General Comments
I purchased this Mustek DV3000 thinking I was buying a high quality camcorder.

My aiptek pocket dv does as good a job at 1/8th the price.

If there is 3.1 megapixal I would like to know where it is. I tried the camera in every mode possible and never came out with what I would call a decent picture or video.

Mustek should stick with scanners and get out of the camera business.

Come on...what do you expect for the money? A top end video camera? The thing costs around $US100, while not a toy, it does a reasonable job.

<br>If Harold feels ripped off, I am not sure what he was expecting to get for the price.

What he says is rubbish. He's just trying to hate it on purpose.

Harold, your obviously not the brightest chap if you think your buying a high quality digital camcorder for £109 quid or so and as far as saying you aiptek just does as good job at 1/8th the price <---i doubt it, ive seen the chepest aiptek digital camcorder for £40 and although the video quality is the same, the picture quality is substansualy lower at 1.3 mega pixels.....so harold stick not knowing anything and get out of cameras....

Where could you purchase a high quality camcorder for approximately 18 BP Sterling? I have the DV 2000 and it takes great videos and still pictures. Your review is totally unrealistic and slanderous.

Considering this Video Digital Camera won the
<br> DIMA 2003 Digital Camera Shoot-Out out of 71 other "higher class" cameras It must be a good digital/ videocamera, maybe you just got the bad apple of the batch?

For the money it's a GREAT deal.. I've wanted to shoot digital movies from my cam for a long time, but could never afford it. This cam takes the videos (i've added a 256mb SD memory card which is nice) and the pictures that I want it to. If you are getting lousy images, perhaps you should buy a tripod and mount it on that. I have no problems getting nice pictures. The only drawback people should be aware of is the lack of a flash. You need a regularly lit environment to use this camera. Considering the price, that's a small tradeoff for what you get. If you want high end video features, etc., go spend 300 bones. If you want an incredibly handy and versatile dvcam at a great price, buy the dv3000.

How much did Harold pay? if the same as me (£109) where can he buy the aiptek for £15? I am delighted with the little devil, it came with a 32 mb card a case, batteries and all the wires, the software works and the camera is perfectly acceptable at this price. It takes far better clips than either my macica or sony DSC-20.The fact that it has an LCD and playback etc. is remarkable, my only gripe is that the close focus is not the best at 0.7m
