Summary: When I first inspected my Mitsuba DV305, I was surprised by the external quality and how complete the camera package was: owners manual, CD, battery charger, cables, camera bag and something called a "Power Box". The Power Box is a temporary battery, it holds two AA batteries, this is to be used when you recharge the battery. The engineering and design are remarkable, that includes many "Bells & Whistles" that are included in much higher priced cameras.
Okay as a camera, useless for video. Not worth the money.

Summary: I bought this Camcorder for short home video filming. For snapshots, it's decent. As a camcorder, it's useless. It cannot use HC (high capacity) SD memory cards, limiting it to a maximum of a 2Gb SD card and thus rendering it virtually useless for video filming. You'll spend more money finding compatible memory cards and easily double your cost in using this camera.
Summary: THIS UNIT CAME WITH NO OWNERS MANUAL, NO SERVICE CONTACT, AND A COMPANY THAT DOES NOT RESPOND TO ANY EMAILS. SEEMS TO WORK FINE BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DELETE INFO,AND IT KEEPS TELLING ME CARD IS FULL EVEN WITH A BRAND NEW CARD. WOULD NOT RECCOMEND!!!!
Summary: This camera captures video that is too dark to be used. It can not record useful video. period. How a company could sell something that doesn't work for its intended purpose is really beyond me. Avoid this camera.
