Might I Interest You in a 10MP Camera For $170?

Technology is getting cheaper and cheaper, but I didn’t think that it got this cheap. If you’re willing to take a chance on DXG of Taiwan, they’ll sell you a 10-megapixel digital camera for a mere $170. That’s worlds cheaper than any other 10MP digicam on the market, so you’ve got to wonder if there’s a catch.

Looking up and down the spec sheet, you find numbers that are very much in line with the competition. The lens can optically zoom in and out at 3x and the digital zoom adds to the intimacy at 4x. There’s also face detection technology, focus illuminator, ISO 100-1600, TV-out, autofocus tracking, and 32MB of internal memory to accompany the SD/MMC expansion slot. So far, so good.

So, where’s the catch? As far as I can tell, there isn’t one. That said, until I actually take some pictures with the DXG digital camera, I can’t really speak to the image quality that results.
