DXG USA Unveils $170 HD Cam for Consumers

DXG USA is rolling out a slim, inexpensive HD camcorder (DXG-569V) that will be available at RadioShack and other retailers for about $170. The units, which will be available initially in silver or black, can capture video at 1280x720 at 30 fps, according to the company.

The camcorder includes a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor for still image resolution up to 8 megapixels, and a rotational 3-inch TFT screen. (It is limited to a 2X zoom lens and has no image stabilization feature.) The new DXG cam can also double as a mass storage device (it comes with 32MB memory, which can be enhanced) because it can connect to a PC to back-up video, music and other types of computer files to the camcorder’s SD card.

The DXG-569V HD also comes with software that provides PC-enabled video enhancement and alteration options.
