You probably remember DXG's insanely cheap DXG-566V HD camcorder, the US$150 answer to Sanyo's Xacti line. Well, DXG maybe didn't think the 566 was enough of a copycat: The company has totally revamped the 720p/30fps camcorder with a "sexy vertical design" to look a lot more like the Xacti. The low price is retained: the all-new DXG-569V HD only costs US$170, while Xactis still cost anywhere from US$260 up to US$700. The DXG also only comes in silver or black, a small price to pay... literally. Specs and availability after the jump.
