Samsung launches SC-DC164 DVD Camcorder

With the growing availability of hard-drive based camcorders, the price of those that use DVDs are starting to come down. That’s not to say that they are not a viable option, though, especially when you look at the new SC-DC164 from Samsung.

For all intents and purposes, if you’ve got yourself some writable DVDs, this camcorder will probably take it. If you’re using the single-layer variety, it’ll swallow up your DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, and DVD+RW, but if you’re rocking the dual-layer, you’ll have to stick to the +R variety.

The SC-DC164 comes with a 680k 1.1 megapixel CCD, a 260k-pixel 2.7-inch widescreen LCD, and a 4-in-1 multi-memory card slot. You’ll be able to do your 16:9 widescreen recording, and get in close on the action with 33X optical and 1200X digital zoom. PictBridge and USB 2.0 are also supported.

Look for the Samsung SC-DC164 to be available some time this month with a suggested price point of $449.99.
