DXG-572V Video Camera

Budget camera maker DXG today launched the DXG-572V for starter videographers. The camera records NTSC-resolution video in an MPEG-4 format easily used for uploading clips to YouTube or social networking sites; rather than rely on DV tapes or DVDs, the camera stores memory on either its built-in 32MB of flash or on removable SD cards up to 2GB in size. It also doubles as a basic still camera, DXG claims; though zoom is strictly digital, the sensor shoots true 5.13-megapixel images without the interpolation often used by entry cameras. The device further doubles as a voice recorder for short memos.

Live previews are shown on a 2-inch swiveling LCD, and clips are transferred directly across USB 2.0; rather than choose lithium-ion batteries, DXG has opted instead for disposable but more easily replaceable AA batteries to power the camera. DXG claims the 572V is availabile immediately without secondary storage for $150.
