DXG-589V 5MP Digital Camera/Camcorder is a Game Pad Too

DXG-589V Digicam/Camcorder/Game Pad/MP3 Player

It does double-duty as a 5-megapixel still camera and a camcorder. It even doubles up as an MP3 player and video game pad too. But can the DXG-589V really be a serious imaging device? Or be a serious gaming console for that matter?

DXG USA (whose parents hail from Taipei, with shops in Shenzen, China) touts the DXG-589V as the ultimate one-stop entertainment center featuring a combination 5-megapixel digital camera, VGA camcorder, video game player, digital music player, and direct video recording from TVs or DVD players.

DXG says it shoots “full motion MPEG-4 video at 640 x 480” (just like my VGA webcam does). What, you expected HD-quality movies from this one? It’s for kids, for crying out loud.

Even with a 3-inch LTPS screen, and 20 games built-in, I still would think twice before plunking two benjamins on this one.
