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
