Samsung SC-DC173 DVD Digital Camcorder Review
6 September 2007
Conclusion: Overall the Samsung SC-DC173 DVD camcorder is a decent no-frills product. It does what it needs to do without doing it in much fashion. Unfortunately, after using this camcorder and witnessing the results, I cannot recommend this camera to anyone looking for a basic model. If I myself were on the market, I would skip this model and continue searching for another.
Pros: Light, LCD is 2.7” and looks good, Small package, Audio is Dolby Digital and sounds nice, EasyQ makes your filming better
Cons: Lack of dynamic range, Video quality is lacking, Camcorder didn’t respond after a recording, Zoom dial can get stuck

Excerpt: I like the picture quality of all Samsung products. The Samsung SC-DC173 is no exception. The SC-DC173 records directly to DVD R DL discs. The LCD monitor is 2.7-inches of great clarity and color. I can hook the videos up directly to my PC and TV. The PictBridge connection is familiar and reliable. I can use a SD card for additional memory. The cost was low because I shopped around. I got it for less than $200.
Excerpt: Samsung has just released their newest light weight camcorder the SC-DC173. The SC-DC173 DVD Camcorder is one the first new camcorders from Samsung to use a Schneider Lens. Combining this lens with Samsungs leadership in digital technologies, gives consumers the performance of German optics while providing a premium product at a reasonable price.
Pros: Portability, Easy to Use, Still pictures, Direct to digital
