Toshiba Camileo BW10

Can only charge through USB ; Doesn't do well in low light situations ; Blotchy zoom ; Can't multi-delete or zoom-in on photos on device

Small, portable, and waterproof, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is well suited for capturing moments from a summertime pool party. While quality isn't the greatest, it's effortless to use, and its anti-shake feature will appeal to users who want to capture...

Toshiba Camileo BW10 Camcorder (yellow)


Toshiba's Camileo BW10 is a simple, waterproof minicamcorder. And by simple, I mean it does little more than shoot full HD-resolution video and 5-megapixel photos on land and in the water to depths of 6.5 feet for up to 60 minutes. If you're looking...

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is easy to use, waterproof, and small and lightweight.

The BW10 has almost no extra features, lacks embedded editing and sharing software, and produces merely passable HD video.

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a basic, waterproof minicamcorder that's good enough to capture a casual cannonball into a pool, but not more treasured memories.

Toshiba Camileo BW10 1080p Waterproof Camcorder


Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

"This camera shoot pretty decent video in high light."


If you just want to shoot video and then do edith with your own tools. You can't beat this. I picked mine up at HH Gregg for $59, display model.

Smiple, good video, no software needed. Records in MP4 which is easily viewable on Windows 7. Feels solid. Has a little on board memory.

Records in Mp4 Win xp dosen't like it. At least on one of my machines. Image is a bit shakey when walking. Of course digital zoom is useless.

Toshiba Camileo BW10 Digital Camcorder


I didn't buy this to be a high-end camera solution. I bought it for my 10 year old daughter, who shows a talent for making movies. It syncs with her iPad (Camera Connection Kit), and lets her take movies that are good enough for her needs. The price...

But too many warning of Lead & Mercury & caution battery can explode. Charging from my computer, it crashed my computer, so in reading the booklet, I will get a regular 120 V charger not included as the booklet describes. Haven't done all this yet,...
