Mustek DV4000 Flash Memory Camcorder and Digital Still Camera Review


The Mustek Flash memory camcorder and digital still camera can fit in most pockets or purses, and it's also really cheap at less than $100. But, the camcorder does lack many of the features of more expensive camcorders. So, is the Mustek DV4000 worth...

Buy the Mustek DV4000 at Amazon.

OK overall, but should include a flash for the price!


Great outdoor photos; love video function; size.

NO FLASH... what the heck? Not great indoor photos.

A fun camcorder


I can't believe some of the negative ratings I read about this; what do people expect? Yes, it is a bit like a "toy" camera but it is a fun toy and the price is quite fair for what you get. The video is good enough to "prove" that something really happene

Good on Brighter Side but Bad on Dark Side


Its small,compact,battery life,many features and easy to carry. Perfect for casual use and people think its a cool and smallest handycam to have

It only takes clear and perfect pictures when there is enough presence of light....If dark then the picture will look blurred and no clearance

Consumer review by:

novelty gadget, not digital camera


Obviously its cheap as hell and it has some fun features such as mp3 playback

Photos taken in anything but perfect light are worthelss and those that are well lit are still as grainy as the DVs, even on highest quality settings. No zoom lens, no flash, no stabilizer + slow shutter speed = not a good camera

Consumer review by:

Picture quality inside is not the best

Tiny, multi-function, rechargeable battery. Good picture quality once downloaded to a computer...looks like taken from expensive digital cam

LCD display is small, no flash
