I returned my DXG-595V to walmart today, it just was not good enough.* The main problems I had with it was the AF system, when zooming in to video small object like a person or animal it aways had trouble hunting between the background and the object I wanted.* Also the audio is just so weak it needs an external jack.* Anyway I hope the next round will fix these issues.



DXG Please:

Add manual focus (or at least let us fix the focus)

Add external microphone jack

Increase bitrate
I agree, the ability to lock down iris and exposure too.

The new Aiptek 600 has just been shown off, you might like that. I don't know how much of an improvement it is though. The Samsung HMX20C does full HD at a reasonable price through.

PC economy hybrids;

a outdoor datytime filming unit with a cmos sensor, or ccd costing under 200.00 they can be compared to any model and just that they will do their best to proform to their standards, it is like a Imax film to cave drawing.

Economy or Top model, point in shoot or total manual controls. the choice is yours to decide what you like to film with just as long as you Have fun

Fishy, these controls cost next to nothing and there is little reason not to add them to models to improve them. If you know how to, you can actually film some things better with focus and exposure locked instead of wandering.

Still, some people around here seem to be after something more than the $100 cameras are giving, and I am happy to point them in the right direction to get what they want or need.

I just ordered this model and can't wait to get my hands on it to start having fun with it.
It was thanks to all your helpful online reviews, fishycomics on all the various models that allowed me to narrow down which camcorder to purchase.
I know that none of them have every feature that I'd like to see, but you can't beat the price. And at least I'll be able to start recording some family events until the next must have camcorder model comes along.

Sorry for the unsteadiness of the cam. I was holding it in my left hand while drawing. I need a tripod.. hehe.

Thank you for your information regarding the way to fix the problem. Can you please sent the firmware to me as well so I can install in my camcorder. Thank you.

Not sure if this is the best place to do this but I'm selling my extra DXG-595V if anyone is interested.* It is pretty much new in box.* I'll add in 2 X 1800 Mah batteries and a new sealed 4GB Sandisk SDHC card as well.* I just bought a dSLR and I need to offload some items.* PM me if interested.
