I'd like to thank Eileen of Samsung Canada for providing us with the SCD 105 Digital Camcorder for review.
If you're in the market to buy a video camcorder there's a lot to choose from. Today we take a look at Samsungs SCD-105 Mini DV Camcorder that loaded with features and can double as a 3 megapixel camera.
The SCD-105 comes equipped with a staggering amount of stuff. You get a user manual, 2 software CD's, battery pack, power adapter/battery charger, remote, USB cord, Composite video cord, 8 meg sony memory stick, shoulder strap, and camera bag.
The SCD-105 is a sleek looking camcorder that's fairly light and compact. The battery included is a 7.4v 1100mAh Lithium Ion battery pack which will give you about 1.5 hours when using the LCD screen and a total of about 2 hours when only using the eyepiece.
It uses mini DV tapes for recording and you can buy either 60 minute or 90 minute cassettes.
As for features the unit has plenty including:
- 18 X optical/Digital 900 X zoom lens.
- 2.5 " LCD Monitor
- 4 in 1 Memory card slot (MS/MS Pro/SD/MMC)
- multi language display
