Excerpt: I bought this camcorder some 5-6 month ago, and I am quite satisfied wi it. It's great for starters and people who want to have something in memory. The pictures are sometimes blur, but sometimes they are great.
Excerpt: Before buying the Mustek DV 5000, I'd considered many other options of video camera, namely those that used mini-DV tapes. However, having done some research on the internet, I found that my PC wasn't compatible with that type of camera. Then I came across the Mustek DV 5000.
Excerpt: The Mustek Dv5000 defintely is not something that apllies to the "you get what you pay for" attitude. I bought this camera a few months ago as I had been looking for a small compact digital camera that mixed style with varying features.
Pros: small and compact with many features
Cons: uses two AA batteries which can run out very quickly
Excerpt: My first impressions of this camera were 'wow, that's so small'. It really is tiny. But this doesn't mean it's not absolutely feature-packed, because this tiny camera boasts all the features you'd expect from a camera twice the size. The first thing to note is the resolution.
Pros: Nice compact camera, lots of features, brilliant video
Cons: Stills aren't very good, poor in - built memory, poor flash
Excerpt: I recently upgraded myself to a digital camcorder from VHS and I have to say that the Mustek DV 5000 is a smart peice of kit. Videos, Pictures, Mp3, usb storage. The compact design is lightweight and palmsized so even a person with small hands can still use all the features of this Camera.
Excerpt: I have owned both the Mustek DV-5000 and it's predecessor the Mustek DV-4000. The main difference in the 2 is that the dv5000 can take AA batteries, so you can make sure you have battery wherever you are, and also the dv5000 has a flash.
Pros: Price, Features, AA Baterries
Cons: Picture quality is not accurate to what you see on preview screen
Excerpt: I bought this camera for around £80 from an online retailer. You can shop around online for the best buy. I also bought a SCD card to upgrade the initial memory capacity of 30mb, which isn't very much when it comes to a mp3 player/recorder/video capture/ still photograph gadget.
Excerpt: Okay, before I start, let me say that for the money you pay for this little gadget, its incredible. I doubt you will find anything else in this price bracket that can match the mustek DV5000 I must however point out things that people would need to know.
Pros: Super compact, light, good closeups
Cons: Difficulty with different lighting, not a webcam
Excerpt: First saw this camera on a gadget shopping channel and thought that it was too good to be tru, looked at loads of reviews, and still thought that it was too cheap to do all it states. After being persuaded by my son, I thought i'd give it a try.
Excerpt: Ciao have got the best price for this neat little device spot on. I ordered mine from Directfrom.com for £86.88 on 28/11/04 as a Christmas present for my 13 year old daughter. The order was confirmed by email immediately with a 1 – 3 day delivery time.
Pros: size and features
Cons: blurry images in video mode when you move the camera
