Quick Camcorder Review: Samsung SC-DC164

Good manual control feature set, - Strong specs on paper, - Can be found for much less than MSRP on the street, - Mic input and lots of jacks

Please don't buy this Camcorder!!!!!

 

I don't think I have ever been more disappointed in a product in my entire life. The Samsung SC-DC64 camera was originally purchased in October 2006, a month before my first son was born. This was a present from "Grandma to be" that lives far away. ...
