I am going to buy Genius G-shot DV610 and I am looking for someone who ownes this hybrid. I would like to see some sample videos. I found on this forum, that DV610 is clone of Digilife DDV-660, but I couldn't find samples for this camera neither. There should be also clone from Orite (Orite 3020) and there is two samples on this forum. But I am looking for really representative samples (In all bitrates and in various conditions). If DV610 not possible then Digilife DDV-660 would be good too.

Can anyone help ?

Thanks for all your answers.

Get an





instead. Only advantage the DV610 has is 8x zoom (compared to 4x of the MPVR).

But it's also MISSING AV-IN (DVR) capability. Otherwise, the cameras are nearly identical. Scratch THAT. 610 only supports 512MB SD card. MPVR = 2GB. AND MPVR is a Personal Media Player (hence the MP)meaning you can convert your movies into it's format and play them back on the 2.5 inch screen. I think the prices are very close as well. Go with the MPVR OR if you want to spend a LITTLE more, the DDV-1000. It's more expensive, but a better overall hybrid than the MPVR.

The G-Shot DV610 also lacks image stabilization, which is a big disadvantage in my books. Given that the 610 = the Digilife DDV-660, and the 660 has been followed by the 670, S670, 720, 810, 910, and now the 920, the 610 is rather off-the-pace. But still well worth it and a nice camera if the price is low enough.

3FaCE: I come from Czech republic and here supply of hybrids is very poor. And I don't want to buy it abroad. And I don't care about capacity of SDs.

sgspirit: It has image stabilization. See

EDIT: In other words: I have been reading this forum and other sources pretty long time and I know which qualities has MPVR and other hybrids. But after comparing advantages and disadvantages, I decided to buy this camera.

fishycomics: I don't want anybody to tell me which model to buy. I can make this decision myself. I only asked if someone had sample videos of DV610 or DDV-660.
