Samsung DuoCam SC-D6550 review:

 

Decent video performance; relatively lightweight and compact.

Noisy video; weak flash; poorly integrated design; slow still-camera performance; lacks the infrared Night mode of its predecessor.

Novelty in electronics is a dangerous thing. Occasionally, as in the case of the JVC GR-X5, the gambit pays off and we are privy to a great product. More often, the public is saddled with burdens like the Samsung SC-D6550 – a wolf in dork's clothing. I...

Samsung SC-D6550 Camcorder Review

Samsung Duo Cam SC-D6550

 

The Samsung Duo Cam is one of those fantastic 2-in-1 deals that offer the best of both worlds in one package. This combo device offers a 900x variable digital zoom miniDV camcorder plus a 3x optical zoom digital camera supporting a 5.25 megapixel CCD...

Should recall "defect" instead of making buyers wait so long to get it fixed.

Duocam a good idea with a lot of pixels

Tape got stuck. Was told pin was "defective" Have to wait 2 weeks for any authorized dealer to even look at it
