Summary: The Camera is great,it took a lot of looking to find the disc size. It is also a lot of reading to use the camera. I will be just fine, once my grand child uses it and then shows me what to do. (O those grands)
Summary: Just like my old one that quit working properly, but the prior owner included, with this camcorder, items I did not get with my original new purchase of the old one. I have always liked the mini disc which goes from camcorder, after being finalized, directly to dvd player, and the ease of use.
Summary: I've been disappointed with this camera from the very beginning. I've recorded 4 mini dvd's of important events in my newborns life only to learn that one of the four was actually to be made into a REAL dvd that I could ACTUALLY watch in MY dvd player NOT in the camera. Samsung you let me down.
Summary: I purchased this product at the advice of a friend who also didnt own the product very long. To both of our surprise, we are having the same problems. The camcorder will record movies but will not finalize the disc.
Summary: Ive never owned a camcorder before I purchased this one so I was excited when I had bought it right before my baby shower in '07. I thought that I would be able to record my baby shower and the birth of my son with no problem. Back then I was a little upset over the price, $250 approx.
Summary: I'm going to make this short and sweet. This camera is OK. It works, and in good lighting can make a decent quality picture; however, more times than not, the pic quality is horrible, and the battery life wont last the length of a 20 min DVD. The record to a SD card is even worse.
Summary: My husband gave this camera to me for my 29th birthday, just in time to record my sons baptism, which we had done at our church when he was only 8 days old. The film is completely black - you can hear the baptism but can't see it.
