DXG-566V: A $150 High Def Camcorder?!

The What: DXG has always gone for the low cost bragging rights and they've reached the height of their budget crusade with this $150 HD camera that records to 1280 x 720 at its highest res. We've seen tapeless camcorders do this before, but that price is pretty insane. It records in H.264 quicktime files, and the camera takes 5mp native stills.

The Oh No You Didn't: I would expect that this captures the grainiest, most lifeless, tepid high def you've ever seen.
