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.
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: 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.
Summary: The buttons are in weird places, the controls are hard to get to, the control to turn the camera on is hard for anyone with nails to use, the look through lens always shows white no matter how you try to get it to work so you always need to use the digital viewfinder, the tape recording is grainy,...
Summary: My camera also quit working just outside of the warranty period. I am not able to play back ANYTHING other than a blue screen with the date via USB, component cables, nor the lcd screen. I use this thing a couple of times every few months, and then, only for a few minutes. I am disappointed.
