Gateway 450RGH review: Gateway 450RGH

 

Built-in flash; 64MB of internal memory; SD/MMC slot; adjustable exposure, white balance, and ISO; three video-compression modes.

Severe color shifts in video; awkward controls; no voice recorder; no Webcam functions.

The DV-S20 has a few extras uncommon in a mini cam, but poor image quality makes it a hard sell.

Gateway DV-S20 Review

 

The major strong points of the DV-S20 are its size and ease of use. The camera is easily operated by one hand.
