Good little camera, even with a hole burned in the side!

Summary: I purchased this camera about a year ago to film my two little kids and all their silliness. The video quality on this camera is fantastic, though the sound does leave a little something to be desired- if you're behind the camera, the sound is crystal clear, if you're in front, not so much. You are still able to hear sounds, even those 10 or more feet away, but they are a little tinny and there's a hint of white noise.
Summary: Recently had received a DXG 533V camera as a Xmas gift from a family member. It's a HD model sold via the Shopping Channel and pretty much the same unit as the 535 and 580 models. First impression out of the box was cheap plasticy and gimmicky. Controls were the first source of utter frustration, just trying find out how to turn the damn thing on or start recording was a pain in the ass. Nothing was intuitive or clearly marked.
Summary: Nice camera. The only issue I have experienced is the battery charger. I have trouble placing the battery in the charger, kind of strange charger. Otherwise, the camera seems to take nice pictures and downloads are easy enough.
Summary: I bought this camera for my 12 year old sons birthday. He has had a cheapo kids camera for about 3 years and took great care of it. Now his technical apptitude is much greater so he asked for specific things like better sound quality and zoom. He and his friends have alot of fun using it. He loves it and says it is very easy to use. I tried it out and uploaded some vidoe onto my cpu and it looks and sounds great.
Summary: This is my second purchase of a DXG Camcorder. I lost the original purchase and loved it so much that I decided purchase another one. I am 16 yrs old and I use the camera for entertainment. I produce little films of my friends and I.
Summary: I use this camcorder as a Still Camera for Products to sell on [@] and as a motion video recorder for youtube videos, instructional videos and for my childrens Cheerleading competitions. It is very easy to use and learn but it really needs an optical zoom to make it complete. I am impressed with the quality construction and ease of use.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Large LCD, Low Cost, Quality Construction
