The latest additions to the DXG product suite include the palm-sized DXG-301V video camera and the DXG-328 ultra slim camera. With a company focus on the sub $300 market category, DXG now has one of the largest lines in entry-level digital cameras with eight product choices below a street price of $200.One of DXGÂs newest additions is the compact DXG-301V.

The camera is capable of shooting video image resolutions up to 640 x 480 and still images up to 2048 x 1536. It features a 1.8-inch TFT display, AVI, TV-Out, USB and SD/MMC expansion.
