Summary: Easy to use and inexpensive but batteries do not last more than 1/2hr and there is no power supply available. An 8GB memory card, which is an additional $10, only allows a little over an hour of recording - the manufacturer told me 2hr?
Summary: This camera works good for me. If you don't have something to carry it in, you might want to get the carry case they offer. It's made like a cheap camera, but if taken care of it could last a while. It's a good camera, not a lot of bells and whistles with it. Pretty basic. I have no complaints.
Summary: It's a nice little camera for the price. I would recommend it for a child or as a backup video camera. My smartphone takes such good videos I use it but keep the Vivian in my backpack. The controls are very small for large fingers but for the price, Yes I recommend it.
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.
