Mustek DV5500

 

Offering no less than seven different functions, among them the ability to use it as a webcam, voice recorder or MP3 player, the DV5500 is an impressively versatile device.

DV 5500 Digital Camcorder Review

 

People either love or hate Mustek products and this camcorder makes me love Mustek even more. I know they have some quality issues with their products but I love this thing. It's so small and compact and it's quality is AWESOME for the price. One thing...

Great camcorder for the money! Very slim & small. Solid build and the quality exceeded my expectations.

Buttons and switches seem low grade but what do you expect for that price. User interface could use an upgrade, menu graphics look like Windows 95 style.

Great Average Performer

 

It is a multi-function gadget, does what it is supposed to do, but does not excel at everything. I have been using it heavily for a month now. It has an excellent LCD display and a macro function, which I needed. It would be a bonus if one could ...

Great multi-function gadget, and a good (not brilliant) all round performance

Interface is not customisable, via firmware etc. The multi-function button was devised by a sadist

Nice for the price

 

This is a decent digital camera / camcorder. I paid 140 for it, and am pleased with it after a bad start. The unit has excellent resolution, and takes fine pictures with a variety of settings for lighting conditions and backgrounds. The camcorder ...

Value for the money

Buttons are "touchy" and difficult to use

Mustek DV 5500 Digital Camcorder

 

I really like Mustek dv5500. I think it's very unique. The shape is my favorite small and cool. Easy to use and easy to learn.

The shape is so small and save some space. The features are great and shipping was fast!!

Pictures are not that clear.

Mustek DV 5500 Digital Camcorder

 

The DV 5500 was designed with such intricate consideration and care that quality is, without a doubt, guaranteed. This Multi device isn't a camera with features 'built-in' to it; rather it is 7 high quality expensive devices, in one inexpensive...

AWESOME all around quality and flexibility

video is slightly less than average

Mustek DV 5500 Digital Camcorder

 

It is really nice for its futures. There are not many words to express what I have said just now. I like what I can do with it, it multifuntion, but it does not impress me with the stile and design. I have seen some other that provably have a better...

It is multifuntional plus it is more affordable than other brands.

It is bulky, not an impresive design. Looks like a box with an arm.
