We also checked the reviews for all camcorders (not just medium total megapixels video cameras) and found that Toshiba also has unexceptional reviews across its entire range.

Poor Product Quality

One Toshiba Camileo BW20 reviewer thought the product was not good quality. Ramon rated it 20 out of 100 and he mentioned four years ago “Bad quality and dreadful client service from Toshiba” in his Toshiba Camileo BW20 review.

Not Good in Terms of Size

One person thought it was not heavy and bulky. Ramon gave the Toshiba Camileo BW20 a rating of 20 out of 100 and he said “As soon as I opened the box I realized they have sent me a second-hand camera that has suffered more heavy use than mine” in his review of the Toshiba Camileo BW20.

Across all the medium total megapixels video cameras that were released more than two years ago the digital zooms range from 2x to 1,500x, and the average digital zoom is 140x.

Other 5x (digital) video cameras currently available which you might want to consider include the Philips CAM150PK/37[plb_1394755_price] which has better reviews.
