Small and waterproof, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 can record your underwater adventure in 1080p.

Simple to use ; Light weight ; Waterproof ; Stabilization software ; Can take a picture while recording

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....

Toshiba Camileo BW10 review

 

Aquatic skills aside, the waterproof Toshiba Camileo BW10 is an inexpensive, easy-to-use, high-definition camcorder with a 5-megapixel camera -- just don't expect to be overwhelmed by features or picture quality.

Waterproof to 2m ; 1080p video recording ; Easy to use ; Video lamp

Bare-bones accessory selection ; Limited controls and settings ; No optical zoom or image stabiliser ; Mediocre picture quality

It might be missing many of the features and accessories you'd expect from a camcorder but, compared to many other models, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is extremely easy to use and, crucially, much cheaper. As our highly scientific bucket test proved,...

So long as you're not expecting Hollywood-esque footage, the BW10 from Toshiba is a decent (and cheap) waterproof camcorder.

Lightweight, very portable ; Well priced ; Simple interface, very easy to pick up and start shooting

Only waterproof to 2m ; Horrible audio from the built-in microphone ; Very poor still image quality

Waterproof camcorders at a cheap price point are ideal for casual use and YouTube uploading, and that's the core group of users that the BW10 addresses. It's not going to be suitable to replace a dedicated still camera by the beach and its video...

Summer is almost here and wouldn't it be nice if you have a video camera that can take images underwater? Toshiba's Camileo BW10 is one of the few pocket-sized video cameras in the market that is waterproof, allowing you to bring it to the poolside or...

Construction; Waterproof; Ease of use; Well-labelled buttons; 1080p recording; Compatible with SDXC cards

Lacks advanced settings; Using 10x digital zoom in video mode produces shaky footage; No video cable and AC charger included with the package

"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.

Not Mac Friendly...

 

I had to send it back since I have a Mac computer and laptop and it is not compatible with any Mac.

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,...
