A few years ago digital cameras were very expensive at a price of over £300 for a decent one. Now the prices have fallen and the digital cameras are almost at a price to be disposable! Digital camcorders were even more expensive and you had to be loaded to afford one - but not any more! The Mustek DV range are very affordable digital camera/camcorders which are within the reach of most budgets. The DV3000 has recently been upgraded to the model DV4000 but you can still buy the older model although I'd advise to go for the upgrade. The DV3000 is available from the internet site www.directfrom.com for a price of £89.97 Inc VAT. The newer DV4000 is available from the same site for £109.00 Inc VAT which is only £20 more expensive - but well worth it as I'll explain! The newer DV4000 has its own built in battery which can be charged from the mains sockets in your house or from the USB ports of your computer. The older model needs batteries to be replaced so by upgrading you will save money on batteries in the long run! Both the DV3000 and DV4000 act as normal digital cameras and also camcorders. The DV4000 can also be used as an MP3 music player or a voice recorder or even as a webcam if connected to your computer. But it is as a camcorder that it really comes into its own. It can take about half an hour of video clips on the supplied memory card which is a MMC type of card of 32mb capacity. That might not be long enough to make films like teh lord of teh rings but it is long enough to capture some important moments on video forever. You can also buy extra memory cards from lots of internet shops for about 64mb for £25 which will give you an hour and a half when added to the free card. The camera itself is very light which makes it feel a bit cheap and plasticky but don't let that put you off, after all if you want a heavy expensive camera you can pay £600 for one! It is great for its price. The one big problem is that it
doesn't have its own light source like a flash or bulb. That makes recording in dark conditions difficult but that is only a small niggle unless you live down a cave! The DV4000 comes with its own usb cable which is handy, an AV cable for connecting to your TV, a carrying bag and strap, an earphone, software called Photo Express and even its own little tripod!!! If you are thinking of buying a digital camera don't hesitate to get one of these because at the price of around £100 they are brilliant value for money and work really well. Remember it makes more sense to get the DV4000 though, it is much better value for only an extra £20.
