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. I will never buy any DVD-based camera anymore.
Cons: Samsung should be ashamed to make such a product that is so impaired, is so expensive and it is so poorly designed. This camcorder has serious problems with focus, the DVD does not work properly, it cannot read what it burns.
