Samsung SC-D453 review: Samsung SC-D453

 

Inexpensive; compact and stylish; solid battery life.

Very poor low-light video quality and stills; viewfinder works only with the LCD closed.

The Samsung SC-D453 is a compact bargain if you're shooting primarily outdoors, but its indoor performance is extremely poor.

Great Camera

 

very small size, lightweight, bright LCD screen, still pics, good zoom, lots of features, fairly good battery life, battery recharges quickly, good brand

focusing problems sometimes on auto but focuses better when put in sports mode and there is also a manual focus, the lens cap doesnt ever feel like it is in very good but it has never fallen out

Samsung SCD-453 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

 

A tape was stuck, would not come out. I solved the problem with tapping it gently. Now, I can not play back. It is bad that Samsung gives only 1 year parts and 90 days labour warranty.

very light weight and size, easy to operate

Very weak mechanism. Picture quality is not good

Small, portable, simple interface, good performance

Slow focusing, lower quality low-light capture
