Toshiba’s new Full HD sportcam CAMILEO BW10 is resistant to rain and sand and even captures underwater clips

Toshiba has announced the Camileo BW10 Sportcam, a compact full-HD camcorder able to easily withstand rain and dust designed for outdoor enthusiasts with an affinity for taking their hobbies to the extreme.

Maximum fun in any weather

Sporty days on a sandy beach or an exciting snorkelling trip are all worth shooting in excellent quality and the CAMILEO BW10 is most flexible device for all these occasions. The device is waterproof up to two meters and can be operated under water, in heavy rain, or an environment with high levels of humidity, such as a rain forest or a greenhouse. The rubber cover also protects the camcorder from mechanical shocks, dust and sand, making the CAMILEO BW10 an ideal companion for shooting on the beach or in the desert. This small camcorder measures only 22 mm x 55 mm x 107 mm and weighs no more than 114g. It fits easily into a small pocket and is always at hand for spontaneous recording.

High quality video clips and stills

The camcorder offers Full HD resolution (1080p/30fps), embedded video stabilisation and a powerful 10x digital zoom for far-away shots. By the touch of two buttons users can easily and quickly switch between video and photo mode. The CAMILEO BW10’s integrated face detector allows users to take portraits by automatically enhancing colours and exposure of up to twelve faces in the picture. Furthermore, the maximum sensitivity of ISO 1600 enables the camcorder to record great shots, even in unfavourable ambient light conditions.

Share your experiences

The fashionable CAMILEO BW10 displays video clips and photos stored on a SDXC card with a capacity of up to 64GB on a brilliant 5.1 cm (2.0“) LCD panel. To watch clips and photos together with friends on a big screen, content can be streamed to any HD display via the HDMI Digital AV output. Users can also transfer content easily to YouTube by the push of a button with the help of the bundled CAMILEO Uploader software.

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is available at Hi FI Corporation in silver, yellow and turquoise for a recommended retail price of R1 699 (incl VAT).
