this is D..

A is wrong cause the length of which.is just too wordy and it at the end is ambigous..

D makes perfect use of which as a non essential pronoun, refering to the camcoder..

in gmat <subject>, which is usually the correct format.

I choose [D] as well...

My explanation...

A. to be the world’s smallest network digital camcorder, the length of which is that of a handheld computer, and it weighs [3 subject/predicates is typically a run-on]
B. to be the smallest network digital camcorder in the world, which is as long as a handheld computer, weighing ["smallest...weighing" doesn't match because it is comparing size/mass... should be "lightest...weighing" or "smallest...measuring" if you wanted to go this route]
C. is the smallest network digital camcorder in the world, which is as long as a handheld computer, and it weighs [completely awkward... run-on]
D. is the world’s smallest network digital camcorder, which is as long as a handheld computer and weighs [turns it into a double subject/predicate that flows smoothly statement/description]
E. is the world’s smallest network digital camcorder, the length of which is that of a handheld computer, weighing [same reasoning as [B] above]

Hope I didn't babble too much in the explanations and hope this helps!

Rather confident, but OA to make sure?

B
i think, we need "claims to be"
B is more concise than A.

D is the only one with no pronoun and modifier issues.

B has a which with an incorrect "which" antecedent (i.e. "which" refers to the world and not to the camera). I dont think B can be the OA. What is the source of this question ? Although claims to be is idiomatically better than "claims is". I dont like this question at all

In fact this question got me so intrigued that I did a bit of lookup, and found this thread where the OA is D :

Tks Bsd! But in B "which" refers to the camcorder, since "in the world" is a prepositional phrase acts as middle man
