Summary: i bought this camera a year ago, and it still amazes me. you can do movies (with a considerable resolution at 30 fps) take photos up to 4 mbpixels use it as an mp3 player or a sound recorder. cons: no flash and blurry pictures (makes the photo function nearly useless); making movies in low light places is almost impossible. For it's price, its a nice camera, but i'd wait until the DV-5000 comes out.
Summary: If you're looking for a "do it all" digital camera, and you're on a budget, this is outstanding. On the other hand, if you need, or demand superb quality prints this is not for you. The package includes a still zoomable camera (up to 4 megapixel) Digital Camcorder, Voice recorder, and MP3 player, and is a nice, well made all round package.
Summary: I decided to try this camera for my daughter. She loves to make movies. She was very impressed with the size and the many functions. However, we decided to return the camera because the video quality was very poor. The overall camera quality also made us nervous. While it did not break, it certainly looks like it could at any moment.
Summary: First off, as already said, the size is amazing - It really is about the size of a credit card. This is part of my reason for buying this particular unit, so that I could easily store it on my motorcycle for trips. The Camcorder looks nice, but feels cheaply made. The features are nice (especially when compared to the competition) and over all it performs satisfactory. The video and the still shot mode works well, but the quality seems to lack at times.
Excerpt: This camera is utterly amazing for the price! I had it all of 2003 and most of 2004 until i stupidly broke it. First thing that will hit you about this camera is the size, it is very light and fits in your hand or yur pocket well. Second, it takes great photos and videos. Pros: Takes great vibrant photos, and has a range of effects such as black and white, sepia, and more. Black and white, sepia etc takes some STUNNING pictures.
Pros: Compact, Great picture quality, Great image processing .
Cons: Doesn't take AA batteries, you have to recharge the cam's battery .
Excerpt: i bought this cammera whilst on holiday and i love it. its hard to believe you could fit so much stuff into such a small package. it looks great and is made of metal so it feels better than the average plastic rubish. it has 4 features which are: camera, camcorder, voice recorder and mp3 player.
Pros: small, sexy and full of features
Cons: no flash, low mp3 battery life and flimsy metal
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 a protective glove.

Excerpt: I purchased this on impulse a few months back for a fair whack over the £87 it's advertised for on here! I bought it as a gift for my girlfriend, and from a personal point of view I'm really happy with it - and as far as I know, so is she! It has lots of features, including MP3 player, Digital Camera, Digital Video Camera, Voice Recorder etc and while unfortunately it doesn't excel in any, it is consistently good at everything and does the job it's meant to do very well!
Excerpt: At first sight the DV4000 seemed an excellent prospect, being very light and offering the potential of VHS like quality at maximum frame rate. An inspection of the cameras screen looks promising - but my advice see it output on a computer first - then decide.Whilst it does many things - MPEG4 video, MP3 player, 2.1 mega pixel camera (interpolated to 3 mp) is a jack of all trades and a master of none.
