My son likes it but ......

Robert W. Newton "lektrikpuke", Amazon
25 December 2005
  • Summary: In another review it said you need good lighting. This is very true. If you turn it up to high resolution, you need all the more light. I misread the ad and thought the camera maintained 30 fps at all resolutions. I WAS WRONG!!! My son likes the camera, so I'm not going to complain. If it was for me, though, I'd send it back in a heartbeat, just because of the misleading ad. The sound quality (when files are moved to the computer) is pretty good.

Don't buy it

Mark Twain "Mark", Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is not worth looking into. I took it on a trip to Alaska and feel like i need to go back in order to get my memories back. the picture quality is horrible if the sun is not blaring. Don't even bother taking pics in low lighting. They come out blurry and grainy and the video cam feature is the same. Everything came out blurry and choppy and who makes a digital cam without a built in flash?! Waste of money. We bought it when it first came out and it was $300.

GRRRR

C. Sheets "CSHeets", Amazon

  • Summary: I am very frustrated with this... You need to have super great lighting to get anything worth while out of this thing. Everything would be great.... But make sure to have major lighting. Its very finiky in that way. Other wise the pics are great (with proper lighting) as well as the video. Works great as a webcam how ever doesnt zoom while in webcam mode.

Adorable but worth it?

Judo Mom "Judo Mom", Amazon

  • Summary: I have to say that this model is just the cutest thing ever! It sounded like it had a lot of versitle features for such a small piece of equipment. I bought this item thinking it would be good for video taping my kids athletic tournaments (indoors sports), but soon discovered that the quality - similar to a camera phone - was just not up to the task I needed it to do.

Mustek DV4000 MPEG4

Michael, Amazon
4 March 2004
  • Summary: As amazing that the value of this digital camcorder perceives to be it lacks greatly on its ability to provide quality movie pictures. It offers a lot of bells and whistles for features but the output quality of both still and movie films is unacceptable. It is very convenient to use but again the picture quality is not even close to other 4.0 megapixel cameras. The movie pictures move with the grace of pictures you've seen shot from another planet, i.e.

A fair price, maybe, but it's not enough

Marcelo A. "marceloaguiar", Amazon

  • Summary: I must say I understand every review here. The good things about this camcorder are: its size; its looks -- yes, it does look great, no cheap plastics, in my opinion. It does NOT feel cheap right out of the box, I would rather say the reverse; the nice zoom function; amazingly excelent recorded sound quality; nice MP3 playback function; rechargable Li-ion battery; nice tripod included...

  • Excerpt: "Upon seeing this product on www.ebuyer.co.uk I was amazed by it's range of features and superb value for money. I had already been looking at mp3 players and digital camcorders but this all in one device seemed perfect to me. I immediately ordered this along with a 512MB SD Card. Upon recieving the order I unpackaged everything and was initially pleased as the device was good looking and just as small as I expected. It came with a mini tripod and ...
  • Pros: Very Cheap multifunction device

Un appareil bas de gamme

danysystem, Ciao
4 January 2009
  • Summary: J'ai eu ce produit lors de mon abonnement au nouvel observateur. Il est vraiment inutile, moche, lourd, prise en main lamentable, pas de flash ! Personnellement il a buggué dès la deuxième fois que je l'ai utilisé : l'écran ne répondait plus et restait figé ... pas terrible, j'étais obligé de retirer les piles pour que ça remarche ! Les piles lr6 qui se déchargent très lentement pour moi. Les videos sont saccadées et ne présentent aucun teint : elles sont mornes.
  • Pros: le prix
  • Cons: moche, lourd, prise en main lamentable, pas de flash,

Mi è andata male..

stenuo, Ciao
12 March 2007
  • Summary: A volte capita che vedendo un articolo in negozio, si viene conquistati da qualche sua caratteristica specifica senza avere un idea generale del prodotto. Così mi è capitato acquistando questa Mustek DV 4000. Partiamo subito con i difetti più evidenti: 1)Anche selezionando l'opzione massima risoluzione, la qualità dell'immagine è di poco superiore a quella di un cellulare di ultima (penultima) generazione.Soprattutto quando non si riprende con luce naturale.
  • Pros: Compatta, prezzo, legge mp3
  • Cons: Bassa qualità dei filmati, colori non all'altezza
