Samsung SC-D372 review: Samsung SC-D372


Samsung SC-D372

This camcorder is very simple to shoot with in auto mode.

Poor video quality; minimalist buttons make menu navigation a pain.

Poor button layout and terrible movies make the Samsung SC-D372 camcorder a definite "pass."

Samsung SC-D372


Camera with poor separation. Unfortunately, Samsung (Samsung) D372 belongs to the latter category. Even in the low-priced miniDV camera, D372's body is also very lightweight. Fitted with batteries and tape, the weight of less than 15 ounces (about 425...
