Summary: The Samsung SCD103 meets the needs of a person starting to make videos or a family looking to record events and holidays. It records to a mini-cassette - an older but doable technology. It's small, easy to handle, and easy to operate.
Summary: I've owned a SCD 23 shortly after it came on the market. It's a great performing camera with features found only on the most expensive ones. (eg.external mic input). The picture quality is GREAT! Works GREAT in low light.
Used Two times, now my Samsung SCD-103 Mini DV is eating tapes
21 March 2011
Summary: Learn from my costly errors, just consider my point of view for a moment. If your thinging of buying a DV-Tape or DVD disc type of camcorder in the year 2011 or later, why? Want the heart ache us others endure, spending hundreds of dollars on a product who's warrenty will be long gone by the time...
Summary: Purchased this camera over 5 years ago. It has been used and abused by two adults, two children and three dogs. It has been dropped, kicked, left in the rain, left in vehicle overnight(s) in -20F weather and kept on ticking.
Summary: I Had one of these, and after a year or so the LCD display when black, FOREVER. They want $180 to repair it when the FLEA MARKET sells better ones for half the price. Oh and the image quality was a couple of decades behind, PIXELLATION BELONGS IN THE 80's!!!!
Summary: If you have the problem of not being able to record other than audio, (bad CCD chip) Samsung will repair or replace this camera for free. Call Samsung with your serial number and they will e-mail you a UPS shipping label and RMA number for UPS. This is the result of a class action suite settlement.
