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.

Decent After Some Initial Disappointment

Matt Morgan, Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: Philips is a household name when it comes to electronics and this was my first opportunity to play with their camcorder/camera line. This camera was initially very disappointing but after giving it a second chance I have come to appreciate it more. I am completely revising this review.

Cute

Simon Cleveland, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: Cute camera, neat video, and a recommended product for anyone wanting a simple and fun way to categorize their adventures. It's a nice size to hold and stuff in a pocket while traveling.

disappointing, will update as use more

B. Capossere, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: I have to say, I was excited to get this thanks to the zoom for the video, but I was sorely disappointed in its quality. The indoor video I took of my son's music concert, in admittedly relatively low-light (but nowhere near dark) was nearly unwatchable.

Rugged, Waterproof, but Not Perfect (4- stars)

Debbie Lee Wesselmann, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: This Philips waterproof pocket camcorder works well as video camera underwater, at the beach, in snow, and in rain -- anything that the elements will throw at it -- but as a standalone, everyday camera, you can probably do better.

A contender in the palm-sized rugged HD camera battle.

EMTP EJ, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: It's rugged, you can take it pretty much anywhere you can go without special protective gear. It's got anti-shake built-in, so that really help make your videos look professional.

Missing some features and lacking in others

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: I am a big fan of this type of waterproof video camera that also takes pictures. I ove the ability to be at the pool (in the pool) or at the beach and not have to worry about the camra getting wet and the ability to get shots that you otherwise would not.

fairly weak, all things considered

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: Pros: * Easy to use * Works just fine in the snow * Works fairly well underwater, but be aware that dim light levels will make many pictures a bit grainy * Drop-proof (it was sent inside a larger box with only 1 of those plastic "pillow" things when 6 would have fit, so presumably it was thumped...

Good for Rugged Outdoors, Poor Indoors, Zoom, & Panning

Tiger, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: The camcorder is rugged, waterproof, drop resistant, rugged lens that requires no cap, only a cloth bag needed (included), and sports very good usability features like navigation, dual recording formats (optional), MP4 video format, and 3 second pre & post record (optional).

A good camcorder for beginners or casual use

korova, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: My review perspective *I'm new to shooting video and to video cameras. I've been a still-photo hobbyist using both film and digital cameras for many years. *I picked up the CAM150RD to use as a simple and informal camcorder.
