The Riviera 720p HD Camcorder records real 720p high-definition video, captures still pictures up to 8MP image resolution and features a large and bright 3.0″ TFT screen. It’s part of DXG’s new Luxe Collection that combines high-definition technology and style in one camcorder that is hip, hot and haute couture.
For review, received the pink camcorder, but it’s available in many different colors and each camcorder comes with a matching case to to go with it.
Included in the box with the camcorder are (4) AAA Batteries, USB & AV Cable, an HDMI Cable, a CD-Rom which has the drivers and applications, software, a user’s manual, wrist strap and the matching carrying case.
What we liked:
The camcorder itself is not only lightweight but it’s easy to use. I managed to figure things out pretty quickly without reading the manual. I’m loving the design on the camcorder.. it’s kind of a quilted pattern and just looks stylish in my opinion.
It also comes with everything you need, except for an SD Card, which is sold separately.
In still mode the pictures came out pretty clear but the video part could be a little better.
What needs improvement:
Video quality was ok. I’ve seen better but it’s still fair quality for a price tag of around $150. Now we have a lot of low lights in our house so video was a little scratchy. When we went into the kitchen, where the lighting is much brighter, the scratchiness wasn’t there.. or at least noticeable to me.
The other thing we didn’t like too much was the sound quality. It seemed like the microphone didn’t pick things up very well. Hubby was talking to the twins while I recorded and during playback we could hear me breathing more than we could hear him. So the closer you are to the subject the better the microphone picks it up.
