Anyone know what camera the "PDVR" is? Is this the MPVR? Circuit city has this for $119, says it has a 2.4" screen.

Here is the Link you are talkin about........;forum_id=92

here was your chance to recievee it at a lower price at 88.00

it is the same one unles specified with 6 or 8 meg then it could be a dv8800.

The specs say that it is a 6 Mp, so maybe it is the 8800?

fishycomics Aug 12, 2006 9:05 PM

it is a dv6800

maybe a closer look at the store

asking them why 3 prices

rgvcam Aug 14, 2006 11:50 AM

The DV8800 is 8MP. It's the MPVR that's 6MP.

Just FYI, my local CC store now has both the MPVR ($149) and the PDVR ($99) in stock for differnt prices. These can't be the same camera, but I have not idea what the difference is; the cameras looked the same in the package.

mpvr dv6800 and aipteks name R-PKDV58

now I would say be careful different firmware can be different models

one issue isa vid /aud never fixed

so they opted to a higher firmware

and thus a model number change

this has happ'ed 3 x already

hope this helps out

dv8800 or PVr is the other dud.

Maybe the PDVR is missing the AV-IN feature that the MPVR has? I remember awhile ago looking at one of the international Aiptek websites and seeing a camera that was basically the same, but without the AV-IN.

I remember seeing the P-DVR in Circuit City as well. In fact I mentioned it in another thread. It was not on display but underneath in a cabinet. It looked like it had the remote included from what I remember. Can you confirm this? If so, then for $99, if it has the same specs as the MPVR at least, then it's a good buy.

I just noticed that Circuit City has it listed now instead of the MPVR but otherwise it looks exaclty the same and has the same specs. It's still $149 though.

I do like this quote from a review "You have to stay still for about 15 seconds before the camera actually takes the picture. That's a long time when taking a picture!"

I think that's probably an exaggeration unless they really have cut back on the hardware!
