Don't repent buying this product.

this is a piece of crap.

Consumer review by:

Excellent value sub-$200 Digital Camera

 

For the bargain price, this is an excellent camera that you won't freak out over if something happens to it. It takes excellent digital video, weighs amost nothing and is small enough to take anywhere and slips into a jacket pocket. Therefore its there...

Price, covers all the basics, USB interface to PC

No issues for what I paid

OKAY Camera, I do not recommend it!

 

The focus is really bad especially in the dark. The "Color Nite" feature sucks. You can't use too many features at the same time. For example, you can't use the "Easy Q" at the same time as the "Color Nite". You pretty much can't use any other feature...

Easy to use

Bad focus, no manual focus

Samsung SC-D363 MiniDV Digital Camcorder

 

i am itrested in ur camera

hello seller

Consumer review by:

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.

Consumer review by:

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.

(Edited January 01st by aussies) This is my first camcorder and I must say I am happy with the samsung SC-D363.

Compacted, good first camcorder

Can't seem to shoot in the dark (night) they don't supply the DV cable

Consumer review by:

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!
