Summary: I purchased this BW 10 off Amazon to take videos and still shots of my son's wedding in September. Near the end of the wedding weekend the screen was black when I tried to take more videos. I thought maybe it was the battery, but after charging it I had the same issue. I missed pictures and video of the last day of the weekend festivities. I am not very happy with the camera at this point.
Summary: I had such high hopes for this. Bought it for the specific purpose of taking it into the ocean to go surfing. EVERY time I take it into the ocean within seconds the lens steams up and it's unusable. Complete waste of money I'm afraid.
Summary: I ordered this camera for my 11 year old who would like to start making youtube type short films. Unfortunately the camera arrived DOA . We were unable to charge or get any response from the device. Fortunately we were able to return it to Amazon for full credit. Buyer beware.
Summary: worked fine the first day and started leaking water and got foggy trough the lens next day. I had to wait a few hours for the camera to dry and it work out of the water fine, untill I got back in the water again. It never worked in the water at all. Send it back to Amazon.com for full refund. My vacation in Dominican Rep. was spoiled.
Summary: It does not come with a wall charger, you have to use a USB port on your computer. I tried it on two different computers' USB ports, even replaced the BW10 and tried it with the second BW10 - still no luck. Do NOT buy.
Summary: I couldn't get the video from my camcorder to my computer. The only way I could access the video was to upload it to YouTube and that took several hours (with a fast connection) for only a 7-minute video. I called Toshiba Customer Support (had a hard time finding the number on their web site). The tech couldn't figure it out either. We tried on both my desktop and laptop. One has Windows XP and the other Vista. Worked on neither.
Summary: I have the same proble with this that many other buyer have, just check out the Toshiba website and click under "reviews"... the unit takes brillant video when it works, which is not often. The unit will turn itself off after only 10 minutes and then not turn on again until it is connected to a computer or a charger, which is not included in the purchase price.
