Samsung SC-D363 MiniDV Digital Camcorder


i am itrested in ur camera

hello seller

Consumer review by: compusonai (

Good for initial digital CAM


(Edited January 01st by compusonai) But clearly, a model with similar features from any of those 4 makes are significantly more pricy.

Rather inexpensive - and that is by far its real strength. The overall quality is good, easy menu

No flash-light. Picture quality not as good as what you get from Sony, Panasonic, JVC and cannon with similar features.

A good entry level for the price


Got one on black friday.

The price is right. Easy to operate. Lots of features

Picture is not very good. battery does not last long. Can not do anything while charging. Little confused to find the clips on the tape.

Good Entery Level


Great for the price but I would not spend more than $200 on this Unit! I got one on black Friday for $130.

Price, Price, Price, Size, Ease of use and did I mention Price

Only really for entry level. Limited functions and growth!

Consumer review by: awadhiya (

Small in size and results


Small, compact miniDV will get you started very quick with the 'Quick Menu' and 'Easy-Q' features.

Easy to use, lightweight

Poor quality in ill-illumination
