10 Reasons For for Choosing the Toshiba Camileo BW10

A Lot Bigger Optical Zoom

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has an optical zoom of 10x, however the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the HTC RE, the Polaroid ID1880 and the Vivitar DVR936 are all only 1x optical zoom camcorders (9x smaller). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

42% Bigger Digital Zoom

Toshiba Camileo BW10 is 10x (digital). That's 6x bigger than the Polaroid ID1880 (4x) and 7x bigger than the Vivitar DVR936 (3x). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

Image Stabilizer

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has an image stabilizer, and so do the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Polaroid ID1880 and the Vivitar DVR936, but the HTC RE does not. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

Full HD

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is Full HD, and so are the HTC RE, the Polaroid ID1880 and the Vivitar DVR936, but the Cisco Flip UltraHD is not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 64GB maximum memory card size camcorder. That's 56GB larger than the HTC RE (8GB). More ...

Using memory cards in addition to the camcorder's internal storage increases the time the camcorder can record video.

Using a larger memory card allows the user to record video for longer and at higher resolution.

Face Detection

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a face detection, however the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the HTC RE, the Polaroid ID1880 and the Vivitar DVR936 do not. More ...

'Face Detection' indicates whether the camcorder has the ability to detect faces while recording, allowing it to automatically make sure they remain in full focus.

Face detection makes it far easier to make sure that people always appear in full focus, meaning no messed up videos due to bad focus.

Built-in Flash

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a built-in flash, and so does the Polaroid ID1880, however the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the HTC RE and the Vivitar DVR936 do not. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

Built-in Microphone

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a built-in microphone, but the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the HTC RE, the Polaroid ID1880 and the Vivitar DVR936 do not have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

HDMI

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 supports HDMI, and so do the Cisco Flip UltraHD and the Polaroid ID1880, however the HTC RE and the Vivitar DVR936 do not. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!

Better Brand

Toshiba camcorders have an average rating of 52.4%, whereas Cisco only has an average rating of 42.8%, HTC only has an average rating of 40.7%, Polaroid only has an average rating of 52.2% and Vivitar only has an average rating of 51.6%.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Toshiba Camileo BW10

Heavier

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 98.5g camcorder. That's 151.5g lighter than the Cisco Flip UltraHD (250g), 32g heavier than the HTC RE (66.5g), 8.5g heavier than the Polaroid ID1880 (90g) and 48.5g heavier than the Vivitar DVR936 (50g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

13MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a total megapixels of 5MP, whereas the Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 1.6MP camcorder (3.4MP smaller), the HTC RE is a 16MP camcorder (11MP bigger), the Polaroid ID1880 is an 18MP camcorder (13MP bigger) and the Vivitar DVR936 is an 8MP camcorder (3MP bigger). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the HTC RE and the Polaroid ID1880), but the Vivitar DVR936 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

50% Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 30fps camcorder. That's 30fps slower than the Cisco Flip UltraHD (60fps). More ...

'Maximum Frame Rate' denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

A Lot Smaller Display Diagonal

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a display diagonal of 2", however the Polaroid ID1880 is a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.7" larger). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

Shorter Maximum Battery Life

Toshiba Camileo BW10 is only 1.16h battery life. That's 0.16h longer than the HTC RE, the Polaroid ID1880 and the Vivitar DVR936 (1h). More ...

'Maximum Battery Life' indicates how long the camcorder is capable of recording video for, measured in hours.

A longer battery life allows you to record video for longer before recharging the camcorder or changing the battery.

0.84h Shorter Video Recording Time

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a video recording time of 1.16h, whereas the Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 2h video recording time camcorder (0.84h longer). More ...

'Video Recording Time' is how long the camcorder can record uninterrupted footage before the battery needs charging or changing.

A longer video recording time means that you can record more video in a single session, and need to recharge the battery less.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has only received a Kagoo Score of 72, however the Cisco Flip UltraHD scored 74, the HTC RE scored 81, the Polaroid ID1880 scored 75 and the Vivitar DVR936 scored 82.

Fewer Awards

The Toshiba Camileo BW10's average expert rating is only 70%, however the Cisco Flip UltraHD's is 74% (based on 58 reviews) and the HTC RE's is 71% (based on 142 reviews).

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Cisco Flip UltraHD

Image Stabilizer

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has an image stabilizer (as do the Polaroid ID1880, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 and the Vivitar DVR936), whereas the HTC RE does not have this feature. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

A Lot Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has a maximum frame rate of 60fps, however the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is only a 30fps camcorder (30fps slower). More ...

'Maximum Frame Rate' denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

HDMI

The Cisco Flip UltraHD supports HDMI (as do the Polaroid ID1880 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10), but the HTC RE and the Vivitar DVR936 do not support this feature. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!

30% Longer Video Recording Time

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 2h video recording time camcorder. That's 0.84h longer than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (1.16h). More ...

'Video Recording Time' is how long the camcorder can record uninterrupted footage before the battery needs charging or changing.

A longer video recording time means that you can record more video in a single session, and need to recharge the battery less.

Four More Awards

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has received 4 awards from expert review sites, however the HTC RE has received 1 award, the Polaroid ID1880 has received no awards, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 has received 1 award and the Vivitar DVR936 has received no awards.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Cisco Flip UltraHD

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 1x optical zoom camcorder, and so do the HTC RE, the Polaroid ID1880 and the Vivitar DVR936. That's 9x smaller than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (10x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

200g Heavier

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has a weight of 250g, but the HTC RE is a 66.5g camcorder (183.5g lighter), the Polaroid ID1880 is a 90g camcorder (160g lighter), the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 98.5g camcorder (151.5g lighter) and the Vivitar DVR936 is a 50g camcorder (200g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

92% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 1.6MP camcorder. That's 14.4MP smaller than the HTC RE (16MP), 16.4MP smaller than the Polaroid ID1880 (18MP), 3.4MP smaller than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (5MP) and 6.4MP smaller than the Vivitar DVR936 (8MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has a max video resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD Ready) pixels pixels, which is half as high maximum video resolution as the HTC RE, the Polaroid ID1880 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels) and 9 times lower maximum video resolution as the Vivitar DVR936 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

Not Full HD

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is not Full HD, however the HTC RE, the Polaroid ID1880, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 and the Vivitar DVR936 are. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Cisco Flip UltraHD does not have a built-in flash, whereas the HTC RE, the Polaroid ID1880, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 and the Vivitar DVR936 do. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has received a Kagoo Score of 74, but the HTC RE scored 81, the Polaroid ID1880 scored 75 and the Vivitar DVR936 scored 82.

Not Currently Available

We couldn't find any retailers that are currently selling the product. More ...

You can sign up to a price alert to be notified when this product becomes available.
