Toshiba’s Waterproof, Shockproof Full HD Camileo BW20 Camcorder


Irvine, CA—Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD) announced the latest addition to its Camileo digital camcorder line—the Camileo BW20 HD waterproof camcorder, which is effective 16 feet under water, resistant to dust and shockproof enough to withstand accidental drops of five feet, and it produces Full HD 1080p videos.

“We experienced a great deal of success with our first waterproof camcorder, the Camileo BW10, and found that consumers are eager for Toshiba to bring an even more durable and feature-rich offering to the market,” said Paul Collas, director, Marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Digital Life Products and Services. “We’ve improved from our first waterproof model and made a camcorder that is more ruggedized to withstand a stronger level of natural elements to help customers capture those not-to-be-forgotten moments and more easily share them with friends and family.”

The compact and lightweight Camileo BW20 is versatile enough to go where no smartphone dares to go, added Collas. It features an f/2.2 aperture lens, a 5 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and video image stabilization to allow users to capture clear video even underwater. The camcorder also permits users to share videos and images on YouTube, Facebook, Picasa and TwitVid with the Camileo Uploader software or directly onto an HDTV via an HDMI output port.

Toshiba’s Camileo BW20, which comes with a floating wrist strap, retails for $129.99.
