General Comments
well i received my Mustek DV3000 yesterday and i must say it is more than i expected for the 150 price tag... it works great and seems to hold up pretty well... I already dropped it off my bike at 15mph and its still recording.

The vid quality is about as good as internet vid.. nothing you could make a movie with.

The pic quality is about par with mid range digicams.

The software included is okay. I mostly hate the interfaces... Thats Ulead for you though.

The build quality is great for such a cheap camera.. I mean great.

The battery life is pretty good.. it runs on 2 AA batteries and has lasted me about 25 min of record time so far and i have more life still..

The 32MB card that comes with the camera holds about 500 low res pics, and 250 ish high res pics. It holds about 5 min of high resolution video and about 13 min of low res video. the FPS = 15

The only main gripes i have about the camera are that you cant zoom WHILE you are recording and that the cam isnt that great in low light. Ive since then come up with a fix about the low light situation that is not a problem at all and is actually better because it uses an external battery for the lighting so it doesnt cut into recording time.

Other than that i would recommend this cam to everyone. it is a great toy to mess around with and get some stuff on the internet, its nothing like a Nikon Coolpix 5700 or anything though so dont get your hopes too high. It is perfect for screwing around and getting a smaller size vid on the internet. or even pics of junk you are selling or just cool little pics. Bascally anythng you dont want to screw up your good camera for you can use this..
