Samsung SC-D180 MiniDV Camcorder


I purchased this camcorder 8 months ago, 2 months ago I experienced snow flake effects when recording, I called Samsung to repair it they referred me to a local dealer the dealer was not able to fix it so I called Samsung again they asked me to ship it...

Works great when you first buy it.

After five months you will know.
