Toshiba Releases the Waterproof Camileo BW10 Pocket Camcorder

Posted by at 10:01 am on April 21, 2011

Toshiba has announced a new pocket camcorder. Its Camileo BW10 is its first waterproof video camera and can submerge in up to 6.5 feet of water. The BW10 is said to be rugged above ground as well, although Toshiba hasn’t said whether there’s any extra dust- or shockproofing.

As a camcorder, it captures 1080p MPEG-4 video and five-megapixel stills with a light-sensitive CMOS sensor, an f2.8 lens, and image stabilization helping underwater or in low light. Breaking slightly from the pack, it uses a micro USB connector rather than a direct USB plug, but it still has bundled software to help upload to YouTube.

The camera depends on an SDXC card slot to hold video and lasts for about 70 minutes of non-stop movies on its battery.

Stores should already have the BW10 for $150 in silver and yellow.
