DXG-125V sporty compact camcorder
by Mark R
The DXG-125V is designed for those who regularly hike through the woods, ski down high mountains, or sail through the ocean. Sadly, I am not part of this extreme crowd, but if I was, then I could use this camera to record my adventures. The DXG has a rubberized grip that can protect it against the rugged wear and tear. You may not be able to scuba dive with it, but this all-weather camcorder can resist moisture quite well.
Sadly, it only has a 1/4 CMOS 1.0 Megapixel Sensor, which is only good for still shots on an ordinary cameraphone. It also only has 128MB of Flash Memory, but this can be expanded with a SD card. The video can shoot in High Definition formats of H.264 and WVGA and 720p, both at 30 frames per second.
As you can see, it has a candybar form that allows the user to point, shoot, and film and view the results with the 2.0 TFT screen. The DXG-125V comes with a clip with a compass for a definite “outdoorsy” look, as well as HDMI cable, USB, software, and all the other usual digital camera accessories plus a nice-looking clamshell zipper-shut case. It also comes with a tiny pair of headphones, because this DXG camcorder is also MP3 compatible.
You should be able to pick up the DXG-125V at the DXG site for $139.99 in red, green, or camouflage colors.
