Not that long ago, I mentioned how proud and super excited I was … remember? I was selected as a “Toshiba Canada Brand Ambassador” via She’sConnected Brand Ambassador Program.
MY MISSION: to check out the Toshiba Tablet or a 3D HDTV at my nearest authorized retailer, and tell you about my experience in a blog post. For my convenience, I received a Toshiba Camileo Sportscam camcorder to take visual stills, record footage on my shopping trip, or record a vlog after my excursion (or a combination of the three). The Camileo Sportscam, valued at $139.99, and an 8GB SD card is mine to keep in appreciation of my efforts.
I received the yellow Camileo BW10 Sportscam!
Waterproof and weatherproof, you can snorkel up to 2 meters and shoot in Full HD, or climb your favorite peaks and capture the breathtaking view even in the rain. Wherever your adventure takes you, your CAMILEO BW10 will be there with you!
