Turn the camera on, set the round selector switch to the setup functions (all the way to the right), hold the zoom control towards the zoom position and press the display button. The firmware version will be the first item on the menu.

Press in the exposure button on the back to read the selection

This is an odd question but where can I even get this camera? Walmart is sold out on its online store. I see links from google, but honestly who can you trust out there?

Ive also tried all the other common big box stores, ebay isnt any help either.

And of course I have looked up the various incarnations of the same camera.

Thanks a bunch, and thanks for the review of the camera.

That's the exact same camera,just being sold under another brand.

All the accessories are the same as well, even the little carry bag.

I noticed that the instruction manual in the picture appears to be in Chinese, at least the title on the cover looks that way.

Looks like you come out a little ahead since the shipping is free, but there have been some issues with dead pixels and other little things that make getting one from Walmart a much safer option. If something's not right you can take it back.

Plus you are paying about $40 more than the ones purchased from W.

However, since Walmart is out of the things, this may be the only way to get one!

I'm not knocking an ebay seller, particularly since they have 100% positive feedback, but do note their "return" policy. I quote; "If a problem occurs with a product, we'll support you with advice, and if necessary give you instructions how to return it to China for a repair, replacement, or credit towards buying a different model"

Yeah good call, based on a similar forum regarding the HD-10 version, aparently you can only get this on ebay or otherwise.

The DXG version is the only one you can get at W.

Its interesting to me at how many copies of the DXG there are.

I ask Walmart, grab a raincheck, ifthey allow online, maybe they'll place, or placed orders, andcan give you a date of on sale again. Sounds like thiswas a goodtimefor a sale though.

Ebay, with that comment above, andam sure you wanted a refund you'll have to pay the return postage, if wanted an exchange you have to pay that postage. who would pay for the return back to you/

$240.00 is awefully alot of dough. You arecovering theshipping, the fees, andall his expenses.

I keep looking and not give up.

The main company, is out there,and am sure they be hapy to ship a camera but I am also sure 50 or more are needed to purchase. you'll still get hit on shipping and papers LOL

this is like with the (cough) Aiptek model in/out of stock

keep an eye out and it will show up.
