The DXG-A80V is the first model in this new line of products and is available at retailers today for $299.99.

    The DXG-A80V sports an ultra-compact ergonomic design for comfortable filming and playback on an impressive 3-inch LCD touch-screen. With the ability to record true 1080p at 30fps or take digital still images up to 10 megapixels, the DXG-A80V is the most advanced camcorder in DXG’s current line of products.
