Samsung VP-D371W: is this cam punching above it's weight


i bought this cam off ebay for around £100, well worth it for the money. this cam records onto miniDV tape which are still the best medium as HDD and flash based ones often have grainy and horrid picture quality. this cam does not pose itself as some...

great sound capture, anti glare screen, dv format, quality finish

poor low light quality, lack of expantion
