IF you spend the extra money for rechargable batteries & a 2 GB card it is well worth it's small pri


For the $69.00 that I paid at Radio Shack with a 20% rebate to boot this is a GREAT STARTER camera. You DO need to invest in rechargable batteries and a larger memory card (another $50.00 total) The movie camera works better during the day and you do...

It will tape for over an hour and a half with a 2 GB card and using rechargable batteries. I PROMISE! It is very small and easy to use. You do have to remember that is sold for under $100.00

The light will not turn on when using the camera for taping at night. It will work for still pictures but this is not found in the owners manual

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

Consumer review by:

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...

Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, I took about 1500 pix on, Many pix on sd card, Pastel bw or sepia pix, Simple Controls, Solarize pictures, Versatile

Poor Battery Life, Veiw screen poor outdoors, Zoom deteriorates image

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.

Durable, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls

Poor Battery Life

Consumer review by:

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
