Summary: Bought this as a supplement to my Mini-DV camcorder and my digital camera. Although I'm not complaining lugging separate camera and camcorders, the Samsung SC-D6550 seems to be an instant solution if you want to carry less. I was fairly impressed with this camcorder.
Summary: I bought this camers a little while back. I have used it maybe three time .. the 1st 2 times i was able to record and playback and do all the functions the camera was meant for. The 3rd time i used it I was away in Hawaii and got some great footage of me and my family on a cruise....
Summary: I originally purchased the Samsung DUOCAM SCD6040. It fortunately broke 1 week before the warranty ran out. The video began having giant pixilated squares when video taping and on playback. Though under warranty, it still cost me $49 (their fee) to send in the camera for a repair.
Summary: I thought I was upgrading from analog to digital but after seeing the videos I shot indoors I liked the analog better. Very poor and grainy. Also the focus is terrible! While filming 3 people in a row moving from one to the other the focus would blur then refocus.
Summary: I have many pet peaves about this camera. a) the video showed untrue colors and came out rather dark----don't try to record indoors b) didn't fit into my hand naturally and had to use two hands to navigate the menu and even the record button.
Summary: I like the price and the concept of two lenses. The video quality is horrible indoor. Also the auto focus is so slow that I have to use the manual focus mode to avoid the problem. I recommend Sony.
Summary: I have tried many different camcorders/digital cameras before landing onto this one from Samsung. Both camera and camcorder let me make excellent quality pictures and movies of my own. Sounds are also real and great without any noticeable mechanical noise.
Summary: Anyone who says this isnt a great piece of equipment is talking complete rubbish! For the price and size it's excellent. Good quality stills and camcorder for when needed. Yes, if you want a very small and very high quality camera - then simple, buy a camera!
Summary: I would recommend this to anyone looking for a way to take video and pictures without the hassle of lugging around (and charging) two separate gadgets. It takes excellent pictures, just as good if not better than any other digital camera I have seen.
