Samsung SC-D353 Digital Camcorder


Samsung has quite an impressive line of video cameras, everything from HI-8 to digital and from simple and inexpensive to feature packed with a price tag. Today we're taking a look at the SC-D353 digital camcorder. This camcorder comes with all the...

For the price, great camcorder.


Extremely light weight, affordable, easy to run. This is a great beginner camera.

Resolution is a bit grainy, especially on low light mode. No flash

Do not expect too much


I've needed a camcorder for a long time, but could never make the decision on which one to choose. If I had unlimited amount of money, of course that will not be a problem, but with my bargain budget the choice becomes more tricky. The thing is that I ...
