Cedar Electronics’ CDV-528: half camcorder, half PMP, totally chintzy
Regrettably, we can safely say that we’ve seen a similar mishmash before, and while we’ve no idea who actually finds these things worthwhile, Cedar Electronics is apparently giving it a go with the CDV-528. This handheld camcorder / PMP conglomerate boasts a 2.4-inch 480 x 234 resolution LCD, a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor capable of snagging stills and VGA-quality video, between 32MB and 128MB of internal storage space and an SD / MMC expansion slot to boot. You’ll also find PictBridge support, USB 2.0 connectivity, an AV output, some form of red-eye reduction and a rechargeable Li-ion cell. Interestingly, we’re not told what types of files this thing will actually support, but let’s just say that’s reason enough for you to avoid this like the plague, cool?
