April 30, 2008 Joining DXG USA’s previously reviewed DXG-566V low cost HD camcorder is the new, almost equally low priced DXG-569V HD. Like its stable mate the DXG-569V HD sports a 5 Megapixel CMOS sensor for still image resolution interpolated up to 8 Megapixels and records HD video up to 1280 x 720 in H.264 MOV file format at 30fps, but changes the form factor to an slim, vertical design. In addition, the DXG-569V HD also features a digital voice recorder and it can also can be used as a mass storage device by connecting it to a PC via USB 2.0 to copy and back-up files from the computer to the camcorder’s SD Card.

The camcorder also features a rotational 3” TFT screen and an A/V out port to display video on a TV in 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios. When used as a still camera the unit captures images in JPEG format at up to 8MP resolution. A built in LED flash, self-time and white-balance adjustment round out the still camera features. The DXG-569V HD comes with 32MB of onboard memory which can thankfully be extended through the SD Card slot which supports High-Capacity SD Cards. Included with the camcorder is the ArcSoft Total Media Extreme software to create and watch your movies.

While none of the features of the DXG569V HD are groundbreaking, the price is definitely the selling point for this compact unit. It is available in silver or black for a retail price of just US$169.99.
