Blogging In Style Magazine: DXG-506V

Jun 14, 2007

In Style Magazine picked the DXG-506V MP3/digital camcorder/digital camera all-in-one for it's summer accessory must have. You can enter to win one over at In Style as well.

It retails for under $100, which makes it accessible to the masses; the pink is decidedly summery, but it also comes in blue, black and silver. It's powered by 4 AAA batteries and measures 3.46" (l) x 2.63" (w) x 1.6" (d). Some tech specs after the jump...

• 1/1.8" 5.13 Megapixel CMOS Sensor
• 1.7" LCD Screen
• Built-in 32MB of Flash Memory
• SD / MMC Card Slot (up to 1GB cards)
• Movie Resolution - 640x480 Pixels @ 30 fps / 320x240 Pixels @ 30ps
• MP3 Playback
• Voice Recording
• Can be used as a PC Webcam
• Flash Modes - Auto / Off / Forced / Red Eye Reduction
• Self-Timer - 5 sec. / 10 sec. / 30 sec.

The small memory size makes a storage card a must, so that adds to the price, as well as the fact that it runs on AAA batteries means you're likely to need a charger as well. Overall, though, for the price, this could be a good option for a teen in your life or for summer fun when you don't want to be paranoid about something happening to your camera.
