CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA., July 28, 2005 -- DXG USA, one of the fastest growing digital camera manufacturers in the United States, today announced the introduction of two new 5.1 megapixel digital cameras designed for entry-level and step-up buyers. The two models will be available for shipping in August.

The camera also offers voice recorder functionality, TV-Out capability for viewing pictures on a television, five white balance settings, four still image settings (1MP, 3MP, 5MP, and 10MP using firmware interpolation) and a USB 2.0 interface.

DXG-552 - 5.1 Megapixel Slim Model

Priced at just $139.99, the stylish DXG-552 offers the same 5.1 megapixel sensor and full-motion video capabilities as the Model 568, but offers a larger 2.0" LTPS LCD housed within a slim body with a sleek chromed metal front. At 3.5" x 2.2" x 0.9", the camera is the size of a deck of playing cards. The DXG-552 and DXG-568 can both be used as a PC cam and ship with USB/AV cables, camera case, wrist strap, editing software and alkaline batteries.

"Our strong growth over the past year has been the result of camera models that provide quality and style at the right price," said Paul Goldberg, Sr. VP of Sales and Marketing for DXG USA. "These new models definitely continue in that tradition and we see them as being big sellers this holiday season. A few large retailers have already pre-ordered a significant number of units."
