It looks pretty, and the published specs â€“ at least on paper â€“ are quite enticing. But something tells me you have to cast a wary eye on something that sounds a bit too good to be true, like this one.
For $149 the DXG-506V offers 5.1 megapixels and that’s quite impressive; but itâ€™s basically a digital still camera masquerading as a camcorder that can take VGA videos in the MPEG-4 format.
You could try offering this to your teenager, and hope that the colors would appeal to him or her (pink, blue, silver, black); its MP3 player should.
Itâ€™s being offered by a company called DXG USA. Is it made in the USA? I donâ€™t know.
