CES2011: DXG Introduces ‘The Twist’ Widescreen High Definition Pocket Camcorder


TestFreaks Data











It’s been a while since I’ve heard from DXG, I still have and use one of their HD camcorders, I like it a lot actually. The new DXG Twist is sort of a pocket or flip style camera but the monitor twists to a horizontal view. Pricing will be $170 in February.

Shooting those silly everyday or once-in-a-lifetime moments has never been easier, thanks to the new DXG Twist (http://www.dxgusa.com) widescreen high definition pocket camcorder. Measuring the same size as today’s popular Smartphones, the DXG Twist features a 3.5-inch widescreen swivel display to easily grip and capture HD videos and photos in movie-like detail. Available in February, the DXG Twist will retail for $169.99. DXG also announced today new models, features and colors to its 2011 QuickShots line, available at retailers at the end of January for $119.99 to $129.99.

Recording High Definition Videos In Movie-Like Detail
Whether relaxing at the beach or enjoying a soccer game, the DXG Twist’s flexible recording options – film in either 1080p HD video at 30fps or in sports mode which records 720p HD at 60fps – will ensure that each memory is captured in vibrant, crisp high definition. The camcorder’s unique candy bar design and intuitive controls, allow users to easily adjust settings, record and view their files.

The DXG Twist is designed with convenient HDMI and USB 2.0 outputs, with an HDMI cable included in the package, for instant upload capability to popular sharing sites like YouTube or to watch directly on an HDTV. Capture up to 8 hours of video footage or take up to 500 16- megapixel photos with a 32GB SDHC card (sold separately).

“The DXG Twist brings a unique perspective to everyday video filming with its striking widescreen swivel display, full high definition recording technology and easy to grip compact design,” said Paul Goldberg, senior vice president of sales and marketing at DXG USA. “We are excited to add this fun product and other new models to our 2011 QuickShots line of popular pocket video cameras.”

QuickShots products feature extremely easy-to-use controls, seamless upload capabilities to video sharing sites and four vibrant color options – silver, purple, red, and blue.
