My kids are growing up so fast and with another baby on the way it is making me want to remember every moment I can before they are all grown up. I was recently sent a DXG Luxe 1080p Slim HD Camcorder and it has already helped me record special memories from soccer games, outdoors playing, and so much more! This slim style camcorder is so stylish and fits me perfectly. I absolutely love that it comes with a coordinating wristlet to store the camcorder in since I am horrible at just tossing things where ever and scratching them all up.
This DXG Luxe 1080p Slim HD Camcorder actually comes with everything you need right down to a nice box to store anything you are not using. I keep it in my closet with all the cables and manual so when I need to charge or do anything I know where they are and don’t confuse them with the 329043 other cables I have.
Right away I was impressed with how thin this camcorder was. When not in use it was smaller then my cell phone! Here is it next to a pen- the pen is bigger!
I really like the flexibility of this screen! If I want to record the kids or record myself it’s easy to do so all while watching what I’m doing comfortably. I remember trying to vlog and then watching it back and being like ‘Ugh, I’m not lined up right’ and having to do it all over again! Not anymore!
The screen is touch which I love! Ever since my iPad I want to touch screen everything. You’ll often find me touching my laptop screen wondering why it’s not working. This lets me move through the menu quickly and easily.
Several of the buttons are on the side as well as the cable plug, the remaining buttons are on the inside as well as the battery storage area. I love that this is a plug in charge style so I can charge it over night and not spend additional money on batteries all the time. The power button is also on the inside so I can’t accidentally turn this on from my pocket. It also automatically turns on when you pop open the screen.
You can slide an SD card in at the top of the camcorder. I like this feature because I’m not a fan or pulling out wires and connecting things. Often times I am running around or traveling and just want to upload a quick video or photo and this is a great option. I do however wish the cover piece was a bit more sturdy I worry that it’s only a matter of time before it snaps right off.
When in recording mode it turns out that the DXG Luxe 1080p Slim HD Camcorder is one model that doesn’t allow zoom. When you attempt to zoom the zoom feature pops up but with the crossed out sign on it. There are buttons for the zoom feature so I really find it deceiving that you can’t zoom. Turns out it’s for the photo feature only.
Speaking of photos this camcorder can also take pictures! I really like this feature as none of my other HD Camcorders were able to do this. The quality of the photo is really nice. I think the color is slightly off but the clarity and sharpness is dead on.
I wanted to show you the quality of the camcorder. I used it the other day while making one of my recipes that required peeling, coring, and slicing apples. Here is my sample:
