Music and Movies on the Move: DXG USA DXG-305V Digital Video Camera

DXG USA DXG-305VThe DXG USA DXG-305V is an entry-level juggernaut. Don’t be surprised and don’t think it is all hyperbole. It’s not very often that you see both “entry-level” and “juggernaut” used in the same sentence. But read on, and you will understand why the DXG USA DXG-305V is such.

Most of the time, we equate and associate the word “entry-level” with cheaply made products. However, the DXG USA DXG-305V is going to prove you wrong. For the incredibly affordable price of $50, you get a full-featured all-in-one multimedia device. You get a digital camera, video recorder, voice recorder, music player and a PC camera all rolled into one nifty device.

16GB SD Cards Appear

Patriot 16GB SD CardStorage needs increasing? Don’t feel like you are the only one – everyone seems to consume more hard drive space, use more flash drives and SD cards, external hard drives and nearly every device we use has some form of memory card.

SD has quickly become the more widely accepted and used format of flash memory in addition to Compact Flash and USB Drives. Nearly every camera has one now, and even Sony who has always only had their Memory Stick Slot, has gone ahead and realized that they must at least have both to satisfy consumers.

16 and 32GB SDHC plus 8GB MicroSDHC Announced

Toshiba SDHC and MicroSHDCToshiba has been busy figuring out how to cram even more memory into the widely popular SD and Micro SD formats – they have stretched the capacity to 16 and 32GB for the latest SDHC capacity and 8GB in the MicroSDHC format.

According to Toshiba’s Japanese press release, the 16GB SDHC will run you about $350 and will be available in October 2007. The 32GB SDHC monster will be available for double that price, or seven hundred bucks, but y’all are going to have to wait until January 2008 for the biggest card on the block.

For those of you with the need to store lots of photo and media on the go (and have a player which supports the MicroSDHC format), Toshiba didn’t forget you! Their announcement of the 8GB SHDC capacity will be a welcome message for mobile developers as well. While the 2GB capacity of MicroSD today is just fine for most people, wouldn’t you rather have your entire iTunes library on a convenient MicroSD card the size of half a postage stamp?
