Product description

Samsung seems to rule the camcorder kingdom by combining a fine MiniDV video digital camcorder with a 5 megapixel still camera into one compact device. This is certainly a must-have device for any family to use at home or on trips away from home. Still images reach a maximum resolution of 2592x1944 for making great prints or Internet image files. While videos are stored on popular MiniDV tapes, stills may be stored on your choice of memory card (it accepts MemoryStick - MemoryStick Pro - SD SecureDigital formats). There's also a USB port to facilitate still image transfer and an IEEE1394 Firewire port for rapid video transfer to your home computer (Windows or Macintosh). An 8-step camera function key (shutter, iris, manual, auto, night scene, custom set, MPEG rec., play, etc.) gives you several options for adjusting the camera's abilities. It's a powerful imaging tool that's remarkably easy to use and own. When weighing the choice of getting a camcorder or a digital-camera for you and your family, Samsung SC-D6550 means you don't have to make any compromises to have both in one compact unit. Digital Image Stabilization Easy-Q Button; EX Dial Navigator Minimum Visible Illuminations - 3 Lux (Video); 10 Lux (DigitalStill) Full Featured Manual Control Remote Control Included Multi-Card Slot (Multimedia, Secure Digital, Memory Stick Cards) Built-In Auto Flash for stills PictBridge Compatible - Make prints without necessarily using a computer MPEG-4 Videoclip (QVGA/30fps) USB Streaming (v2.0 for DSC) Color Viewfinder Built-in microphone + External MIC Connection for adding an optional microphone Shutter Speed - 1/60-1/10,000 (Video), 15-1/2,000 (Digital Still) Unit Dimensions - 2.38 W x 3.03 H x 4.92 D / Weight - About 1 pound Dual Volt Capable; USA plug provided


Bring together the best of both worlds with the Samsung SCD6550 DuoCam, which combines a 5-megapixel digital still camera with a MiniDV digital video camcorder (680,000-pixel CCD). This palm-sized camera uses two separate lens systems to record still photos and video and weighs just under 1 pound. It also features a built-in flash, both USB 2.0 and Firewire (IEEE-1394) connectivity, and a multi-format memory card slot that supports Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, and SD/MMC cards.

The video camcorder portion of the SCD6550 DuoCam has a 10x optical zoom lens and 900x variable speed digital zoom, which is activated by automatic sensing of the amount of pressure applied to the zoom tab. Digital image stabilization minimizes video shake and vibration distortion. The Easy-Q feature helps you make easy shots under any condition. Other features include:

  • Special video effects include art, mosaic, sepia, negative, mirror, black-and-white, emboss 1, emboss 2, pastel 1, pastel 2 and 16:9 wide mode; fade in/out for creative transitions
  • Video white balance modes include auto, hold, indoor, and outdoor
  • Programmed video auto exposure modes include auto, sports, portrait, spotlight, sand/snow, color nite, and high-speed shutter mode; manual focus
The digital still camera lens has a 3x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom (for 36x total). It captures the following resolutions: 2592 x 1944, 2272 x 1704, 2048 x 1536, 1600 x 1200 x 1024 x 768, and 640 x 480. It can also record an MPEG-4 digital video clips--perfect for uploading to the Internet or sending via email. Video can be stored directly to your Memory Stick or transferred to your PC via USB. Other features include:
  • Photo shooting modes include scene, program, aperture priority, shutter speed priority, manual, movie, and continuous shooting mode; multi and spot metering

  • Photo white balance modes include auto, glow lamp, halogen, fluorescent, cloudy, sunny, and manual to achieve natural tones under different lighting conditions
  • Special photo effects include black-and-white, sepia, and negative for creative images
It features both USB 2.0 and Firewire (IEEE 1394) in/out terminals for fast, simple transfers to your PC for viewing or editing, or to an IEEE 1394-compatible DVD recorder. It also offers a USB streaming capability that allows the camcorder to function as a Web cam and S-Video and AV connections out. It's compatible with direct printing to any PictBridge-enabled printer, enabling you to bypass a PC when you want to print photos.
