Philips Camcorder

Van Maercke Michel, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: it's a fantastic little, handy camcorder, for all weather, under water, in the snow, easy to put in your pocket, easy to handle, verry good quality of image, it's my second one, the first one broke by my fault, I forgot to close it before diving in the sea... I'm glad I found another one.

Pretty decent for the price.

  • Summary: Just got this recently so I can't judge it really well yet. So far it seems to take pretty good indoor video. That was the main reason I bought it. The port for the USB cable is flat stupid! Instead of on one of the sides it's on the BOTTOM so you have to remove any attached tripod shoe to get to it. Time will tell how much I like it.

Great Camera except for the Battery life

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: This camera takes great pictures even in very low light, without using its weak flash. It's video is also very good. I have used it a few times underwater (just a few feet) and have gotten in muddy with no issues. The non removable battery is the only bad thing about it and it will not last a day on a typical vacation. So if you get it take along a portable USB charger.

Sad that this was a flop

Craig S., Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: my camera arrived new in the box as advertised. It looked great, we charged it as you'e supposed to but sadly the thing would power up then power right down again. I went online to try and resolve the issue, hit the little reset button a few times but the issue remained. Thankyou to Amazon for a good return policy as this was not cheap.

Philips Waterproof Digital Camera

JAG, Amazon
23 April 2013
  • Summary: After using this for swimming and misc shots, I will probably use my other camera instead. This is a low quality cam and relatively inexpensive. I wouldn't be devastated if I dropped it or water leaked somehow. Its almost all plastic. Pros: Extremely Lightweight, small enough to be portable, multi-purpose device (movies, camera, camcorder), good for kids that you don't want to trust with a $300+ camera. Cons: Low Quality Footage, Tiny Screen, Not many options.

Is an OK product, but we've had better cameras

Leanne, Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: I like point-and-shoot cameras that are easy to use, and this Philips one fits the bill pretty well in that regard. It's easy to use, has decent picture quality, and holds up to its waterproof claim. That being said, the quality of the images on this are not that sharp or clear; we've found that it takes grainy footage and the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired.

Well designed but needs a wider lens

Evan Jacobs, Amazon
13 June 2012
  • Summary: This camera is a pretty good version of a small, simple point and shoot in a resiliant housing. What really holds it back is the lens, which would benefit from a wider view. For a waterproof camera designed for use in "extreme" circumstances, I believe a wider lens is critical. This wouldn't be an effective helmet cam, for example. It's unfortunate, because the camera is otherwise well designed.

Decent Hardware, Lousy Software

N. Burlakoff, Amazon
2 June 2012
  • Summary: The camera itself seems quite reasonable considering the price. The feel and balance are excellent. The quality of video images are fine, although using the zoom does create noise. The zoom itself is slow,which is not a bad thing since most amateurs tend to zoom too fast, cut-away too often, and not pan on a tripod--all techniques that jar the viewer.

hand held video camcorder

Go Cougs, Amazon
30 May 2012
  • Summary: I haven't used it much but and i don't see my self using it much probably should of just gone with a slightly larger handheld camcorder, the one i have is shaped like an i phone, i wish i had gotten one that wraps around you fingers instead, don't know why just do.
