Joining the growing array
of low-cost camera / camcorder hybrids
is the Mustek DV520T, which sits a few notches below (in quality and price) the TX1s
and Xacti HD2s
of the world but still manages to handle the basics for the no-frills set. The two-faced device sports a handheld design with a two-inch flipout LCD to monitor the action, and internally, you'll find a 5.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, 64MB of storage, USB 2.0 connectivity, TV out, integrated flash, an SD slot that supports cards up to 2GB in size, a voice recorder, and an MP3 player as well. Aside from snapping stills, this unit also records VGA movies at 30 frames-per-second, and while we can't imagine them being of any real use, an 8x digital zoom and "digital image stabilization" are nevertheless included. Mustek
's DV520T isn't likely to take home any image quality awards, but it might not be a half bad backup for just $129. More pics after the break.
