Light and small. Easy to use.

Picture quality is not good. DVD discs capacity is only 20-30 minutes. Battery life could be longer.

Consumer review by: Dave (reevoo.com)

Samsung VP-DC172W

 

Instructions very easy to follow. Camera is easy to handle and the steady shot works well. It would be better if the steady shot was the default as I didn't realise when I first used the camera and ended up with a very shaky picture

Getting 8cm dual layer -RW dvds is very difficult. Prices are high and they are in relatively short supply. The battery can become loose without you realising it and as a result the dvd may require reformatting
