Summary: Well, I've had this camera for over a year and it's done admirably. I've taken it across the country and it's taken quite a few beatings, it's showing some wear [dents/scratches] but works fine. The frame rate is a little bit slower than i'd like [you won't be able to see and baseball pitches, but you will see them hit : ) ] I like it as an entry camcorder and the mp3 player is nice to spend idle moments with. I would suggest getting at least a 512 mb.
Summary: I bought this camera in July 2004 and received it several days earlier than expected. It takes good pictures and short "movies" but doesn't offer a flash. The memory card was too small for my needs. This is not a camera for a serious photographer, but its compact design makes it perfect for taking along... wherever. Well worth the price.
Summary: i bought this camera around the end of july 2004,it shipped 6 days before they said it would, and it was delivered in time for me to take it on vacation with me. i made videos and took pictures with it they turn out great,one of my favorite things about it is that when you are in a moving car and take a picture it comes out clear as crystle, and you can't tell that you were moving.i have a few problems with it though,there isn't a light on it so you can't take pix or...
Summary: I think some people aren't using this right. Theres an adjustment on the lens for focus and you should have gotten a strap with it. The only bad thing i found with this is it not being able to shoot in dim lighting. This isn't for professional use,look at the price. Otherwise it's perfect.
Summary: Mustek has done very well with the DV4000. It's best features include size (it's about the size of a small index card) built in battery recharger, tapeless recording and a very good web cam feature. The DV4000's main weaknesses are fairy poor still photo quality, very large file sizes and lack of flash. Overall, it is a good tool for using outdoors or during the daylight hours.
Summary: I purchased this camera so i could have something to record local bands playing, and just for generally messing around. I will admit, this camera is no XL1, but THAT IS NOT WHAT I PAID FOR, but it's good for filming things you want to watch later and laugh at. The digital stills are usable, and if you have photoshop, the quality really doesn't matter anyways.
Summary: Positives: A++ for Size A++ for Design A++ for Cool Factor A+ for MP3 ability A for sound recording A for the LCD Screen A for all the extras it came with (if you buy most cameras you'll have to buy extras such as ear phones, straps, connectors, tripods, cases seperately, these thing can drive the cost up, especially if you buy domestically where you have to pay sales taxes, crappy GST PST!) B+ for picture taking, hey, this thing is capable in capable hands!
Summary: I'll start off by saying I made one BIG MISTAKE before I purchased this device. I actually thought I could use it as a "primary" camcorder, but then a light bulb went on and I had to remind myself I only paid $160 for it... This device is not for anyone who want's to record once in a lifetime activites (ie; weddings,vacations, other major events, etc.etc.etc.
Summary: The first impressison was very favourable,- the camera was well packed and gave the impression and feel of good quality. Having used this camera for appprox. 3 months I have had little occasion to use it for any other tasks than as a video camera. I like to carry it with me at all times due to it's small size. Overall, as an occasional user, I consider the Mustek DV4000 good value for money.
