The Samsung SC-D382 Mini DV Camcorder features a 680k pixel CCD image sensor for recording all your adventures in life. Whether you're at a child's sporting event or on a family vacation this camera will capture the moment with ease. The 34x optical zoom and Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) allows you to capture clean, clear video from far off or in crowded situations where you're likely to experience hand shake. The 2.7" color TFT LCD display provides a platform for composing your shots and a place to watch video upon playback. When you're ready to take a little more control of your movie making, just switch over to manual focus, exposure, white balance or shutter speed. And, because of it's compact size, take the SC-D382 anywhere you go; just drop it in a bag and forget about it until it's time to record!
