Still waiting for the on-air presentations of the Aiptek MPVR and the Mustek DV-9300.

The Aiptek already has 3+ star customer rating, just from web sales.

No ratings yet for the Mustek.

Is the Mustek DV9300 really an MPVR / Diglife 810? Seems like it. But no image stabilization or remote control. And a 2" screen. So why bother with it?

It also can't record from TV like MPVR.

There are differences - the DV-9300 has
  1. No A/V input [/*]
  2. Always on video IS [/*]
  3. Auto-Shutoff 2 min/5 min/Never [/*]
  4. Operates with LCD closed [/*]
  5. Night shutterbut no night video mode [/*]
  6. Interval Shutter / Interval Video [/*]
  7. Can use NP-60 or NP-120 battery [/*]
  8. Charge battery in camera [/*]
  9. Titles on MP3s [/*]
  10. Video Fader [/*]
  11. Motion Detect Video (limited range)[/*]
Why bother? Today, I wouldn't but since I own one, I still follow it.

So it actually has all those oddball features. Oops, I'll have to put them back in the entry in the Hybrid List.

WHy Bother.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"OldHacer when you use the interval shutter, can you snap a pic, and how long does each interval take it snaps four shots at 1 hour per shot as my example?

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"will the battery hold out that long even though its two hour limit on all but you mentioned np-60, and np-90 they are different and thicker batteries?

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"other hybrids well you need to adapt a new style battery ?

For interval shutter, the intervalsare 1, 5, 10, or 30 minutes. Elapsed time settings are1, 2, 6, 12, 24 hours or Never (no limit).

For interval record, the intervals and elapsed times are the same as interval shutter (Never is called Full for video). Record times are 5, 10, 15, or 30 seconds.

I haven't tried a full duration test, but doubt an NP-60 would last ... maybe the NP-120 would. There's aways the A/C adapter. Then you have to worry about the 1 GB card limit.
