Toshiba Camileo BW10 all-action HD camcorder

If you're the sort of person whose idea of a perfect holiday is 2 weeks lazing by the pool at an all-inclusive 4-star in Benidorm then the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is probably not the camcorder for you.

If, however, you enjoy an action-packed getaway, involving skiing, snowboarding, snorkelling, sand dune racing, climbing, sailing or any other activity that ends in 'ing' and involves strenuous activity, then the Camileo BW10 could be right up your street.

Waterproof down to 2 metres, the BW10 is also dust proof, snow proof, sand proof and shock proof as a result of its exterior rubber casing. The camera's also pretty compact, measuring just 107 x 55 x 22mm and weighing in at 114g, so you can stick it in your pocket and always have it handy.

It shoots full 1080p at 30fps and can also take still images, with the help of the image stabilisation, via a 5-megapixel snapper. There's a 10x digital zoom for stills and video and there's also face recognition technology on board.

You can view your action via the 2-inch screen and even upload directly to YouTube should you pull of any gnarly moves that you want to show off. Yeah, gnarly, that's right.

The SD slot can take a card of up to 64GB, which would probably cost you at least double what you'll be paying for the actual camera which is going to be on sale at the end of next month for £129.99. Colour wise you've got a choice of yellow, turquoise or silver.
