Samsung VP-D363


not many really - relatively easy to use thats about all.

dredaful microphone - constant whining noise from the drum is picked up on all recordings - especially quiet surroundings. Support from Samsung is absolutley dire. they say they will ring back and do not - you ae passed from pillar to post and get no...

not a good buy at al - the old VHS was far superior- waiting for samsung to ring back - want a refund but chances of that are small.

Really Good Camcorder


It's very light weight, good quality easy to use product. The zoom is very powerful. It also has many connections and comes with a wire to connect it to TVs and the like. The screen is quite big and fairly high res to give you a good idea of what...

The microphone is low quality but at the price what can you expect. Most of the visual effects avaiable you'd never want to use, but that doesn't matter because it's better to leave effects for later to be done while editing on your computer.

A very good camcorder for the price, It competes well with the much higher priced Sony camcorders, if you're looking for a good deal, buy it. It is also much better than the Canon alternatives for the same price.
