Samsung SC-DC173 DVD Digital Camcorder Review

ModSynergy
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

When It Is Good-Very Good, But: Samsung SC-DC173 Digital Camcorder

Personal Electronics buzz
24 July 2007
  • 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.
