Good for it's price

 

I think it's a great product for it's price. Good photo quality but average video recording. Another thing I hate the AA battery thing, no rechargeable battery. Got it as a gift, I would have done better by myself.

Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Great Picture Quality

Low-Quality Recordings, Poor Battery Life, Poor Sound

Mustek DV-5200 SD/MMC Card Digital Camcorder

 

The mustek brand has been out for years.

good starter camera for young adults to peek interest before moving to a more expensive model.

It's cheap.... Not practical for long term family use.
