January 6, 2008 It’s a general rule with technology that as time goes on, features increase and size and price decrease, and so it is with the announcement from DXG USA that they will debut their DXG-566V HD camcorder with a retail price of USD$149.99 at CES. The DXG-566V HD is a 5 megapixel digital camcorder that records video in H.264, MOV file format with an HD video resolution of up to 1280 x 720 at 30fps and D1 resolution of 720 x 480 at 30fps. It features a 5 megapixel CMOS sensor, 3-inch TFT LCD screen, 2X digital zoom and support for high capacity SD cards to increase recording time once the unit’s 32MB onboard memory is full.
As the DXG-566V HD is a true 5 megapixel digital camera (not interpolated) it can also be used as a still camera to capture photos in JPEG format with a resolution of up to 8 megapixels. It has a built-in LED flash, self-timer, white balance adjustment to control color/lighting and a USB port for easy downloading of pictures to a PC. Connecting the DXG-566V HD to a PC also allows users to copy and back-up documents, music files, pictures, and videos from the computer to the camera’s SD Card. And while the 1280 x 720 resolution of the DXG-566V HD isn’t quite up there with the 1920 x 1080 resolution offered by camcorders like the Canon HG10 HD or the Sony CX7K, neither is the price.
