Now there's a good question. I tried, and failed. The earphones have two problems.

One is the micro-jack. You can solve this by using an adaptor, which I have. Or if you're into soldering etc. you can replace a mini with a micro jack.

The second problem is that these cameras have very low power output to the earphone jack. Most earphones use more power, and so on the 7000/720/S670, you can't get enough volume out of them.

I was unable to find earphones that provided adequate volume. I looked for earphones that had integrated amplifiers, but couldn't find any such thing. So I just put up with the original earphones. Maybe someone else knows how to solve this.

Ira,

Sorry, I don't own that one and I don't remember anyone in the forum saying they own it. I do own a DV-3500, a broken DV-5500. and a DV-9300.

The DV-5200 is the least expensive of the 4 new Mustek modes, with a street price of around $90 USD. Like my DV-3500, it has a 2 megapixel CMOS sensor, 1.5 inch LCD screen, a max video resolution of 640x480 at up to 10 frames per second, and runs on 2 AA batteries. But the DV-5200 adds macro focus (limited manual focus) and flash for stills and deletes the PC camera feature.

The camera will have problems with low-light situations (without flash). The low frame rate for video will make clips a little jerky. With a 2 MP true resolution, you will be able to see pixelization in large (8x10) still prints.

John

What I can't figure out is why Mustek issued the 5200. It was far from a current design, and they already had lots of basic models.

As long as someone buying one realizes its limitations, and that it's very far from state-of-the-art hybrids, there's no reason why someone would not be as satisfied with it as people were when that level of performance was typical for hybrids. Also good for a gift, or as a starter hybrid to help figure out what you might like in a more expensive one.

sg....the mustek was the start 1meg 2 meg interpolated to 3,4,5,6,8,10,11 meg not just 2x zoom 3x,8x,10,18xzoom but now hd quality, As there is a demand for high def the hybrid will upgrade to hd quality and lets not forget 8mb sd 16,32.64.128 to 2 gif cards, I bet by the years end or 2008 we'llsee a high definetion hybrid and a 8 gig card that would record 2 hours of movie, Sony has theirs out and cost around 2 grand give or take. nowwatcha gonna pay?
