Expert review by:

Samsung VP-DC161W

 

Aimed at the novice end of the market, the VP-DC161W is designed to ensure users spend less time figuring out how to use it and more time filming. And Samsung has done a pretty good job.

The Samsung is a great entry-level DVD camcorder with a feature set to please undemanding users. Experts will be less impressed, though, and blank DVDs are currently neither cheap, spacious nor anywhere near as quick as Mini DV.

Fantastic pictures, excellent value for money and easy to use

The cost of the disc, it didn't come with any and they can be quite costly with most only enabling half an hour recording at a time
