A great travel camera

 

I have other cameras but I love this one the most. It has some very special features. I took it on the Tour de Thailand and bicycle 750 miles using it from a moving bicycle. I would point and shoot with just one hand and it took beautiful pictures...

Versatile from moving bicycle, Rich Features, Good in Low light

Small dark screen, Bad Makro for close ups, small screen

Keep your 95 dollars

 

I bought this camera a couple years ago and it was the worst 95 dollars I have ever spent. I was working in a retail store and someone was looking at this camera and I told them not to buy it cause it was awful I told them to go to a different camera....

Lightweight, Easy to Use, Compact

Bad in Low Light, Weak Zoom, Lacks features

You Get What You Pay For

 

You really get what you pay for with this product. It was good at first but it drains the battery so fast in like 10-15 minutes it drains. The sound quality is horrible. It makes it sound robotic. I would get a camcorder with a charger.

Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls, Versatile

Inadequate Features, Low-Quality Recordings, Poor Battery Life, Poor Sound

Best value for price

 

I took about 1500 pix and videos most at 15 to 20 mph for a road bike during the Tour de Thailand bicycle tour. Really I got the most fabulous pictures you can imagine but two big problems for some people would be battery life and a dull screen. I...

Love This Camera

 

I like this product. It's a battery drainor but you don't have to wait four hours for the batery to charge like my other dust collectors. Just pop in 3 aaa and your good to go.

Pretty bad video - Eats batteries like crazy!

 

The Mustek DV-5300SE Camcorder is not for the person who is serious about either videos or photographs. The quality of both are pretty bad. The camcorder eats batteries like crazy and it gets even worse in camera mode with flash! If you get 10 flash ...

Cheap, expendable, kid quality

Not a real camcorder. Picture is poor. Batteries die quickly
