Summary: I bought this camera in 1996. Since then, I used just a little, because it's simply not reliable. In fact, I prefer to make small records using my digital photo cameras on the record mode, since it's much more reliable. Almost 50% of the discs I tried to record simply don't finalize.
Summary: I used this camera successfully for one week and one day, upon which time it suddenly stopped being able to read any disc. After several hours of troubleshooting myself and engaging level 2 technical support, it was deemed in need of repair and now I must send it off to NJ.
Summary: I can't believe a company is allowed to sell such a piece of junk. Samsung should face a lawsuit for misleading buyers. This product does not fulfill the "implied warranty of merchantability". I'd rate this product zero if it was an option. I've only been able to use DVD-Rs.
Summary: The Samsung DC 164 is an easy-to-use, small camcorder for non-professional purposes. BUT the faults of this product simply outweigh any logic to purchase it; 1. Battery Life is an absolute joke- there is no way you'll even get close to 30 minutes worth on a full charge. 2.
Summary: This is a terriable camara - do not buy. When i first started to play with this camara i popped in a 1GB SD card and recorded on to it. I thought cool feature. When it came time to record some family moments i popped in DVD-R and started to shot away.
