Summary: It's small enough to fit in my purse and a great little camera/camcorder. If you want a dedicated camcorder/digital camera that takes professional grade photos/movies, this isn't the camera for you; however, for less than $200 it's a steal. And you can get a 512MB storage card for $100 @ buy.com to go with it!
Summary: I just got this camera a few days ago, and i have been using it almost every second of those few days. I'm a 15 year old skateboarding metal head. And I use this camera to take videos of my friends and I skateboarding at our local spots, and to listen to my heavy metal at school. This camera is the one of the best choices I have made, ever. When I received the camera i was ecstatic about it.
Summary: I received this camera for Christmas and it's completely awesome. I'm just a teenager, but I think it really deserves 5 stars. First of all, I was surprised by the quality of the video. This is no mini-DV camera or anything, but it does have full-motion video, a great microphone, and decent picture quality. I bring it to school and film stuff blowing up in Chemistry class (hehehe!), use the MP3 player mode while mowing lawns, and I take photos of, well, anything.
Summary: If people would spend the time and read the directions they would not have any problems!!! Sure, I will have to purchase a larger memory card, but, this camera is amazing!!!! To respond to the comment that the camera strap is the size of dental floss, he is speaking about the lens cap strap. The camera strap is very thick and sturdy. The pictures are very sharp and clear and the compact look is sleek!!
Summary: I bought for my 10 year old daughter but ended up keeping for myself...before you call me a chump, I had a reason. The camera is a bit TOO small and complicated for a 10 year old, especially adding into this the concept that you really do have to slow your movement and steady as she goes while filming unless you want blurred images. So I opted to keep this little puppy and find her a good used camcorder on ebay instead.
Summary: Review by liuc2 and my ideas: Resolution is 2Mpix (2 CMOS) not 4Mpix. ANS: It said clearly in the AD and manual. but it works like 1 Mpix only. Pictures are usually blurry (even if you use a tripod) and color is not right (too yellow or too red) ANS: As everybody can see from the pictures offered by 'iwylu', the images were sharp and the colors were also very good.
Summary: I purchased this Item. But before I did, I spent a whole month researching other items. After comparing serveral items I decided to go for this Item. Eventhough I found many negative reviews for this Item, I decided to purchase it. The most common thing I noticed by many reviewers was the following: They do not understand the difference between a cmos sensor and the lens of a regular camera.
for the money, this rocks! Very positive experience here...

Summary: Wow, some very negative reviews here. I took a chance anyway and have been quite pleased! For the price you are paying, it's amazing to have all these features. Still camera, digital camcorder, MP3 player, sound recorder, card reader...a very versatile item. At my band's practice recently I took some pics, recorded a few video clips, taped the sound from an informal jam session, and still had plenty of room on a 256meg SD card.
Not a really Review, but a quick reminder! I like DV4000.

Summary: I think this camera offers good quality photos, but I do agree with some others that Mustek didn't offer with a good manual and a good after-service as well. If you want to see some sample photos by this camera, please have a look at this site: http://www.mustek.com.tw/Taiwan/html/prod_camra/gsmart_lcd3/sample.html Well, don't bother to read those Chinese characters, just left click on the photos and you'll see larger image.
