Great Camera

 

very small size, lightweight, bright LCD screen, still pics, good zoom, lots of features, fairly good battery life, battery recharges quickly, good brand

focusing problems sometimes on auto but focuses better when put in sports mode and there is also a manual focus, the lens cap doesnt ever feel like it is in very good but it has never fallen out

Samsung SCD-453 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

 

A tape was stuck, would not come out. I solved the problem with tapping it gently. Now, I can not play back. It is bad that Samsung gives only 1 year parts and 90 days labour warranty.

A nice camcorder!

 

I am very pleased with this camcorder because of its low price and its simplicity of use.I strongly recommend to someone who is just beginner of this camcorder.And you should get your own case if you want to keep the camcorder longer.
