First Look: Toshiba Camileo BW10

1:27 /

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

Hey, I'm Joshua Goldman, Senior Editor with CNET and this is a look at the Toshiba Camileo BW10. It's a waterproof minicamcorder that can shoot at resolutions up to 1080p and full HD and can survive being underwater down to 6.5 feet for up to 60 minutes. It's easy to use too. All you do is turn it on and wait several seconds and then press record or you can also take 5-megapixel photos. That's really where the excitement ends though with the BW10. It's not a bad minicamcorder. Its video and photo qualities are decent for sharing online at small sizes if nothing else. But, it's missing a lot of the stuff I've come to expect from these devices such as embedded editing sharing software and a flip-out USB connector. Instead, you get a basic YouTube uploader and some trial software on a disc and a Micro-USB cable. There's no shooting options beyond the changing resolutions and capturing photos while shooting video. There is face detection too. The upside is so few features, though, is that there's nothing to get in the way of capturing videos. So, if all you really after is a basic inexpensive minicamcorder for poolside or other damp environments, it's an option. I'm Joshua Goldman and that's the Toshiba BW10.
