"Samsung is proud to offer consumers the broadest format compatibility and choices in a DVD camcorder," said Aaron Novak, Marketing Manager for Camcorders, Samsung Electronics America. "Today's consumers don't have time to worry about which DVDs will function with their camcorders so Samsung has eliminated that concern. Our 2006 DVD camcorders epitomize Samsung's response to customer needs with the best available DVD format compatibility, superior memory card compatibility and the shortest power-on time."

The SC-D564 features a 2.7" wide LCD, and comes with a strobe and remote. The SC-D563 features a 2.5" LCD.

The SC-DC164 and SC-DC165 DVD Camcorders offer Samsung's industry leading DVD format compatibility, convenient 4-in-1 multi-memory card slots and a compact design.
