Summary: I'm happy with my little Vivitar camcorder and the picture quality is better than expected for the price. A video posted to Facebook was easy and looked quite good as does the pictures I've taken. Don't know how durable it is yet but if taken care of, it should last a while. The door over the battery compartment isn't easy to close and I'm afraid I'll break it so I'm very gentle with it. So far, so good, I'm glad I bought it.
Summary: A decent Camera for what I paid for it. It functions well; and it's east to use. The battery life is heinous!!! If you use it as a standard camera, you will get a decent amount of pictures out of it. If you use it as a camcorder, you will be feeding it batteries like there's no tomorrow. I was using it to record my kids dance practice. I had to replace the batteries twice in that one hour time block.
