DXG USA Expands Core HD Digital Camcorder Line

NEW YORK — DXG USA has expanded
its core HD digital camcorder

The DXG-5B6V QuickShots camcorder
series (available now at $80 suggested
retails each) features vertically
styled models in six color options, each
capable of up to 720p/30 fps HD video
resolution (in H.264 compression format)
and 16-megapixel still image resolution.
A 2.4-inch LCD viewscreen flips
out of the side of the camera. Images are
recorded to SD cards and can be played
back on a TV via an HDMI output.

DXG sales and marketing senior VP
Paul Goldberg said DXG’s designer Luxe
Collection proved to be so popular with
women last year that the company is offering
three lines of horizontally styled
models in three color patterns (nine
SKUs). Each are shipping now at $150
suggested retails. All offer 720p/30 fps
HD resolution, H.264 recording, up to
8-megapixel resolution and a 3-inch flipout
LCD screen.

The company will launch its first HD
1080p model in the Luxe Collection on
the Home Shopping Network starting
June 5.

For active shooters, starting in May
DXG will offer four models in its DXG
Sportster series, featuring two models
with horizontal styling and two with vertical
pistol-grip body designs.

All can be taken underwater to a depth
of 10 feet for up to one hour, and are said
to be ideal for people who want to shoot
video while skiing, boating or playing by
the pool.

The DXG-5B2V HD ($130) offers
the same feature pack, but records video
in up to 720p/30 fps resolution.

The DXG-5B7V HD ($150) offers
the same features and resolution at the
5B1V, but substitutes vertical, pistol-grip
body styling.

The DXG-5B8V HD ($130) has the
same features and resolution as the 5B2V,
but with a vertical, pistol-grip design.

For more advanced picture quality, the
DXG is now offering four models in its
Pro Gear line. All feature up to 1080p/30
fps HD image capture, HDMI output
and Arcsoft editing software.

The top-of-the-line DXG-A85V
HD ($330) offers both 1080p/30 fps
and 720/60 fps
HD video capture
in H.264 format
and still images
in up to 20-megapixel
It includes a 10-
megapixel CMOS
imaging sensor, a
12x optical zoom
lens with 10x digital
extension, 3-
inch LCD touchscreen, high-speed
sequential shooting mode, and dual
capture mode for shooting both video
and stills simultaneously. Also included
is Eye-Fi wireless photo and video
transfer and an advanced manual-focus
system with electronic image-stabilization

The DXG-A80V ($300) steps down in still image resolution to 12 megapixels,
with an optical zoom range to 5x.

The DXG-590V HD ($250) carries
the same features as the A80V but substitutes
a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor.

The entry Pro Gear model, DXG-587
HD ($200), drops the Eye-Fi wireless
transfer systems, dual-capture mode and
high-speed sequential shooting mode,
and substitutes a 5x optical/4x digital
zoom range.
