DXG 301V

 

Review: Look! Up in the sky! It's a camcorder! It's a camera! It's...neither? With its redundantly named DXG-301V, digital camera newcomer DXG claims to have shattered price and functionality barriers by putting a 3.2-megapixel sensor inside a...

The idea of putting a 3-megapixel CCD in a digital camcorder that sells for less than a MiniDV camera is a noble one; if the DXG-301V can produce good-looking video and images, budget-minded consumers will take notice

The DXG-301V's specs make the road to high performance look like an uphill trek. Its lens lacks any optical zoom, and the camera's 10X digital zoom will only degrade image quality. Getting 80 minutes of footage at full VGA (640x480) resolution requires...

The DXG-301V's lack of features puts it in something of a budgetary no-man's land. At $199, it's more expensive than comparable low-budget multimedia device offerings from Aiptek and Gateway. It takes 3-megapixel photos, but for the same price, the...

Waste of $$$

 

This thing is a waste of money if it's more than $50. The videos are Windows media .ASF files NOT .mp4 or .mpeg. Video is no way any better than a $30 webcam at any res or quality. Photos are a mix. Some are good some are blurry. Zoom ... Expand full...

Good still camera; sorry video camera

 

The small size and the price of this camera is what attracted me to it in the first place. However, after using the camera on vacation out West this summer, I wish I hadn't wasted my money. Still pictures were very good. Video was terrible and zooming...

The small size is nice. The price is right

Digital zoom makes video unwatchable; Shooting video fills up a 512mb card fast
