor. The B10 sports a 2-inch LCD monitor, but it only weighs 3.8 ounces.

Pricing hasn't been revealed yet, but it will ship first to Europe, the Middle East and Africa during the second quarter.
