CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2009) - Whether mountain biking in Tahoe, sailing on the Atlantic, or skiing on Mount Hood, the DXG-125V (www.dxgusa.com) HD camcorder is a must-have companion to capture each exhilarating moment. Available at retailers today for $139.99, the new DXG-125V features a never before seen rugged weather-proof design that fits in the palm of your hand and captures true high-definition video and vibrant still images.
All-Terrain, All-Weather HD Video
Combining both style and performance, the DXG-125V HD camcorder was designed with sports and outdoor enthusiasts in mind. A durable rubber handgrip makes it easy to securely hold and protects the camcorder against bumps and drops when out on excursions, while the included carabiner and compass keep consumers on track during their adventures. The splash-proof exterior can be rinsed off if it falls in a muddy puddle along the trail or in the snow when getting off a chair lift.
The DXG-125V sports a 2-inch LCD display, letting users film and play back video with ease, while also providing entertainment when using the camcorder's built-in MP3 player. Capturing true HD video (720p) and great still images, the DXG-125V can film up to four hours of action-packed footage using an 8GB SD card. Equipped with a built-in HDMI slot, users can instantly share their outdoor activities with family and friends on the plasma or HDTV.
"The DXG-125V is a break-out product in the HD camcorder space. With its candy bar form factor that fits in the palm of your hand and rugged design, action sports lovers now have the ideal gadget that can withstand the rough outdoor conditions and capture their experiences in HD," said Paul Goldberg, senior vice president of sales and marketing at DXG USA. "We are excited to bring such an exciting product to market at such an affordable price, making the quality, compact HD camcorder accessible to all outdoor enthusiasts."
