DXG 589V Game Camera
Camera producer DXG this afternoon rolled out its latest union of multiple devices into one: the DXG-589V is both a VGA-resolution video recorder and a 5-megapixel still photo camera, but also has consciously PlayStation-influenced buttons that combine with a swiveling LCD to turn the handheld into a gaming system with the 20 2D and 3D games sharing space on SD cards with images. The 589V adds yet more features as a portable media center with MP3 audio and MPEG-4 video playback as well as the ability to capture analog video from sources beyond the camera itself.
This latest entry in DXG's line is shipping for $200 with a bundle of image and media editing tools. SD cards up to 2GB in size are optional.
