Summary: Called the company and even they didn't know how to make this device work. It was discontinued 6 years ago. It wouldn't store music. About the only things that worked were the camera and flashlight. Sent it back!
Summary: I originally was looking for a cheap camera.(I own Olympus and Pentax only for price and quality). All I read was 3 star reviews on Vivitars. Then I came upon the Minox D1 and yes the instructions are in German and the charge cable is a Europe socket(can't be used in America). You can charge it using a laptop or any computer and it last. 1st. Its a camcorder, camera,mp3 player,microphone recorder, player, bright high lumens blue flashlight,and web cam. 2nd.
Summary: I does all it's modes well but none great. For $48 dollars that's all you get. problems ac adapter may be German 240 two prong and English manual is a download from Minox It does have a lot of cables witch is almost worth the money.
Summary: I have given this a good test and I have to say I am not impressed. Even when I am very careful to hold it steady, the pictures are still fuzzy. The audio recording is not clear. The photos and videos are about what you would expect from a cheap cell phone. Each function works about as well as a single function product you would get for $9.95. It is a jack-of-all-trades, but master of none.
Summary: OKAY SO I RECIEVE THIS AS A GIFT TO TAKE PICTURES OF MY SOON TO BE BORN SON AND THE CAMERA IS AWESOME GREAT FUNCTIONALITY. HERES THE DOWN FALL. THE OWNERS MANUAL IS ONLY IN GERMAN AND THE POWER SULLY ISNT AMERICAN ITS ALSO GERMAN WHICH WILL NOT WORK IN THE USA. SO WE HAD TO GO BUY A NEW ADAPTOR TO CHARGE MY NEW CAMERA AND I HAD TO SEARCH ON LINE FOR THE ENGLISH OWNERS MANUAL TO BE ABLE TO OPERATE MY CAMERA.
Summary: Disappointed by my recent purchase of a Sony Cybershot DSC-T10 digital camera I made a gift of it and bought a Minox DM1 digital camera, which is a shirt-pocket-size miracle. In addition to taking digital pictures (with an option to print the date on each shot or not, a useful basic feature that the hyped Sony Cybershot DSC-T10 lacked), it is also a video recorder and player, a web cam, a voice recorder, a flash light (!) and a quality MP3 player.
Summary: I bought it on a Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt for my wife, over her objections that she would never use it. Within a week I had to buy another memory card ! It's very easy to use - almost "intuitive" in that things do what you expect them to do, and fully lives up to all the expectations created in the product blurb.
Summary: Ich bin immer wieder begeistert, was das kleine Teil alles kann! Und was es kann, das macht es gut. Ich nutze das DM1 hauptsächlich als mp3-Player und als Digitalkamera, habe mir auch schon mal unterwegs einen kleinen Film angeschaut. Auch die Qualität der Ton- und Filmaufnahmen ist sehr gut, wird von mir aber kaum genutzt. Alles in allem kann ich das Gerät nur empfehlen. Gerade auf Reisen möchte ich es wegen seiner Vielfältigkeit nicht mehr missen!
Summary: Ich kann mich meinen Vorrednern nur anschließen. Das Gerät bietet alles, was man sich nur wünschen kann - und alles in einer hervorragenden Qualität! Eine große Festplatte wäre toll, aber dann nimmt man eben SD-Karten mit.
