Chiok.'s review of Mustek DV3000


“The first thought I had when I opened the box was that...”

Written on: 25/07/2003 by Chiok. (1 review written)

Good Points
Small size, cheap, good battery life, large resolution, nice look.

Bad Points
Need good lighting, occasional poor pictures, lacking in basic features.

General Comments
The first thought I had when I opened the box was that it was the smallest thing I had ever seen. You see those L'Espion cameras that are like matchbox size, but produce poor pictures. This one might be worthwhile. For the money, it seems worthwhile, and is all around very good.

Though there are a few limitations. You need a rather large SD or MMC card to hold any good length videos on the higher setting (9 minutes low, 4 minutes high on a 32MB) It doesn't tell you how much space is left on the card and it doesn't have an optical viewfinder, so you have to use the lcd screen, but the battery life is good with it, so that's only minor. There doesn't seem to be a way to set the date on it either, all my pictures say year 2009. There's no close up feature so pictures have to be at least 0.5-0.7m for an clarity.

If basic features such as memory left and a date setting could be used, then it is a solid buy, otherwise, it falls slightly short.
