DXG-506V Digital Camera

 

Expensive cameras are not for everyone, but everyone does want a camera with ample qualities to get the job done. DXG realizes this and as a result, they have released their 506V digital camera. To call it a digital camera is an understatement though,...

Presto Video Works is the packaged video editor. I toyed with this briefly using other videos I have, not the ones taken with the camera as they either did not download off the camera properly or were corrupted in the transfer.

Great For The Cost

 

Bought this camera for a trip to Europe. Used Energizer rechargeable batteries, they lasted all week. Bought it BECAUSE it uses AAA batteries. AAA batteries are available world wide. How can you charge a camera on the road in Europe?? 220 volts there,...

Uses AAA batteries ; Uses super cheap 2GB cards ; Very compact

Lense cap has lost the "snap" to stay in place

useless -- miniscule battery life

 

No reputable store should offer this rip-off. Rich Murray 505-501-2298 rmforall@comcast.net

only $ 80 at Office Depot, plus $ 20 2GB card, stimulates desire tor good 640X480 pistol style point and shoot video camera

15-30 minutes alkaline ( $ 2.50/4) battery life, poor manual in too tiny print, hard to grasp in hand, controls too tiny for adult fingers, no mike, power , or tripod socket

The worst video/camera ever!

 

Cheap isn't the word to discribe this product! It should not be sold at all!!! The images for a "5.1MP" camera should look better than ones taken from a children's digital camera. The videos are terrible and every picture is blurry. Don't buy this...

Small size

POOR videos and pictures

Consumer review by:

I loved the look if it....but, it wasn't enough

 

I bought this camcorder when it was on sale for $99. Such a great deal for a camera with so many features as well, who could resist right? You get what you pay for. Pictures come out mostly blurry, but I've had a few exceptionally good ones. Videos...

Small, Compact, Camcorder AND Digital Cam, CHEAP, many bonus features
