Toshiba Camileo BW20 camcorder is one tough cookie
I am quite sure that some of us out there do our very best to make sure that the shiny new device which we just purchased is covered with a layer of protection, but despite our best and most sincere efforts, the inevitable eventually happens, where a momentary lapse of concentration results in the heartbreaking sound of your smartphone hitting the concrete floor from the height of your waist. Another broken screen and a few hundred dollars poorer later with a replacement device, you swear to yourself that your next purchase had better be able to match your legendary butterfingers ability, which is exactly why we are talking about the Toshiba Camileo BW20 camcorder today.
The Toshiba Camileo BW20 camcorder is not only waterproof but shockproof as well, and to dive straight into its extra tough features, here we are with word that it is capable of working just fine even up to 16 feet underwater, and will shrug off dust as well as shocks, brushing off accidental drops of up to five feet. Definitely families and sports enthusiasts who love recording whatever comes their way regardless of the situation will fall in love with the Toshiba Camileo BW20 camcorder, and parents, too, will be able to let their little ones perform some video capture at times without worrying about whether the Camileo BW20 is able to live up to the rigors of a child.
That’s for its durability, how about its imaging performance? Toshiba will not sell itself short with the Camileo BW20, where it boasts of an f/2.2 aperture lens, a 5-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, and video image stabilization so that you can shoot video with greater clarity, even when you are underwater. Not only that, sharing your videos and photos on YouTube, Facebook, Picasa and TwitVid are a snap, not to mention being able to relive those magical moments on a HDTV thanks to the built-in HDMI output port. The BW20 even comes with a handy floating wrist strap so that it will not end up at the bottom of the pond or lake.
Toshiba is asking for a reasonable $129.99 for the Camileo BW20 camcorder as it makes its way to decent retail stores all round.
