London, UK, 5th September 2013 – Toshiba UK today announces the new Camileo X-Sports sportscam with 5.08cm (2.0") embedded LCD display. Made for filming the most action-packed moments, it's perfect for a wide range of users – whether it's a person capturing their favourite concert, a family creating a holiday video to share, sports fans or adrenaline seekers.

Protection against water, snow and shocks

Without the waterproof casing, the Camileo X-Sports is shockproof from a drop of up to 1.5 metres so doesn't inhibit users who enjoy taking part in sports or activities where camera equipment can easily be knocked or dropped.

Hands-free remote control

With a remote control designed to be worn on the wrist, users can control the action without being hindered by the need to hold the camera or take their eyes off the piste, wave or cliff face. The remote control's LED interface shows the status of the Camileo X-Sports camcorder through a series of simple light combinations, and allows users to switch between photo and video modes in an instant. Waterproof up to 3 metres, shockproof up to 1.5 metres and with a battery life of 5 hours, this robust and convenient remote control is always on hand and ready for action.

With the flat clip and adhesive mounts, it can be stuck onto a helmet or surfboard for the best shot while snowboarding, cycling or riding the waves. Alternatively it can be screwed directly onto the back or side of a bike for fluid filming, using the bike mount. The Camileo X-Sports shockproof camcorder can also be used on the tripod mount without the waterproof casing, for added flexibility and professional-looking results. Optional mounting accessories are also available including a chest and head strap mount.

The Camileo X-Sports is Wi-Fi® enabled and when used with Toshiba's own 'Wi-Fi Connect' app it allows users to even operate the camcorder from their smartphone or tabletii.
